What's the best way to get around?

“Car is the best way to get around here Houston is so huge, buses and subways only work if you are in downtown and even that, it's just so hassle to get around this way. bring a car, or rent a car is cheaper method for your transportation. getting a cab or uber can get expensive real quick, especially if you want to go sightseeing.”

DrewLives in Houston

“Avoid 1960 from 7-9 am and 5-7 pm Use the backroad with your google maps to travel to the major highways during the heavy traffic hours.”

JuliusLives in Houston

Your guide to Houston


Southern culture weaves through America’s fourth-largest city, an enormous metropolis that people from around the world call home. From its location on the Gulf of Mexico, it embodies the stereotype of everything being bigger in Texas, while also taking everything slow, as befits its Southern nature. The city is home to Rice University, the University of Houston, and NASA and much of the American space industry, while an exciting culinary scene stems from the many immigrant entrepreneurs. Downtown Houston’s bustling urbanity hosts a variety of professional sports teams, theaters, and live music venues, while suburbs offer slower options, like the greenery of Pearland, or the small-town feel of Sugar Land and Cypress.

When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Houston?

Houston’s spring tends to be pleasant, with average high temperatures in the 70s Fahrenheit and lows in the 50s and the least amount of rain of the year. Winter is a bit cooler, but similarly comfortable. Summer teeters toward extremely hot, with average highs hitting the mid-90s and the lows staying well above 70 degrees, accompanied by significant humidity. The hot weather comes in tandem with the rain — especially in June, which averages more than six inches. Summer also brings hurricane season in Houston, which can bring wild rains until fall — so you should always be aware of the current forecasts when visiting.

What are the top things to do in Houston?

Space Center Houston

The public is invited to explore one of the country’s main training, research, and flight control centers. The giant center offers tram tours, galleries, interactive exhibits, and displays of artifacts that show off the history of human space flight. Moon rocks, simulated capsule rides, and shuttle replicas help you understand space and what’s involved in exploring it.

Buffalo Bayou Park

This 160-acre park is located along a 2.3-mile stretch of the Buffalo Bayou near downtown. You can hike, stroll, bike, or paddle here; boat and kayak rentals are available. Along with traditional park amenities, the space includes a decorative fountain and a bat colony with observation deck, while a dog park, nature play area for kids, and a skate park mean the park has something for everyone.

Houston Museum District

Just outside the city’s downtown core, the Museum District brings together many of Houston’s most important cultural institutions. The walkable neighborhood features 19 institutions, including the Museum of Fine Arts, one of the biggest art museums in the country; a children’s museum; museums that focus on local African-American, Czech, and Asian culture; and a chapel.
