San Jacinto Battleground and Monument

Back in June we headed to Houston to see an Astros game and check out a couple of Houston area parks. Truly one of the highlights was the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site and Monument. This should be on every Texan’s bucket list. (summary of battle)

The elevator ride to the top is $4 and is probably a “do it once just to say you did it” kind of thing. The views are nice though.
