Answer: There are three ways to enter the Houston Tunnel System.

Two entrances offer the most direct access to the tunnels. The most widely known is located at the corner of McKinney and Main near the Main Street Square rail stop. The Wells Fargo Plaza near Louisiana Street also offers direct access.

Another easier way to enter is in Enterprise Plaza on Dallas Street. Keep in mind this is in an office building and may close around the same time as the offices.
