Houston is a city of Southern hospitality, cosmopolitan flair, Old West charm and modern sophistication. Houston offers a wealth of culture and attractions. Houston’s Museum and Theater Districts are full of wonder and entertainment. Houston attractions include exciting amusement parks to natural parks and museums. There is an outstanding collection of world-class museums, arts, amusement parks, professional sports, fine dining, and outstanding night clubs all in one place.
New Orleans is a happy, high-spirited city with the pulsing beat of Dixieland jazz. It delights visitors with its riverboats, Creole cuisine, quaint antique shops and narrow streets of the French Quarter. While here, be sure to take a ride on one of the picturesque trolley cars. Eccentric, elegant New Orleans is strongly connected to both the Mississippi River and the South, but its identity remains aloof from any regional or even national affiliation. It reminds some visitors of European cities, in part because French and Spanish colonial architecture adds an Old World backdrop to some streets. But the feeling of foreignness goes deeper: The celebrated New Orleans atmosphere, cuisine, music, traditions and lifestyle are rooted in an embrace of the decadent and assimilation of the unconventional. New Orleans welcomes all, but is familiar to none, and the result is a city which attracts the romantic, the spiritual, the wild and the inquisitive—all while successfully promoting itself as corporate America’s playground. No matter what is expected from a visit to New Orleans, no one goes home disappointed.
Austin is a city of Southern hospitality, cosmopolitan flair, Old West charm and modern sophistication. The food is just about the best in the state, with every cuisine represented, and the city's outdoor attractions are no less than superb, with the river widening into a series of long lakes. Austin has a never ending array of things to see and do. There is an outstanding collection of world-class museums, arts, amusement parks, recreational activities, fine dining, and outstanding night clubs. Austin is also the home of country music in Texas, the city where Willie Nelson and Doug Sahm got their start. There is a thriving music scene in the city, with almost every style of contemporary music available.
San Antonio has something to offer everyone. The city is filled with an array
of attractions, from nightly entertainment to historical site visits, shopping,
sporting events and museums.
