Offbeat Houston Attractions

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

For an entertainment megaplex, go to Bayou Place in the theater district. This complex, situated on over three acres of land, 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 attractions.

For a rare shopping encounter, go over to Galleria Mall. It is one of the biggest malls in the state, and caters to the "upscale" shopper. Anchor shops include Nordstrom's, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Macy's, as well as a assortment of smaller, specialty retailers 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 style that defines this mall.

The Museum District deserves to be pointed out here as well. Even though many people today are familiar with the famous Fine Arts and Natural History Museums, there are a variety of others in this same location that are equally spectacular and worth a visit. The nearby McGovern Health Museum, for example, 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 most significant tragedies in history.
