So You're Traveling To Houston?!
If you are coming any time between April & October, chances are the temperature will be either warm, or extremely hot! Therefore, it is perfectly acceptable in most places around town to wear a short-sleeved shirt, short pants, and either sneakers or flip-flops, unless of course you are going to be going to a special event that requires a certain type of dress. It also rains quite frequently here during summer days, so an umbrella comes in handy often. During the winter months, especially December & January, a cold front can come through and make it fairly chilly, so a jacket and pants would definately be needed. But generally speaking, Houston has a sub-tropical climate: Hot summers, mild winters. But at any time the weather can change here, so always keep that in mind! Have a camera on you, you never know what you might see that can turn into a photo opportunity! :) If you plan on making a trip down to Galveston to hit the beach, make sure to bring proper beach attire, sunblock, and even a change of clothes. Many beaches have locker rooms to clean off and change clothes. Well, I would say if you could pack a car, then do it! But if you are not driving to Houston, it might be a good idea to look into renting a car if you plan on doing various things in different locations around town. The city is very spread out, and most everyone in this city has a car, and there is a lot of traffic here to show for it!
This is a pretty decent nightclub which plays a good mixture of music including 80's, pop, and current hip hop and r&b hits. I don't know, I just made sure I was dressed nice. I wore jeans and a nice dress shirt with boots and they let me in the club.
The BEST Mexican and Fast Food
This place is an authentic Mexico City taco joint. It is tastefully decorated, and the food is high quality and quickly prepared. You can have authentic marinated pork (al pastor), barbacoa, 'tinga' - very spicy barbacoa, version of arrachera steak taco. You can also specify a quesadilla, which is a taco with piece of melted Chihahua cheese inside. Excellent food! And they have also Jarritos. Quesadilla de tinga.
Seymour Lieberman Exercise Trail
The Seymour Lieberman Exercise Trail, with its 2.93-mile crushed granite and packed-earth jogging trail, attracts droves of Houstonians intent on getting in their daily run. Exercise stations can be found along the trail with a workout station located close to the tennis center. The trail is lighted and has restrooms and water fountains along the way.
A .25-mile asphalt timing track allows runners to work on speed and develop their running skills. It is located across from the tennis center.
Additional multi-use trails located on the south side of Memorial Drive give hikers, bikers, skaters and equestrians a choice of trails to choose from.
