Houston, Texas

Houston lands on the top of many lists: America’s fastest growing city and its most culturally diverse, for example. With more arts organizations than any US city other than New York, there’s a vibrant creative scene here too. Houstonians eat out more than any other Americans, and they’ve got seemingly endless options to choose from in the city, from traditional Texas steakhouses to Tex-Mex.

There are so many places to visit in downtown Houston, but to experience it like a local, check out Montrose -- one of the city’s more unique and quirky neighborhoods -- alive with cafes, vintage shops and galleries. The city’s 19th Street is loaded with shops and restaurants, a place where the fast pace slows down. You’ll never run out of things to do in Houston, a city of contrasts and boundless energy.

BEST BET:
The Museum District is a must-do for art lovers. Visit 19 cultural institutions within a walkable distance, including the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, considered one of the nation’s finest art museums. Those with a more casual interest enjoy the atmosphere during the weekly happy hour every Thursday, where they sip cocktails and order snacks from high-end food trucks.

REASONS TO GO:
  • A Stellar Experience: You may never get beyond Earth’s orbit, but you can visit the Astronaut Training Facility and the Mission Control room at Space Center Houston.

  • Go Green: A 12-acre oasis in the middle of Houston, Discovery Green beckons with shady patios, outdoor music, kayaking on Kinder Lake and cool public art.

  • Shop in Style: The Galleria is in a class by itself, with 400 mostly upscale stores, restaurants, movie theaters and an indoor ice rink.

  • Rock on: At the Houston Museum of Natural Science, there’s an impressive display with more than 60 large-scale dinosaur mounts, plus a dig pit that kids love. Some of the world’s rarest gems and minerals are on display here, plus there’s a planetarium, butterfly center and giant screen theater.
OFF THE BEATEN PATH: ORANGE SHOW CENTER FOR VISIONARY ART
There’s no shortage of fun things to do in Houston, and some of them are wildly original. Check out the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art, an eccentric complex (located in a residential neighborhood south of downtown) that includes the Beer Can House and the Orange Show Monument, an art environment built over the course of one man’s lifetime.

WHEN TO GO:
Spring is bluebonnet season in Texas, when the state’s signature flower flourishes on the roadside. Summer can get steamy hot in Houston, but it’s when locals take to Discovery Green for free concerts and head to Buffalo Bayou for kayaking. Fall brings the best temperatures of the year in Houston, as well as football madness at Rice University and NRG Stadium. In late winter, people flock to Houston from all over the world for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, where you can get a real feel for Texas cowboy culture.

TRAVEL TIP:
Short on time? See all of Houston for free in one place: the observation deck on the 60th floor of JPMorgan Chase Tower. From this vantage point, you have a unique perspective of the whole metro area.
