If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Houston is so rich with culture that I must say the first stop is food, we’re going from Ramen to Tex-Mex to the best barbecue that one can find ooh we can’t forget Houston has some of the best places for seafood definitely in crawfish season . We definitely have to show them what Houston has to offer so we’ll definitely going to heat up things up with a little pass around the city skydiving, a couple museums and then after that we’re going to go deeper into the amazing culture and art work around the city . And in the right season at the right time Galveston beach will be a hit it’s just an amazing thing to let night fall let’s go out on a night ride when a slingshot maybe or even a night in the best nightclub atmosphere Houston hands down drinks are appropriate for every occasion.
