A Story By

As the weather warms up and summer peeks around the corner, you know Downtown Houston will be heating up once again! Downtown Houston remains home to some of our favorite spots to eat, drink, and take in the sunshine. One night on Main Street proves the neighborhood reigns supreme in creating a welcoming party vibe!

Still, every Houstonian knows – getting around Downtown Houston isn’t always the easiest! From traffic to parking, it could even the most dedicated adventurer some time to make it to all of their favorite downtown venues.

The alternative? An electric scooter or bike rental!

Electric scooters or bikes take the hassle out of getting around Downtown Houston! Simply zoom down the block to your next favorite spot, or explore the neighborhood without worrying about traffic or figuring out where to park!

We’ve teamed up with Glyderz Houston to share some of our favorite spots on or neat Main St. to visit on a scooter or bike:

Glyderz Houston is the first electric scooter rental company to offer services in Houston! Since 2020, they’ve been offering a generous selection of quality electric scooters and bikes to interested parties in the Downtown Houston area.

By offering scooter and bike rentals, Glyderz aims to change the way Houstonians enjoy the beautiful scenery of Downtown Houston! Scooter and bike rentals offer a safe, reliable alternative to public or common transportation, like cars or Ubers. 

Upon entering the Glyderz headquarters, you’ll be greeted with a friendly & helpful staff who will confirm your reservations and equip you with a fully charged scooter or bike! From there it’s go time – you’re free to explore the neighborhood!

Your first stop?

You can find this “casual Tex-Mex” favorite deep in the heart of downtown Houston! 

Known best for (what else?) their tacos, the Lone Star Taco Co boasts a menu full of fresh, homemade ingredients. But you don’t have to stop at the tacos! Try any of their burrito or nacho plates for a delicious Tex-Mex experience. Their open patio is the perfect place to hang with a margarita in the sunshine!

We recommend the Honey Chiptole Pork taco (roasted pork, queso fresco, honey-chipotle sauce) or the “Big Bazoo” Burrito!

Venue Details
📍1001 Texas Ave, Houston, TX 77002

Home to Houston’s best beer selection, the Flying Saucer Draught Emporium is the perfect stop for all beer lovers!

No two Saucer locations are alike, but the downtown location tops our list! From your first steps inside, you’ll have much to see and drink! Visit the bar to take in more than 240 beers made with 100 different brewing styles. Ask their staff if you need help narrowing down the perfect beer for you!

Don’t forget to try any of their Saucer Pies (pizza), or build your own pie with any of their fresh toppings!

Venue Details
📍705 Main Street at Capitol, Houston TX 77002

From the menu, we recommend the brisket tacos, the 1836 beer can chicken, or any of their burgers!

Did you know you can take your electric scooter or bike to Houston’s favorite margarita bar? It’s true!

Choose from over 70 different infused tequilas, fresh juice margaritas, cocktails, and delicious food. Enjoy the vibes inside or travel up to the 3rd floor balcony! You’ll be able to enjoy your drinks with a wonderful view of Downtown.

For a more lowkey vibe, take your scooter or bike down to Discovery Green! 

Exploring this gorgeous, 12-acre park becomes easier than ever with your electric scooter rental! The park has plenty of trails and sidewalks to help you get around, and you’ll be able to park your bikes at any of the available stations.

Lay out in the sun on the plaza, explore the plinth, or take in any of their on-location restaurants, including The Grove or The Lake House.
