When you’re done with city life, hit the open road and discover more of the Lone Star State...
Houston is the biggest city in Texas, which is the biggest state in continental USA. So you are probably going to end up with a big car when you explore this city of big hats and bigger attitudes. Don’t worry - the roads here are equally large and generally straight and easy to navigate. There’s no lack of signposts either, though satnav is a wise investment. You can book one with your hire car if you wish.
It doesn't matter whether you're staying in Houston or travelling around the area, a hire car will improve the experience of your stay a great deal. You could head down the coast to Corpus Christi, north for a trip to Dallas, or west to San Antonio, home of the historic Alamo, all of which are within a four-hour drive by car.
If you’re looking for a dose of Texan culture, combine a trip to Houston with a few nights in Dallas and nearby Fort Worth. It takes just short of four hours to reach Dallas from Houston, so most visitors book a hotel in Dallas for a few nights to really soak up the unique atmosphere of this arty and historic city. If you fancy popping on a Stetson and getting to grips with cattle ranching, check out Fort Worth and the surrounding areas.
Day trips from Houston are also possible to destinations such as Galveston, the area’s beaches, and some of the nature reserves of the Gulf Coast. The coastal city of Galveston (just try not to sing the Glen Campbell song of the same name – it’s not possible!) is 75 minutes from Houston by road. The remarkable collection of 19th-century architecture makes Galveston worth a visit, as do the city’s beaches. Other notable urban beaches include those at La Porte and Kemah (both within a 45-minute drive of Houston).
