The Bayou City is the largest city in Texas and the Southern U.S., covering an expansive 665 square miles. And thanks to its large size, there’s no shortage of activities and entertainment options.
While famous attractions like the Space Center Houston and Minute Maid Park are worth visiting during a Houston vacation, there’s also an endless array of lesser-known, equally entertaining crowd-pleasers. Visitors can float down a Texas-shaped lazy river or tour a European-style castle, all within a 70-mile drive from downtown.
