Offbeat Houston Attractions

Many guests to the city of Houston are familiar with the activities offered to the whole family. Guests often come to check out Johnson Space Center, the Houston Zoo, and the Houston Aquarium. But aside from these well known sights are some lesser known locations that are more than worth the time to visit. If you've been to Houston but not been to any of the locations on this list, you're missing a huge treat, and you need to include them to your itinerary for your next visit.

For an entertainment megaplex, go to Bayou Place in the theater district. This complex, sitting on over three acres of countryside, includes a variety of clubs and bars, theatres, restaurants, and gaming zones to suit your whole family. It contains a Hard Rock Café, Italian Trattoria restaurant, and a movie house complex in addition to its other sights.

For a unique shopping experience, head over to Galleria Mall. It is one of the largest malls in the region, and caters to the "upscale" shopper. Anchor stores include Nordstrom's, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Macy's, as well as a selection of smaller, specialty stores offering the best-known brands. Even if you just want to window shop, you must make it a point to stop by and see the enormity and class that defines this mall.

The Museum District deserves to be pointed out here also. Even though many people are familiar with the famous Fine Arts and Natural History Museums, there are a host of others in this same area that are equally impressive and worth a visit. The close by McGovern Health Museum, for instance, has Houston's only 4-D theatre. The Holocaust Museum, also situated in the district, should be visited by every single traveler to the city as a reminder of one of the biggest tragedies in history.
