Characterized as an “urban sprawl” by many who come to experience its pulsating vibes, Houston is the largest city in the state of Texas and the fourth largest in the nation. There are so many sights to see and most of it can be enjoyed for a small fee or even for free.
Public transportation like the metro and the bus are good options since fares are cheap. But for added convenience, the best way to crisscross the city streets is by renting a car. You can also get around with rideshare apps like Lyft and Uber.
There are tons of cheap hotels that are located in strategic areas. When considering your hotel we suggest looking at locations near the sights you would like to see.
