Places to see in Houston

 It seems we find ourselves in Houston just about every year. Either to visit family or to catch a flight to Europe or the Middle East.  When we stop by we usually spend a day or two, it’s a good place to rest between long flights.

That’s why I’m always looking for new places to see and things to do in Houston.  Recently I found many interesting places to see in Houston.

I doubt we’ll have time to do them all, but we’ll certainly try to do some special Halloween activities, maybe even one of the Ghost Tours.

Here are some places to see in Houston to help you plan your next Houston getaway!
