I wouldn’t go out of my way to drive up from Clear Lake to visit this attraction, but if you are coming back from the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, the Sam Houston State Park can be a nice place to stop and let the kids run around. This park features a 67 ft. steel and concrete statue of Sam Houston by local artist David Adickes. You can see the statue from I-45 but won’t be sure how to get to it. Access to the statue is off 75 South, so if you are on I-45 south, take exit 109, Hwy 40 east to Hwy 75, then north to the statue and park. There’s a gift shop and replica of the giant head for photos.
