Houston is a fantastic place for shopping, especially the hip boutiques in the Westheimer and Dunlavy districts.

Generations of investment in the arts have created world-class institutions, such as the Houston symphony, ballet, and opera, along with many great galleries and museums. The Museum of Fine Arts hosts big-budget exhibits of visiting works from around the world, and the theater scene is booming: in fact, it’s considered to run a close second to New York City. Grab a show at the Alley Theatre for some world-class entertainment.

If the simplicity of nature is more your style, Houston’s Audubon Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary is 17.5 acres of peaceful wooded bliss, right in the middle of the city.
