After a brief training session, the expert guides of Segway-authorized SegCity Houston herd up to eight gliders perched effortlessly atop Segway I2s. All mechanical roadsters are designed to handle the rocky off-road terrains of the Trail Blazin' tour, which weaves through forest trails dappled with sunlight. The Adventure Trail tour grants riders a behind-the-scenes peek at Burroughs Park as they whir past trees, humming wildlife, and a sparkling lake. Tours safely run rain or shine, only halting for exceptionally icy or stormy weather or passing herds of lake monsters.
Blooming from a family-run arts-and-crafts business more than a quarter century ago, Woodland Art & Frame now focuses on accentuating masterpieces with complementary borders. Aside from performing traditional services, such as dry-mounting posters and retouching oil paintings, certified framers enlist a virtual framer program to help patrons visualize their artwork in different mattes, frames, and ’80s hairstyles before finalizing selections. Framers also transform flat-screen TVs into functional artwork by crafting screen-hugging frames, and sometimes visit homes or offices to assess aesthetic needs.

With two near-death experiences, several haunted residences, and an adolescence spent guiding informal ghost tours under her belt, Haunted Houston Tours’ founder Kasey Clark is a self-professed ghost magnet. After a lackluster ghost-tour experience sparked an eerie ambition in Kasey’s heart, she dedicated her life to chasing ghosts. She refused to construct tours that relied on theatrical fabrications of most ghost tours. Instead, she founded Haunted Houston to explore the rich history of spooky, well-documented hauntings.
Kasey and her team of engaging guides—who boast more than 200 years of combined experience and study of the paranormal—lead well-researched tours and immersive ghost hunts based on historical facts that engage even the most devout skeptics. They shuffle off to Old Town Spring almost every night, creeping through haunted streets and graveyard paths while investigating stories of death, murder, disease, war, and cookie theft.
Jutting above the street, the modernist lines of Rafael Moneo's Audrey Jones Beck Building echo the eclectic collection found within. Under sky openings that let in natural light and the bitter gazes of pigeons who can’t seem to get their work shown, visitors meander through galleries that span the breadth of human artistry, from ancient sculpture to modern painting. Noteworthy works from the more than 64,000 pieces include Pablo Picasso's colorful cubist Two Women in Front of a Window, Edgar Degas's achingly expressionistic Woman Drying Herself, and an untitled sketch by Jackson Pollock that shows his wild, abstract genius evolving toward his celebrated drip paintings. A treasure trove of cultural artifacts from Africa, Asia, and the Americas expands the museum’s scope and transports visitors back in time as they gaze on a palpably pensive ceramic ballplayer from Mexico's Classic Veracruz culture or a life-size royal head forged from copper for a Nigerian royal court.
Groupon Celebrates Pride Month
Over the last 50 years, the gay-rights movement in America has overcome tremendous obstacles to become a powerful voice for inclusion and diversity. Even as it has grown, the movement—like Groupon—is local at heart, and we applaud the commitment to real change that improves everyday lives.
At Groupon, we are happy to add our voices to those celebrating PRIDE, their achievements as a social movement and a continued march to equality for the LGBT community. Plus, we love a chance to dig that rainbow wig out of storage.
This month—and throughout the year—we salute our merchants and customers who support PRIDE and all efforts that promote dignity, respect, and equal opportunity. We're highlighting these merchants' deals with a special badge to show Groupon's pride in working with people who share our values.
