Until this year, Houston had only been a place I had stopped through while flying to other destinations. But now I’ve already been there 3 times this year! And let me tell you, there is so much to do. Whether you only have a short day or 2 like I did or an entire week, I’m rounding up the best things to do in Houston TX!
The Best Things to Do in Houston TX
- Where to eat in Houston TX:
For breakfast, try The Breakfast Klub. You can’t pass up their chicken and waffles! If you still didn’t get your chicken fix at breakfast, try out Lee’s Fried Chicken & Donuts for lunch. And for dinner try Goode Company for seafood, Hugo’s for Mexican food and B&B Butchers for a great steak. And for a sweet little treat, try the red velvet cupcakes at Crave Cupcakes.
- What to do in Houston TX:
If you’ve never been, you have to at least go to the Space Center once. And make sure you go by Discovery Green on a nice afternoon. They have restaurants, art and live music there.
- Where to shop in Houston TX:
For home décor, visit Biscuit. They also have the cutest little painted wall outside too! = ) For clothing, visit the Elaine Turner in Houston. I love her shoe and bag collection the most, and noting compares to getting to see them and try them all on in person. And À Bientôt is a must. They have such a great selection of unique jewelry, bags and accessories.
- Where to stay in Houston TX:
Four Seasons. This gorgeous hotel is located in Houston near tons of great restaurants within walking distance. My room was on the pool level and walked straight out to a patio, the pool and hot tub. The lobby was a modern mixture of chic and masculine. And in the lobby was their lobby bar and restaurant, Bayou & Bottle. They made me a signature cocktail when I arrived and it was so yummy! Everything from the drinks to the food to the hotel room and the staff at the hotel was amazing. I will definitely be visiting Houston again soon, and next time I’ll make sure that I have more time!
