How to spend this year's Easter in Houston
 

With its variety of museums, parks, shopping centers and restaurants, Houston is a city worth visiting at any time of the year. In fact, the city was named among the 21 best cities to visit in 2019 in the Bloomberg publication.

Easter is a good time to visit the city if you want to avoid the summer heat. In this guide we present a list of activities that you can enjoy during your visit.

 
Have fun in the city's outdoors
 
You may be surprised at how much green space Houston has between its tall buildings and highways. 

In the center, you will find the Discovery Green park, which besides having art facilities, has very fun activities including a roller skating rink (open until April 21), kayak rentals and live music. Nearby is Buffalo Bayou Park. Enjoy a walk, bike or boat ride and enjoy the nature and art facilities throughout the park. 

Another good option is Levy Park, a park unique for its design that also has activities for the whole family such as yoga classes, zumba, movies for children, and live music. The children's play area has a climbing wall and an area where there are water fountains where children can splash on warm days.

 
Visit some local Museums

In the museum district you will find 19 cultural institutions and museums such as the Museum of Natural Sciences and the Children's Museum that receive more than 8 million visitors each year. 

Do not miss Vincent van Gogh's exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibition that brings together more than 50 masterpieces by one of the most emblematic artists in the art world will be on display until June 27. 

You can also visit the Menil Collection that now has a new building, the Menil Drawing Institute, which is dedicated entirely to the acquisition, study, exhibition, conservation and storage of modern and contemporary drawings.

 
Taste Houston's food diversity

Houston has been recognized for its excellent restaurants, whose kitchens have influences as diverse as the city's population. 

Some options to try are Xochi from award-winning chef James Beard, Hugo Ortega, Georgia James from renowned chef Chris Shepherd, chef Justin Yu's Theodore Rex, and Ninfa's on Navigation. 

Houston has also reached several food outlets such as Finn Hall and Bravery Chef Hall that bring together several restaurants and bars under one roof.

 
Discover Art on wheels!
 
Houston hosts a variety of festivals and special events each year. In April, do not miss the 32nd edition of the Art Car Parade on April 13. 

This parade of cars converted into works of art is one of the most iconic events in Houston. You will have a lot of fun accompanying the thousands of spectators who visit the city to see this exhibition of art on wheels. To celebrate the event, there will be events and parties throughout the weekend starting on April 11.
