You Need To Experience This Amazing Lazy River That’s So Perfectly Texas

Relax under the Houston sun as you float around this incredible Texas-shaped lazy river.

The Marriott Marquis Houston is hiding a uniquely Texan secret. Viewed from above, their rooftop lazy river is actually in the shape of Texas itself.

The lazy river is a whopping 530 feet long and sits 100 feet above the bustling streets of downtown Houston. This stunning river will let you travel around the entire state without a plane ticket – just hop on an inflatable and float along the Texas border. The pool is about 3.6 feet deep and it will take you about 15 minutes to cruise around the entire length.

At night, the pool sparkles with light and creates an even more serene oasis. The rooftop also features shady cabanas and cushy lounge chairs for when you feel like drying off. And of course, the view is absolutely breathtaking.
