We’d never been to Houston so we decided to visit. When we got to Texas we were exhausted so to be honest, we rested a lot and engaged in excessive amounts of self care. Houston is a large city but people are talkative and friendly and the food is good. We loved the amount of fun and family friendly activities that Houston offers. We had so much fun making candles and painting at Pinspiration, a DIY craft workshop https://www.pinspiration.com/locations/houstonheights/ .
The owner was kind and helpful and the workshop is like art and color therapy rolled into one. Houston is just a hop, skip and jump from Las Vegas so we recommend taking a weekend trip. We went to Meow Wolf’ Omega Mart, a trippy interactive art installation during the day and saw Rupaul’s Drag Revue that night. We loved every sleep deprived second and slept for the next two days once we returned Houston.
