The city center in downtown Houston

New frontiers in Houston

As one of the most diverse cities in the country, Houston has a lot to offer on many fronts, including fantastic food from every corner of the world, enthralling museums, and beautiful outdoor spaces where you can do everything — enjoy a movie or settle into an al fresco reading room.

Make your way through the largest city in Texas, and bask in the scenery of the nearby Gulf of Mexico and Texas Hill Country.

Houston favorites

Houston is chock full of well-designed green spaces and truly mind-blowing eats, so plan your day trips to properly sample these gems.

Buffalo Bayou Park

This 160-acre park is an impressive respite from the bustling city, and is a beautiful place to rent boats or bikes. You can also tour and see shows in the strange, awesome underground cistern.

Crawfish buffet

Crawfish is no joke in this Gulf-side town. You can’t go wrong with the classic table-top spread with corn cobs, but don’t miss the spicy Viet-Cajun style unique to Houston.

Space Center Houston

At the Space Center, you can not only see a large collection of moon rocks and spaceship exhibits, you can also tour NASA facilities where astronauts train.

Hit the road

Houston is huge and there’s no shortage of attractions and amusements to enjoy, but book a car on Turo and leave the busy city behind to hit the hills, the beach, and other awesome Texas cities.

Mercedes-AMG GT rental on Turo

Galveston

Only an hour out of the city, Galveston is the hot beach spot where locals revel in long seaside days with great BBQ, and even horseback riding.

Austin

Known for its rocking live music scene, it’s worth the three-hour drive to get your dose of Austin weird, more barbeque and bars, and some killer swimming holes.

Brazos Bend State Park

In less than an hour’s drive, you can be hiking or biking in nature at this impressive state park. It’s also home to an observatory where you can stargaze on clear nights.

Best Houston driving roads

Purple squiggle

Farm-to-Market 149

Head north to Montgomery to catch FM 149, which shoots you through the Sam Houston Forest for decent twisties until you’re dropped into the swooping curves of FM 3090.

Highway 59 to Victoria

For views of the truly Texan wide-open range, head west in your Houston car rental alternative and take in the scenic rolling prairies that lead into the historic downtown Victoria.

Highway 288

Head south from Houston to take this scenic road all the way to the coast, or stop off at Brazos Bend State Park for a dose of wildlife and glassy lakes.
