Houston travel tips

1) Do not bring a lot of personal belongings to Numbers night club in Houston

You are unlikely to sit in one place at Numbers night club in Houston when the greatest hits of the 80s and 90s sound. There are no lockers to leave your staff in while dancing on the floor. Do not take a lot of them.

2) Dive into the history of holocaust in Houston

The Holocaust Museum in Houston has pretty creepy-crawling exhibtions of Nazi Germany's terrifying rise to power. This museum will also tell you the stories about the lives of Houston-connected European Jews. Adults have to pay $12, children up to 11 enter for free.

3) Purchase a vinyl even for $2 at Cactus Music in Houston

Cactus Music on 2110 Portsmouth Street in Houston is a must for music buffs. Selling both new and secondhand music stuff, sometimes they have good deals for used vinyls for only $2. Here you will find rare indie music editions.
