With so much to do and see in Houston it can be difficult to decide where to begin, especially if you don’t have much time.
You can easily spend days exploring the many offerings of the Houston Museum District. The attraction showcases 19 museums -- most of which are free to enter to everyday, and all of which have certain free entry times -- all located within a 1.5-mile radius of the Mecon Fountain. Because the area is pedestrian-friendly you won’t need to spend money on transportation, making this not only educational but budget-friendly.
Although a busy city, Houston offers many chances to explore the beauty of the outdoors. Start your day at Hermann Park, a historic 445-acre park with many opportunities for recreation, like fishing at Bob’s Fishing Pier, trekking in Bayou Parkland, strolling through the Garden Center’s 2,500 rose bushes.
