Houston's an easy place to get into, lots of cowboy things and generally an easy pace of life.

Things you must do

  1. Visit the Galleria Shopping centre (with an indoor Ice Rink)
  2. Have a Texan meal (lots of beans, meat and more meat)
  3. Go to the Houston Space Centre
  4. Try and go to Galveston (not tried myself but everyone says it's nice)

Booking strongly recommended or expect an average 30 minute wait (and you get a little bleeper thing so you can look in the Galleria shops while you wait for your table. cool.gif (111 bytes)cool.gif (111 bytes)
