Top 10 Best Things About Houston

While visiting Houston, there seems to be 100’s of things to do, and business travel leaves a very limited amount of time in which to do them.  In addition to providing Houston furniture rental, Corporate Furniture Leasing would like to help you navigate the best places to visit while in Houston.

1.      Bayou Place

Bayou Place is a huge entertainment complex that houses theaters, bars, and restaurants.  Think of it as an amusement park for adults.  In addition, it’s the home of Houston’s Sundance film festivals, so at the right time of year, you can see independent films and dine at fantastic restaurants, all at the same place.

2.      Space Center Houston

The Space Center Houston is the official visitor’s site for NASA’s center for human spaceflight activities.  It holds not only theaters, movies, and a tram tour of the space center, but also the Mercury 9 capsule, the Gemini 5 capsule, the Apollo 17 command module, the Saturn V, and much more.  This center is perfect for the explorer in all of us.

3.      Houston Zoo

The Houston Zoo is known for its interactive and educational exhibits.  The Zoo’s emphasis on conservation and protection of animals does not in any way diminish the experiences it has to offer.  Whether it’s feeding giraffes, talking to animal keepers, or behind the scenes tours, you’ll find something to make you smile.

4.      Downtown Aquarium

Much more than just looking at fish, the Downtown Aquarium offers rides, restaurants and bars, a fully equipped ballroom, and over 200 species of aquatic life.  The six-acre attraction is so elegant, they often host weddings and other events.  For a little adventure, ride a train through the center of the shark tank.

5.      The Menil Collection

More than just a simple museum, the Menil Collection expands throughout nearby streets and communities.  The streets are littered with pieces of art, and even the bungalow style residences have been painted to reflect the artistic nature of the area.  There are several building which house breathtaking art, including the Cy Twombly Gallery, the Dan Flavin Installation, and the Museum Building itself.

6.      Children’s Museum of Houston

For both the young and young-at-heart, the Children’s Museum offers 14 galleries of interactive fun.  From an invention shop to a high-tech chase after an evil hacker, there’s plenty of opportunity to learn and play simultaneously.

7.      Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

This museum comprises not just one central artistic location, but also a sculpture garden, a movie theater, two art schools, two house museums and much more.  Exploring all the art here could take significantly more than a single visit.

8.      Museum of Natural Science

With a multitude of exhibits, one of which currently includes two breathtaking Faberge eggs, this museum allows its visitors to answer questions they didn’t even know they had.  For a bit more spunk, visit the museum during one of its special event dance parties and mixers.

9.      Minute Maid Park

A true sports fan can’t miss an opportunity to view this classic park.  Watching the Astros is a great release after a long work week, but the park offers more than that.  Their elegant spaces cater to business meetings, and they host daily tours for a behind-the-scenes look at the stadium.

10.  Hermann Park

Hermann Park is a gorgeous 445-acre urban park that is visited annually by around six million people.  With jogging trails, a Japanese garden, pedal boats, and even a train, it’s no wonder it has attracted so much attention from residents and visitors alike.
