Houston city guide and hotels

Houston's exhilarating combination of laidback cowboy charm, a strong emphasis on the arts, and its thriving business center make it something of an underrated metropolis. The prominent skyline ranks as the third tallest in North America, coupled with architectural styles from Italian Renaissance to space-age chic. Whether you find the ?real? Houston on a pub crawl of the historic Old Town, rifling through the racks on an Upper Kirby shopping spree or blasting out of town to visit NASA, the Texan city welcomes its visitors with enthusiasm and vigor.

Houston Neighborhoods

Museum District

Houston's Museum District lives up to its name, giving the seven million annual visitors more than 16 heritage institutes to browse, among them standouts like the Museum of Fine Arts, Byzantine Fresco Chapel Museum and Rothko Chapel. With tree-lined parks and avenues, and an easily navigable center, wandering only enhances the experience.

Downtown: Central Business District and Theater District

Home to the Central Business District, as well as the 17-block Theater District, you can find Houston's working elite, performing arts companies and the city's four professional sports teams, all in the Downtown area. Head to the bars and restaurants of the Main Street Corridor and Preston Station when the sun dips low, or chill out with a frappe from Niko Niko's in Market Square Park.

Uptown: Galleria and River Oaks

Into fine dining and up-scale shopping? Stay uptown (actually to the west of the city center) so you can window-shop the boutiques of River Oaks and the chain stores of The Galleria mall, before settling down for a generous Italian meal at Tony restaurant, a Houston institution. Other dining options include the Mahatma Gandhi District to the southwest of town, where you can savor Indian and Pakistani cuisine.


Things to do

Johnson Space Center

The 45-minute drive out of the city to get to the Johnson Space Center is absolutely time well spent. Visiting NASA's center for human spaceflight training, research and flight control gives visitors young and old the chance to see mission control, view astronaut training activities, and take a tram ride around the history of space travel.

Houston Zoo

You can get a glimpse of more than 6,000 animals at Houston Zoo, but popular activities include feeding the long-tongued giraffes, watching otters frolic underwater or meeting the Texas giant centipede ? the impressive Bug House is a safe, eye-opening experience with insects that requires far more curiosity than bravery.

Minute Maid Park

This is the place to witness the Houston Astros in action. Take a sneak peek behind the scenes with a tour, or catch a baseball game at the 40,000+ capacity venue. And don?t forget to look up other sporting legends like the Houston Rockets, Houston Texans and the Houston Dynamos while you?re in town.


Annual events and festivals

Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo

Beginning in late February, the city's signature event, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo lets you feel the thrill of championship rodeo, along with side events like wine shows and music concerts.

Bayou City Art Festival

Held in the spring and fall, you can find everything from modern mixed-media to traditional print-making at The Bayou City Art Festival, while munching on local foods all day long in Tranquility Park.

Theater District Day

Schedule your trip over the last Sunday in August and you?ll get free backstage passes, costume exhibitions and previews of upcoming shows in and around the city's lively Theater District.

Transportation

Located 23 miles from Downtown, the George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) is where most travelers touch down. Rail passengers who prefer a more laid-back approach disembark at the station on Washington Avenue. To get around the city, Houston has over 160 miles of dedicated bikeways, and in Downtown Houston, walkers can drop in at restaurants and shops via a seven-mile network of underground pedestrian tunnels and skywalks.
