What to do in Houston
Famous as the home of NASA's Space Center, the launchpad of humankind's desire to learn about what the universe around us holds, Houston is a city light years ahead of most when it comes to things to see and do. You'll find rich heritage on every corner of this great American city, a place drenched in the arts and culture just as it is in fine restaurants and street eats. This unique destination is one that deserves to be explored fully, and there's no better way than by rental car.
As you drive into Houston, you won't be able to miss the imposing JP Morgan Chase Tower. At over 305 metres in height, this monolith offers great views of the city from its 60th floor - the Sky Lobby's observation deck is not for those that suffer vertigo!
Get your feet firmly back on the ground at the sprawling George Bush Park. You'll find lakes, forests, cycling tracks and fitness equipment across over 3,000 hectares of grassland - you could wander for a week and still find something new.
Looking for a cold brew? You won't find one at the Beer Can House, but you will find a home decorated in thousands of the things - well worth driving by!
