HOUSTON - Houston is the land of the selfie if you know where to pose. KPRC 2 has gathered up some of the best locations to snap a shot around town. 

Where did we miss? Let us know in the comments below.

1. Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park

Located in Uptown Houston, visitors are attracted to the massive water wall and live oak trees. Founded in 1983, this public park features a 64-foot fountain that re-circulates 11,000 gallons of water each minute. This park is the perfect destination if you want a waterfall in your background.

2. Biscuit Paint Wall

Right outside of Sebastian Boileau’s Biscuit Home, a home decor shop, stands a multi-colored wall with the hashtag #BiscuitPaintWall. Visitors can gather and take fun, expressive pictures.

3. Smither Park

Dedicated to the memory of John Smith and designed by Dan Phillips, this destination is full of artwork ranging from an amphitheater to a covered pavilion. Each artwork is mosaic and created from recycled material. People looking for an artistic, cultural background can visit the park.

4. Discovery Green

This 12-acre urban park is located in downtown Houston, adjacent to the George R. Brown Convention Center. Some of the park features include Kinder Lake, The Lake House, and Gateway Fountain. The park also attracts people for jogging, yoga, and enjoying performances.

5. James Turrell Skyspace at Rice University

The skyspace, called Twilight Epiphany, is a two leveled pyramid structure made to house 120 people and engineered to host musical performances and act as a laboratory for students majoring in music. Just before sunrise and at sunset, an LED light sequence projects onto the ceiling.

6. McGovern Centennial Gardens

Selfies with flowers and other scenic backdrops are just a click away in these gardens. The themed garden rooms are situated along a spacious central lawn. The gardens have 490 new trees of more than 50 species, 760 hedge shrubs, 55,000 perennial bulbs, 650 azaleas and 4.5 acres of grass.

7. Buffalo Bayou Park

Ravaged by Hurricane Harvey, Buffalo Bayou Park will rise again in all its beauty. The staff are cleaning the area after widespread flooding. The 160-acre green space that stretches from Shepherd Drive to Sabine Street between Allen Parkway and Memorial Drive is a beloved outdoor area where selfies are a must.


did she really just start COLLEGE today ... (that third pic tho... #grown)

8. “Preservons La Creation”

Take a photo with this enormous mural on Fannin at Tuam St. The artwork depicts a take on Da Vinci's Sistine Chapel, but instead of touching Adam, this God-like figure is holding a spraypaint can. The mural may take center stage in some of your photos, but it surely is a special background as well in a selfie.
