A satisfying driving experience

Houstonist has a question for you: “What is the most satisfying driving experience in Houston?” I’d call it a toss-up between going eastbound on Memorial from 610 to downtown, especially once you get past the last traffic light just before Shepherd, and westbound on Allen Parkway from the exit off I-45, either to Shepherd/Kirby or just to Montrose. The latter sometimes serves as a nice alternate route home for me when 45 is backed up all the way to Conroe, so it gets extra “satisfaction” points. What do you think?

    I have to say that arriving at one’s destination is the most satisfying driving experience in Houston. Arriving includes also finally pulling into the parking space.

  2. I second Allen Parkway. But two runners-up:

    It’s not quite in Houston, but the Fred Hartman Bridge is pretty incredible.

    The HOV ramp from the Katy freeway into dotnwon, inbound. Kinda scary, but amazing view.
