Things to do in Houston
As the most populous city in Texas, there are plenty of things to do in Houston today. Whether you’re looking for a full touristy experience or want to get off the beaten path, there’s a wide range of Houston events and attractions to choose from. Whatever your budget and style, Houston has something to offer every traveler.
Places of interest in Houston
There’s something for everyone in Houston. The city is well known as the world’s leading center for space exploration, and kids and adults alike will enjoy the excitement of a trip to Space Center Houston, where you can learn all about NASA and get a behind-the-scenes look at space exploration.
For something completely different, don’t miss the Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park in uptown Houston. This multi-story sculptural fountain offers a thoroughly tranquil experience and is truly a sight to behold. The waterwall was constructed in 1985 and has become a prominent part of the city landscape - if you’re lucky, you might even catch a concert there.
Don’t miss out on Buffalo Bayou Park when in Houston. This 2.3-mile park runs along the banks of the Buffalo Bayou in the downtown area of the city and covers a total of 160 acres. It’s a great place to run, walk, cycle - or simply get away from it all if you need some time out from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
You’re also sure to spot the Pioneer Memorial, a granite obelisk in Hermann Park which is dedicated to the early pioneers who founded Houston.
Houston’s culture and history
From live music to incredible southern food, Houston is a city brimming with culture. Be sure to pay a visit to the Houston Museum District, where you’ll find 19 museums grouped together into 4 walkable zones. Some of the best include The Children’s Museum of Houston, a bright, bold and fun interactive museum that big kids and little kids alike are sure to love, and the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
The Menil Collection is a must-visit for art lovers. Admission is free, and you’ll discover a collection of some 19,000 paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs and rare books, including works by Cy Twombly, Max Ernst, and Joan Miró. However, the collection isn’t just focused on contemporary art. There are exhibitions covering art from the ancient world, surrealism, and everything in between.
You’ll also find the Rothko Chapel within the grounds of the Menil Collection, a peaceful place which serves as a chapel as well as a gallery, with 14 paintings by Mark Rothko.
You’ll almost always find concerts in Houston, whether at one of the big venues or a smaller, more intimate gig at a jazz bar. Whatever style of music you’re into, you’ll find something to suit you in Houston. Perhaps catch a concert by the Houston Symphony Orchestra at the Jones Hall or see some musical theater at Theatre Under The Stars. In fact, Houston has permanent resident companies in opera, ballet, music and theater, so you’re sure to find something that caters to your tastes on your trip.
If you’re in town in March, be sure to check out the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the largest livestock exhibition and rodeo in the world, and a staple on Houston’s cultural calendar. Founded in 1931, the 20-day event has a jam-packed schedule of events which naturally features rodeo and livestock competitions, but also includes concerts, shopping and a carnival.
Areas surrounding Houston
There’s plenty to see and do in Houston, but if you want to explore what the surrounding areas have to offer, too, then you’re in for a treat as the area is rich with culture, nature and activities.
Galveston Island is just 50 miles south of Houston and is a great place for a day trip - or even longer if you have the time. Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier is a retro-style pier where you can have a ride on the big wheel or a rollercoaster, whilst Galveston Island State Park offers 2000 acres of nature, from dunes to crashing waves.
In the other direction, 50 miles north of Houston, you’ll find the sprawling Sam Houston National Forest. One of the most popular things to do here is to hike the 128-mile Lone Star Hiking Trail - although you don’t have to walk the whole thing!
You could even explore what the other cities in Texas have to offer. The state capital, Austin, is just a short coach ride away - taking between 3 and 3.5 hours on a FlixBus. The two cities have a very different vibe, so if you have time to visit both in one trip, you’ll get a great feel for the diversity that the Lone Star State has to offer!
