Sports, shopping, and food

Houston is a city made up of loops, with a sprawling road system surrounding its downtown. You'll see Victorian neighborhoods and towering skyscrapers, and enjoy excellent shopping and dining in Rice Village as you tour Houston's hotspots, including The Galleria for the ultimate retail therapy. Foodies will be in heaven at the original Ninfa's Mexican restaurant or grabbing some wings at Frenchy's Chicken. In fact, there are over 10,000 restaurants to choose from in town, with cuisine from over 70 different countries. Among US cities, Houston boasts the highest number of languages spoken after NYC and LA, and the international flair is palpable in this cosmopolitan Texan star. The sports, however, are all-American:  Pick your fav team and sport – it's between the NFL's Houston Texans, MLB's Houstons Astros, NBA's Rockets, or MLS' Dynamo. After this much excitement, cool down with a margarita or get on the dance floor at trendy spots such as South Beach Houston or Club Tropicana to experience the city's friendly vibe. By night, Latin beats fill the air downtown, so be sure to check out the buzzing nightlife before the end of your city trip.
