Pearland's Pears: Follow the trail of the town's famed symbol

PEARLAND, Texas (KTRK) -- Pearland has a fruitful name.

So what better way to celebrate it with the symbol and its claim to fame - the pear.

"It was initiated by the Pearland Convention & Visitors Bureau to promote tourist activity in Pearland," Pearland Convention & Visitors Bureau Executive Director Kim Sinistore said.

The Pear-Scape Trail features 20, 4-foot fiberglass pears. The feature also provides a neat scavenger hunt for visitors.

They have all been placed around Pearland with one at King's Biergarten, the Pearland Town Center, Pearland Animal Hospital along with several other businesses and parks. See the full list of locations below.
