In Houston, much of daily life happens outdoors, thanks to mild, year-round temperatures. Take time to explore eclectic, culture-filled neighborhoods, galleries and attractions, which offer diverse activities and vibes that can only be found here.
Take the food, for example. Countless cutting-edge chefs have made a home in Houston, where diners eat out more than residents of any other city. You’ll find James Beard Award-winners and internationally renowned chefs serving up innovative cuisine that frequently catches the attention of foodies in Bon Appetit, Food & Wine and Saveur.
The stylish dining scene is only a slice of Houston’s epicurean side, a fact that the city’s culinary masterminds intend to prove with the Houston Culinary Tours. Each intimate 16-person, chef-led tour shows the hidden side of the city’s food scene, one taco truck and ethnic market at a time.
Venture downtown during your stay and discover a thriving professional arts scene with professional resident companies in ballet, opera, symphony and theater, making it one of the few U.S. cities that can boast the same. The nearby Museum District stakes its claim as the country’s fourth largest with 18 cultural powerhouses set within blocks of one another.
A city where urban chic meets Southern hospitality!
