The Basics

The Williams Waterwall might just be Houston’s most photographed spot, and for good reason. Due to its popularity, especially as a photo op, the Waterfall features on many sightseeing tours of Houston, along with other noteworthy attractions, like Minute Maid Park, Space Center Houston, Rice University, and Hermann Park. Book a private city tour to ensure the Waterwall is included on your itinerary. In front of the waterwall is a stone wall with a triangular pointed top and three open arch doorways. Walk through the archways for a closeup view of the impressive fountain.
