Flights to Houston

America’s fourth largest city is many things to its 2.2 million residents – and the many tourists who arrive on flights to Houston every year. It’s an energy capital, rodeo town, space travel innovator, international arts destination and is also home to some of the best restaurants in the south.

Much like its home state Texas, Houston is impossible to pin down. It mixes the old stereotypes of Southern hospitality and cowboys of the Wild West with the affluent skyline and financial districts of a city built on oil. As the only major US city untamed by zoning laws, these multiple facets exist side by side, meaning each street is an unpredictable mix of old and new. This is a city where it’s just as easy to catch a show at the opera house as it is to track down a pair of authentic, handmade cowboy boots. And that’s what makes it such a diverse travel destination.

Houston is home to three separate skylines jagged with dazzling skyscrapers towering over leafy residential neighbourhoods. These are packed with world famous museums, fashionable shopping districts such as The Galleria, and art galleries including the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.

The Rothko Chapel is where art meets meditation, offering peaceful respite for the Houston locals, while the Space Center Houston, home of NASA, is a space enthusiast’s dream – and the only place in the world where you can discover how it felt to be in Mission Control when astronaut Jack Swigert said: “Houston, we’ve had a problem.”

With more than 11,000 restaurants that cater to every possible taste, it’s no surprise Houstonians dine out often. Prepare your taste buds for some of the best food, and biggest portions, in Texas.

What to do in Houston

Stroll around Buffalo Bayou Park

If you fancy some fresh air or simply need to walk off some of that Texas home-cooking, head for Buffalo Bayou Park. It’s a sprawling green space, filled with green trails for walking, running and biking that has the slow moving Buffalo Bayou river running through it. Plus, it has great views of downtown Houston, especially at sunset.

Become a cowboy at Texas Junk Co

Texas Junk Co is an authentic cowboy pit stop – a local institution selling more than 1,000 pairs of real, vintage cowboy boots. Even if you’re not in the market for boots, the old-fashioned store with original horse-hitching posts is not to be missed.

Where to eat in Houston

Cajun Stop (Cajun/Creole)

Houston is famous for its Cajun and Creole cooking, bringing a little taste of Louisiana to the Lone Star State, which means po-boys (a sub sandwich) and seafood. Cajun Stop serves comfort food with a New Orleans twist amid a Mardi Gras atmosphere, with jazz music and old-fashioned pecan pie.

Houston: Food City

Texas has more to offer than barbecue, as Chaney Kwak discovers in Houston – a city where the food scene is flourishing. At night and on weekends, once commuters ebbed to the suburbs, downtown Houston used to be no-man’s land. In the past two years, however, the historic Market Square Park area has come alive with outdoor restaurants, smart bars and live music venues – led by youthful energy, brimming with innovative ideas, and appreciated by Houstonians of all stripes Read more Houston: Food City

Houston - Hotels, Restaurants, Bars and Galleries

They say that everything is bigger in Texas, and Houston is no exception. The sprawling city covers more turf than some US states, and the diversity of places to go and things to do is proportional to its massive scale. Visitors to Texas’ largest city will find relaxed cowboy culture, alongside sophisticated, metropolitan cool. Houston’s bars and restaurants rank among America’s best, while its excellent museums mean there’s equal time for cultural pursuits as well as down-home relaxation Read more Houston - Hotels, Restaurants, Bars and Galleries
