    Excellent representation of Houston's history told through the medium of historic structures that depict how Houstonians lived during different eras. Our guide was a blast.

    Well nice people and good to know about history, except, it's not real. The houses have been moved from other locations and it have been modified.

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
