The best things to do in Houston range in scope and genre: local museums will cater to the artsy crowd while lovers of Asian cuisine will delight in the city's restaurant scene (the Houston brunch game is also pretty strong). The country's fourth largest city by population is also a haven for space aficionados (the Space Center is here!) and a home to a nationally-recognized outdoor theater productions.
Oh, and don't forget the iconic, rainbow-hued 'Houston Is Inspired' mural—the ultimate Houston souvenir is a photo of you in front of it.
