Houston: A Perfect Weekend Getaway


Exterior photos of Houston museums and shops

It's no surprise that Houston looked amazing during the Super Bowl LI festivities. With world-class museums, shopping, fine dining, and a legendary BBQ history, America's fourth largest city is a perfect weekend getaway.

While you're shopping, eating and catching a show, don't forget to also see three of Houston's premiere art and cultural institutions:  The Menil Collection, The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and the Museum of Natural Science Houston.
