Holiday In Houston

Starch your denim and tease your bangs: You’re headed to South Texas. 
Your Houston holiday will be filled with contradictions of the best kind. Old money is everywhere, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a restaurant where folks aren’t in sandals. The city is also a centre of commerce and art, yet locals are all too happy to spend their weekend at the rodeo. Since Houston is sprawling, you won’t run out of things to do. Whether you want to explore high-end galleries or down-to-earth barbecue joints, the city doesn’t disappoint. Thanks to lax zoning laws, you can find a little bit of everything on the same block (picture tattoo shops near world-famous gardens and science exhibits). If the city sounds like a wild rides, we say “Buy a ticket”. In fact, purchase a Houston package from lastminute.com.au.

Things to Do in Houston

OK, so you booked your trip to Houston and now you can’t stop thinking about plaid shirts and restaurants where patrons chuck peanut shells with abandon. But have a little faith—there’s more to Space City than that! Start your holiday with a trip to the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH), then take a walk through history with an excursion at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. In the mood to get cultured? Spend your evening at the Houston Grand Opera. This company is well on its way to EGOT status, with Emmy, Tony and Grammy awards under its belt.

What, seeing Houston at street level isn’t good enough for you? Well, fine. You’ll just have to explore the city’s underground tunnel system on a guided tour, then head to the 60th floor of the Chase Tower. You know that money you saved booking one of our cheap Houston holiday packages? Spend it on an Old Houston pub tour.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Shopping is an Olympic sport in Houston, and you can earn the gold at the Galleria. This champion of the Houston retail landscape is no stranger to designer duds. If you’d rather forgo brand names for boutique charm, Uptown Park is available to give you your style fix. Since you booked one of our cheap Houston packages, you deserve a little spending splurge.

Houston is the fourth most populated city in the U.S., so it has lots of people to feed. That means—you guessed it—food for days. Carnivores rejoice: Steak is its own food group here. But don’t forget that Houston is near the coast, so stone crab and fresh fish is almost always on the menu.

Downtown, Uptown, Montrose and Rice Village. When it comes to Houston nightlife, take your pick. You’re bound to have some Texas-sized fun no matter where you end up. If you stay up until dawn, a tip of the cowboy hat to you.

What’s Next?

Book your holiday in Houston today, and you’ll be “Yee-Hawing” with the best of them. You may show up in loafers, but we’d be shocked if you didn’t leave wearing a set of cowboy boots. Pro Tip: Don’t try to wear spurs on the plane. And hey, here’s a word from the wise—grab a Houston car hire so you won’t miss out: Remember, places like the NASA Space Station are a bit of a trek if you don’t have your own set of wheels.

Hotels in Houston

With such a great range, you shouldn't have too many issues securing your hotel in Houston (in fact, we reckon it'll be a breeze!) lastminute.com.au currently offers more than 90 places to hit the hay.

Shoestring travellers can relax. Budget rooms await at the Sleep Inn & Suites Near Downtown North and the Quality Inn & Suites NRG Park - Medical Center. These digs are proof that excellent service doesn't need to cost an arm and a leg. But if luxury is what you're after, The St. Regis Houston or the Four Seasons Hotel Houston will do the trick.
