Best Time To Go
A near-coastal city with a mild, tropical climate, Houston is lush and green almost year-round. For a uniquely Texas experience, the acclaimed Rodeo takes place each March, while in April, the world’s largest Art Car Parade draws the crowds, too.
Cars reign in Houston, and enjoying all there is to see is hard without a rental, though there is an efficient metro rail and city buses ($3 for a day pass). Neighborhoods like downtown, the Galleria, and the Museum District are easily walkable.
July is the hottest month, with an average high of 94°F (34°C). January is the coldest month, with an average high of 62°F (16°C).
Know Before You Go
Famous for its record humidity, Houston’s spring and summer months can feel much warmer than they are. The city also is an international arts destination, and most museums are free on Thursdays.
