All the talk about and around Houston these days involves the Super Bowl to be played here Sunday.
Downtown Super Bowl Center is alive with activity and thousands gather to participate in the goings on and, perhaps, spot a celebrity or two.
From what I see and hear there is something for everyone be it art or live performances.
As exciting as all this is, there’s more to this big city than Super Bowl activities, and, hopefully, visitors will have opportunity to take some of it in.
Houston is a city of bayous designed for drainage, but they are also becoming sources for outdoor activity. Buffalo Bayou is the largest, and it has recently undergone significant change.
These days folks can hike and bike, kayak
or take a scenic boat ride on the bayou.
For sure, visitors will find lots of good eats in Houston as it is one of the country’s best foodie cities with cuisines for every palate. One could eat here for a very long time without having to go to the same restaurant twice.
A don’t miss is TexMex. It doesn’t get any better than at any one of the many Mexican restaurants here.
For quieter moments, a visit to one of Houston’s outstanding museums is a delight
as is a stroll through a nearby park.
As I think about it, there’s much that Houston has to offer, but with the emphasis on football some visitors may not get an opportunity to experience it. Come Sunday, if I open the windows it just might be possible to hear the noise of the crowd cheering for a favorite team. For a few thousand dollars I could be there, too, but I’ll be watching on TV with plenty of chips and queso handy.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
