The districts closest to Downtown offer a wide array of choices for visitors. The city has an eclectic arts and museum, vibrant shopping, and has become a popular destination for food lovers.

Airports

Houston is served by two large commercial airports and two regional airports. The large airports include George Bush Intercontinental Airport and William P. Hobby Airport. It is more convenient if you are traveling downtown or south of the city, such as to Galveston.

Climate

Like most of the areas around the US Gulf Coast, the climate of Houston is humid subtropical with plenty of rainfall all year round. The city averages around 50 inches of rain throughout the year, along with high humidity. However, owing to the city’s large area, the weather can vary significantly from one area to another.

Where to Shop

Many of the shopping malls in Houston are located to the west of downtown in Uptown. Prices in Houston can often be lower than in other major American cities.

One of the popular places for shopping in Houston is the Houston Galleria. The Galleria is the largest mall in Texas, and among the top 10 largest malls in the country. In southwest Houston, the Asian bazaar meets American suburb. This amazing area is ideal for both adventure shopping and an exploration into the brave new world of postmodern America.

Where to Eat 

Houston has some very fine dining options, and is recognized as one of the most restaurant-oriented cities in the US. The city boasts of a thriving ethnic restaurant scene, excellent Tex-Mex, classic Texas steakhouses and Gulf Coast seafood, as well as chain restaurants. The epicenter of Houston’s hot and happening fine dining includes the Downtown, Montrose, Midtown, and the Heights (including the Washington Corridor).

While authentic, high quality Mexican food can be found just about anywhere in Houston, you may find the best ethnic dining in West Houston, where you can get everything from Middle Eastern to Ethiopian to Bosnian. The eclectic Mahatma Gandhi District is the place to go for superb Indian and Pakistani cuisine.
