In a state where everything’s bigger and better, Houston measures up, literally. At 655 square miles, it’s the fourth-most populated American city. This vastness in size equates to an enormous number of attractions and activities, which are surprisingly easy to get to, thanks to an excellent freeway system and the METRO light rail line. Whether you’re looking for a weekend getaway or family-friendly vacation, this city is where Southern hospitality meets urban chic.

Cultural Enthusiasts, Get Your Fix

For the culture seeker, Houston is filled with world-class dining, arts, hotels, shopping and nightlife. From one of the top children’s museums in the U.S. to the Space Center’s Kids Space Place, this Southern city offers endless attractions that appeal to adults and children alike. Or, you could get lost in the Houston Museum District, which boasts four zones of diverse museums, galleries and cultural centers dedicated to promoting art, science, history and culture.

For live entertainment, in the spring or fall, spend happy hour listening to local musicians at the 12-acre Discovery Green Park. And, don’t miss the great outdoors. Hiking and biking trails abound in the city’s 52-mile Buffalo Bayou outdoor recreation area near downtown. In the 445-acre Hermann Park, ride a train, take a paddleboat out on McGovern Lake, or stroll in the Japanese Garden. This and more await you in one of the greenest cities in the U.S.
