Orbit: Houston’s Best Mascot

Want to know where the best dog park in town is? How about the best places to bike, jog, or have a picnic?

Well, you can check out our picks in the sports & recreation section of this year’s Best of Houston issue, which we published this week. You can see our choices for best dog park (Bill Archer Bark Park), Texan (J.J. Watt, duh…), and beach (East Beach).

And go ‘Stros.
