Hermann Park – If you’re looking for a day out then look no further than this sprawling 445-acre urban park. This park is located east of Rice Military and features train ad pedal boats, gardens, Art in the Park, Lake Plaza and so much more! This is the perfect place to spend the day on a nice winter day.

James Turrell “Twilight Epiphany” Skyspace at Rice University – Come out and catch the spectacular light sequence at sunset and sunrise. The LED lighting sequence showcase an assortment of colorful hues onto the open knife-edge ceiling. This is a free event worth watching where reservations are not required. Though the best time to come out is sunrise and sunset, the Skyspace is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Kindred Stories – A good book is the perfect pairing for a winter day. This cozy bookstore in historic Third Ward features works written by Black authors and goods curated by Black artists. The store is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 12 noon to 5 p.m.

The Menil Collection – Located in the heart of Houston is the museum inspired by the legacy of Italian artist John and Dominique de Menil.

"We are so grateful to have found Sandcastle Homes! They’ve made the home-buying process so much easier and more enjoyable than we could have imagined. They are responsive, respectful, and always put the customer first. We truly appreciate the speed and accuracy with which they’ve addressed any concerns we’ve brought up throughout the process and can’t wait to officially own our first home. Sandcastle has a team that clearly values one another as much as they do their customers, and you can feel a sense of community when working with them."

"Sandcastle did an amazing job with my house. They came through on everything they promised. Jose Salas, the construction manager, is very helpful even after we closed on the house. He goes above and beyond. Getting to meet the owner, Salomon, during the closing was a great experience as many other builders don’t do this. We love our house and the quality of it!!"

Enrique and Judith

"We just moved into our new home by Sandcastle. Since the beginning of the process the whole Sandcastle team paid great attention to our requests and responded rapidly. We were lucky to get in contract in time for us to choose colors, kitchen design, finishes and other and all our requests were reflected in our new house. At the end of the closing, the team always kept the same great attitude towards us and helped us with any question or request. We would say one of the greatest things about Sandcastle is that they really back up what they sell: best price, best service, best quality in town. We ended up extremely pleased with our new house."

Andres and Marcela

"I just moved into my new Sandcastle home and I think it’s a wonderful place to live. They have been very helpful, particularly Lynette and Steve. From the owner Mike Salomen down, it has been a truly positive experience. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to buy a new home that is built of high quality to consider this home builder."
