Houston honestly has so much to offer! It’s hard to be able to see it all in one week, let alone just one weekend. I’ve lived here since elementary school, not counting a couple of years I was out for college, but even now it’s truly hard to see EVERYTHING.
I love that about HOUSTON because you can truly be bored unless you just don’t know where to look. Well, we help with that at UNATION // Stuff to Do in Houston and we love showing you all the fun things this city has to offer.
📸 Houston Botanic Garden
For the first time, Houston Botanic Garden will have a spectacular light display for the holidays! They will be hosting the internationally known and acclaimed Lightscape! These light displays will be unique to Texas and are created by local and international artists to create a magical winter wonderland.
Lightscape at the Houston Botanic Garden will mix crowd favorites like the Winter Cathedral and new installations unique to Houston. Tickets need to be purchased ahead of time as well as parking for the date you plan to attend.
