Pyramids in Texas ? Well this is not just an imagination, but rather a very enjoyable reality in Gavleston, Texas.

If you are visiting Houston, Texas or the nearby areas then you should definitely visit this extremely fun place which will be loved straight away from kids of all ages, whether them be young or older ones.

No wonder why Moody Gardens are characterized as 'A little piece of paradise' by locals or those who have been there!

It has two huge glass pyramids where you can enter either a rain forest environment, such as beautiful exotic parrots or and aquarium environment. It is totally up to you, just keep in mind that you won't have time for both, since we needed about 2-3 hours to fully enjoy the rain forest pyramid. My advise is that if you intend to visit it more than once, then you should better purchase the family yearly membership. This will save you loads of money and will be a serious reason to return there, since there are many new things occurring often.

Great place for kids and those who hide a little 'adventurer' in them.

The rainforest pyramid was amazing! The pyramid construction seems to have the same proportions as the ones in Giza (Egypt).
