If you're into urban parks, there are two great options. Memorial Park is perfect for sports fanatics, with its jogging and biking trails and tennis courts. In Hermann Park, you can get wild at the Houston Zoo or keep it Shakespearean at the Miller Outdoor Theatre. More interested in the greater galaxy? You’ll find some serious star power at the Space Center Houston, which houses a number of hands-on exhibits and even offers the opportunity to meet an astronaut.
For a more artistic experience, head to the Houston Theatre District. Located downtown, the district encompasses nine major performing arts organizations and six performance halls. From opera to orchestra, you’re sure to get your fill of performing arts in Houston.
Houston is a great place to shop, given that prices tend to be lower than in other U.S. cities. You can buy practically anything you can think of at The Galleria, the largest mall in Texas. If you want to make a day of it, you can also visit one of its many restaurants, or the ice rink on the ground floor.
Houston is an extremely multicultural city and this is reflected in the city's dining options. Head to one of the many Tex-Mex, authentic Mexican, Texas steak or seafood restaurants scattered all over the city. For spice of a different variety, opt for the high-quality Indian and Pakistani places in the Mahatma Gandhi district. Whichever you choose, you’re unlikely to be disappointed or to leave hungry!
Any season is the most wonderful time of the beer in Houston, which is home to a number of breweries. Many of them offer tours as well as a range of tasty suds to sample after a long day of sightseeing. Areas to check out include Montrose, an edgy, hip neighbourhood known for its cocktails; Washington Avenue, which attracts the well-heeled, glamorous set; and Midtown, where after-work drinks often end up going on long into the night.
