Compare Car rental in Houston
Houston is a huge city that never fails to make an impression. It is a city of superlatives - it has one of the largest urban populations (2.3 million), with the vastest expanse of parks, and its population consumes the greatest amount of food in the whole country! Houston really lives up to the saying that “everything is bigger in Texas.”
To really get a feel for the city, it’s recommended that you drive when in Houston, as places can be a little spread out. You can book your Houston car rental in advance with Enjoy Travel, with prices starting from as low as $34.46 USD per day.
Guide to Houston
The summers can get swelteringly hot so be prepared for extreme heat and humidity, as temperatures can sometimes exceed 100ºF. On the flip side, Houston is an excellent place to visit during the winter because you might be able to spend your Christmas in a tee and shorts. From June to November, the city sometimes sees storms and hurricanes so pack a handy raincoat just in case.
As Houston is a large city, it might be difficult to see everything in a few days, which is why we recommend picking a neighborhood to explore while you're there. For a historical small-town feel, head to The Heights for specialist boutiques and quirky coffee shops. Downtown is excellent for a night out as most restaurants and bars are concentrated there. If hippie, bohemian vibes are more your thing, then Montrose is where you'd find the vintage shops and piercing parlors. It is also the heart of Houston's LGBT culture. For upscale shopping, head to Uptown and The Galleria.
What to do in Houston
Visit the city’s parks and museums
TStart your morning with fresh air at Memorial Park, which is larger than New York's Central Park. As the day warms up, take shade at some of the city's best museums at the Houston Museum District, which includes the popular Museum of National Science and the unconventional National Museum of Funeral History. If you're looking for 'gram-worthy street art, drive or take a cab over to the East End - which also hosts an excellent street market on Sundays - or traverse through Discover Green and nearby Buffalo Bayou Park. As the sun goes down, catch a show at Houston's famous Theatre District.
Catch a game
Home to six professional sports teams, then Houston's gotcha covered if you love sports! Pre-game with a tailgating party at NRG Stadium before watching the Houston Texans play. At Minute Maid Park, you'll find the Houston Astros, a major league baseball team. Basketball fan? Head over to see the Houston Rockets at Clutch City.
See more of Houston with a CityPass
If you think you'll be hitting up multiple attractions, consider getting the Houston CityPass, which grants entry to most major museums, art galleries, zoos, art galleries, and even the Space Center.
Eating out in Houston
The culinary scene in Houston is there to go big or go home. Get your caffeine fix at Retrospect Coffee Bar before fueling up for the day at The Breakfast Klub or Baby Barnaby's. For lunch, stop by the Fat Bao for some delicious, fluffy bao or Tacos Tierra Caliente (cash only) or El Taconazo for those infamous tex-mex flavors. Wrap up the day with a hearty meal at Peli Peli, a South African fan favorite.
Getting to and from Houston, airports and transport connections
Getting around Houston
The SuperShuttle connects the two major airports (HOU and IAH) with the CBD. Within the city, a single trip on the buses cost $1.25 and they only accept exact change, but they are available 24 hours a day. Each neighborhood is also very walkable. Car rental is a popular option as the buses and metrorail do not go everywhere in this vast city.
