As a Houston native, it is your duty to give your guests a grand tour of your city when they arrive! Whether they are an essential figure in your company, your prickly mother-in-law, or an old friend, we all feel the pressure to impress our guests with sights they can’t see elsewhere. Today, we are sharing with you the top locations to impress guests in Houston.
While you could certainly drive your guests around yourself, you can impress them even more by booking a car service Houstoncompany for the day. Not only will it free you from playing tour guide while dealing with traffic, or potentially getting lost, but it adds an air of class and intrigue that will make your adventure tour even more memorable. If your guests have absolutely any interest in space, science, or history, the Space Center Houstonis a must-see! As a learning center with over 400 things to see and do, the most extensive collection of spacesuits and moon rocks on public display in the world, and special events occurring frequently, this destination should be at the top of your list. Waterwall Parkis an iconic Houston landmark that pictures do not do justice to. We recommend stopping by here as a place to take a quiet stroll and rest between events. Spanning 2.77 acres, the park features 186 live oaks as well as the famous Waterwall. The 64-foot-high semi-circular water wall has surfaces of black obsidian aggregate that make the water sparkle as it crashes down at a rate of 11,000 gallons per minute. It is a sight to behold that you simply can’t let your guests miss. Houston is proud to share its Museum District. Featuring 19 museums and four walkable zones, it would take days, if not weeks, to see everything. We recommend speaking with your guest and choosing just one or two of the museums to explore on this trip, as you don't want to burn your guests out by trying to visit them all. Whether they choose the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Natural Science, or even the Holocaust Museum, they will leave in awe. If your guests aren’t used to the Texas heat, they will positively melt when visiting in the summer. We recommend providing them with some high-class relief by taking them to the rooftop Texas-shaped lazy river at the Marriott Marquis Houston. Heated to a comfortable 80 degrees, your guests can cool off in style, grab a cocktail on the pool deck, and relax the afternoon away. To get access to the pool, we suggest booking a room or buying a day pass. If your guest appreciates eclectic mom-and-pop shops that offer vintage clothing, handmade jewelry, antiques, and other odd collectibles, this is the place to go. While it may not appear "fancy," 19th streetis the lifeblood of its community and is an excellent way for visitors to get an authentic taste of local craftsmanship, cuisine, and music.
