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

Tour the Downtown Tunnel System

Beneath Houston lie seven miles of tunnels with access to hundreds of coffee shops, restaurants, stores and florists. There are plenty of walking tours available to stop visitors getting lost in the sprawling labyrinth. Urban Adventures start and finish their tours at Café Express.

Get eccentric with Art Cars

Houston almost beats Austin for the honour of being Texas’ most eccentric city. Time your visit for the Orange Show to see the Art Car Parade (if you miss it, head to the Art Car Museum). If that’s not quirky enough, check out David Adickes’ studio, filled with giant sculptures of all the American presidents’ heads.

Get cultured in the theatre district

More than nine million people a year visit downtown Houston’s cultural district for ballet, opera, classical music and the city’s 19 museums. Plus there’s the famous Rothko Chapel, a Zen minimalist chapel dedicated to meditation and the work of acclaimed artist Mark Rothko.

Where to eat in Houston

Oxheart (Modern American)

The tiny Oxheart restaurant seats only 30 people and champions locally grown produce on the veggie-heavy mains. Chef Justin Yu is well travelled and draws on Flemish influences as well as other parts of the US in his menu. The soundtrack to dinner comes from a retro vinyl collection.

The Pass & Provisions (Modern American)

Caracol (Mexican)

This glamorous, airy restaurant offers sophisticated dining with a menu focused on seafood dishes from the 16 coastal states of Chef Hugo Ortega’s native Mexico.
