Sam’s Limousine shares the Best of H-Town
There’s no doubt that Houston is a college town.
With a huge student population in town, Houston is the best place for the ultimate college experience.
The University of Houston alone has 37,000 students and counting! That’s a lot of new friends to make and a lot of adventure to find. First-year students aren’t required to live on campus either, so getting together is that much easier.
College life will always offer the traditional house and frat parties, but Houston has so much more to offer students.
When exploring your downtown tour of Houston, make sure not to miss the Beer Can House! See the work of a local man who spent nearly two decades reconstructing his property with beer cans, bottles, and tops.
Take a date to James Turrell Skyspace for an experience like none other at the Suzanne Deal Booth Centennial Pavilion. Rice University added this innovative feature in 2012, a two-level pyramid that is expressly designed to offer unparalleled music, light, and sound. The breathtaking LED light sequence offers a 45-minute sunrise and sunset progression unlike anything you have ever seen. It’s free but does require a reservation!
Courtesy of Moody Center for the ArtsThe Waugh Bridge is impressive on its own, but at night, visitors get an extra thrill from some very special, and very unexpected, residents. Years ago, a colony of Mexican free-tailed bats created a home within the bridge, and now they are a regular sight from the Waugh Bridge viewing platform.
Budding architects may already know about the Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern, but this secret underground gem is a marvel to students, tourists, and residents alike. Explore the underground water reservoir from older days. It’s a unique perspective of our bustling city that so few get to see!
For a naval tour of the city, jump on the free boat tour courtesy of the Port of Houston. For 90 minutes, you can explore the seaport and hear its history while ocean freighters come and go. Feel the breeze and smell the salty air in a temporary reprieve from the chaotic city streets!
Houston is a proud city, and there are a number of festivals and special events that take place throughout the year in celebration.
Culture is largely celebrated here, and it shows! The Houston Greek Festival comes to town every October, with the Houston Italian Festival kicking off just a week after. The Texas Lunar New Year takes place in February, and the Japan Festival Houston lands in April. June brings both Carnival and Caribbean Heritage Month.
The World Championship BBQ Content takes place in February, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo runs through March, Comicpalooza in May, Pride Houston in June, and the Freedom over Texas Festival will continue again on July 4th this year.
Houston is full of special events each week; it’s simply a matter of where you would like to go.
Festivals are undoubtedly fun, but what about those off nights when the town is a little quieter?
Miller Outdoor Theatre is always featuring fresh, new events throughout the year, making it a fun (and free!) place to hang out.
When cabin fever gets you, the Discovery Green is the answer to all of your needs. There’s art to peruse, vendors to shop, and lake activities. There are also special events like fitness classes, outdoor movies, and incredible festivals. During the holidays, enjoy the outdoor ice skating rink!
The Truck Yard’s casual vibe is a favorite for its ping pong, live music, and dog-friendly grounds. Be sure to stop by the Okra Charity Saloon for a good cause – all purchases benefit their delegated charity of the month.
