Travelers to Space City aren’t likely to be bored or disappointed. The city of Houston continues to attract visitors with its eclectic vibe and southern charm. Peppered with a dynamic array of restaurants, music venues, museums and sports stadiums, the city provides a load of entertainment and recreational activities, and makes them available practically any time of day. We invite you to get to know other guests of Wanderlust by taking part in our walking tours or Food Truck Fridays.

Music Venues

Country? Of course. R&B? You know it. Classic Rock? C’mon now. While you’re at it you might as well throw, hip-hop, ska, punk, classical and even a fusion of any of the above the the mix as Houston is sure to deliver your personal favorites. As a south Texas cultural hub, Houston hardly lacks for any kind of live music performance. To be honest, we’re pretty darn proud of the live music culture here and point to its variety of outstanding venues as proof of our ability to rival any American city for musical prowess.

Outdoor Recreation

With mild temperatures year-round, nearby parks, regional beaches and ample opportunities to fish, hike, swim, bike and what-have-you, Houston more than delivers on its promise of outdoor recreation. For the adventure-seeker in you, check out the many adrenalin-pumping must-do’s, including Soar in the Sky, Wave Action or Fastfall.

Food & Drink

Whether you’re hoping to partake of award-winning cuisine by some of the world’s top chefs or looking for those hidden gems that are popular with the locals, Houston is ripe with opportunities to indulge. The fact is, when you’re home to more than 10,000 restaurants, the competition for diners’ return business is ridiculously fierce, making for some dining and drinking experiences that aren’t likely to be forgotten once you get back home. With dozens of restaurants and bars within walking or biking distance of Wanderlust Houston, you’ll be able to indulge in your favorite cuisines without having to eat the same thing twice.


Look, you didn’t come to Houston to politely visit the Space Center and get to bed at a reasonable hour. There’s a part of you (a huge part of you) that came to party. And party you will. From the city’s most electrifying dance clubs, to rockin honky tonks or fan-fueled sports bars, you and your friends are sure to find a place that welcomes you with open arms. Or at least a couple of shots. Again, as a Wanderlust guest, you’ll be able to enjoy a number of clubs and bars without even having to worry about getting an uber ride.

From museums to nightclubs, from dog parks to live music venues, we encourage you to take full advantage of what Houston has to offer.
