About Houston

Relaxed rodeo town meets culturally attuned Southern US metropolis

The United States' fourth largest city represents a robust, oil and gas rich Texan state powerhouse featuring a raft of Fortune 500 companies and the enthralling beacon of modern aerospace engineering in the form of NASA's Space Center situated just outside of the city in Clear Lake.

Underneath its larger than life exterior, Houston is underpinned by a diverse, multi-cultural population which has given rise to a wealth of cultural and culinary offerings throughout the city. Whether you want to experience a rodeo atmosphere in denim-cladded attire, or sample the Museum District as part of Houston's cultural centre, Houston forever seeks to satiate our greatest curiosities.

Hotels in Houston

Much like the diversity of the city as a whole, Houston's hotel scene ranges from the ability to traverse through sleek, innovative designs of the future in the trendy arts offerings of establishments such as the Hotel ZaZa Houston, where themed suites cater for both business and leisure travellers from a prime Museum District location.

Elsewhere, there exists both comfortable and affordable stays in Northwest Houston, where budget, mid-range and even inn offerings are available to make your spending money go further, while there remains a dazzling variety of well facilitated and recognisable brand hotels in the Downtown area.

Shopping in Houston

Often tagged as the style capital of the South, Houston wears its well aligned badge with pride in its complete array of both designer, vintage and chic wares from several distinct shopping malls and fashion districts throughout the city.

The Galleria represents one of the most popular shopping locations in Houston, incorporating a definitively international shopping experience in its provision of over 350-stores alongside an ice rink, with New York's Fifth Avenue shopping experience as a clear inspiration in the form of headline department stores such and brands ranging from Macy's to Versace.

Food & Drink in Houston

The culinary scene in Houston ranks amongst the finest in the US.

Housing over 10,000 restaurants collectively harnessing the cooking practices of over 70 countries and regional American cuisine, it's not surprising that Houstonians regularly dine out more than the populous of any other American city. Tex-Mex and authentic local cuisine can be enjoyed in droves, although diners wishing to sample Asian, Italian or almost any form of fusion cuisine will also be pleasantly catered towards.

There are also a vast amount of steak houses for meat eaters to savour, including the B&B Butchers & Restaurant (1814 Washington Ave), where visitors can bask in skyline views of the city while enjoying a fine-dining steakhouse and deli experience.

When dining on a budget within the city, Pappas Bar-B-Q is a Texas barbacue staple and homegrown Houston joint which offers up sumptious combination platters at affordable prices.
