It takes an abundance of energy to be a tourist in the Energy Capital of the World: from the Space Center to the Rothko Chapel to the chock-full Museum District, Houston’s list of attractions is long. Save some time, though, to try at least a few of the city’s big-name restaurants—and when you’ve had a sufficient taste of H-Town, shop ‘til you drop at the Galleria. Where to recover from your spree? Houston also has a lengthy list of top-notch hotels, from chic chains to boutique gems. Sleep in luxury at the Hotel ICON or the Lancaster and be rejuvenated by morning.
