Houston travel tips

1) Feel like a character from “Jurassic Park” at the Houston Museum of Natural Science in Houston

Once you enter the Houston Museum of Natural Science on 5555 Hermann Park Dr in Houston, you can not help but notice lifelike robotic dinosaurs that make you feel as if you are in “Jurassic Park”. Except for this, it also hosts astronomy, Native American culture, paleontology, Texas wildlife, and more.

2) Show your bravery to try an oxtail in Houston

Located on 3101 Main Street in Houston, Saigon House may offer an oxtail for brave hearts. If you are not so crazy about new things, indulge yourself with the filet mignon pho. It is all about Vietnam cuisine, since Houston has the second-largest Vietnamese population in the U.S.

3) Budget-conscious tourists may stay in East End in Houston

East End, or also known as Eado, is a great and relatively young district in Houston. Since the METRORail train line extended into the area, it has become a popular area with affordable accomodation. Here you will find lower prices, but equal to Downtown conditions. Check out unofficially dubbed “Graffiti Park,” a multi-block span where local artists express themselves.
