Houston Holidays

Urban sprawl meets urban chic

Everything is bigger in Texas, and Houston is no exception.

This cosmopolitan, multi-cultural city epitomises the term ‘urban sprawl’, rambling along the banks of Buffalo Bayou. Spend your days exploring the museums, the shopping scene and the famous Space Centre Houston, before tucking in to some delicious Texan cuisine at a traditional honky-tonk or barbecue joint. Be sure to also head to Gilley’s, Texas’ quintessential cowboy joint, and try your hand at riding the original mechanical bull, El Toro.

See more of Texas in one holiday: visit Dallas, for modern skyscrapers and architecture, or head to Austin for funky bars and a dip in the natural Hot Springs.
