If Houston isn’t on your summer bucket list, it should be. As the fourth most populous city in the United States, you’ll never run out of things to see and do there. Like the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site or the Miller Outdoor Theatre, the only proscenium theatre in the country that offers an eight-month season of free performances. Visit Houston—you’ll love every minute of it.
Sprawling Houston serves up Texas-sized portions of shopping, dining, culture and entertainment. Exploring is easy and comfortable, as many of our Houston hotels offer complimentary shuttle services. Additionally, Houston’s labyrinth of underground tunnels and sky bridges help guests get to and from popular restaurants, shops and other points of interest in climate-controlled comfort.
There’s much more to this Lone Star city than Tex Mex, BBQ and country music. Houston is also home to a 17-block theater district and eight performing arts companies. Most Houston hotels are just minutes from key attractions like the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, the Museum of Natural Science, the Houston Zoo and Aquarium, NASA and the Livestock show, billed as the largest rodeo in the world. Bayou Place is another top draw in Houston. This sleek, multi-use complex promises an escape from the Texas heat as well as great full-service restaurants, pubs, live music venues and multiple theatres.
In cooler months, check out Market Square Park in the downtown historic district for entertainment, dining, public art displays and tons of green space. The Uptown/Galleria area is another popular area that’s home to several top Houston hotels, upscale shops like Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, and a variety of trendy eateries.
