Private jet charter to Houston
Houston is the largest city in Texas and a bustling business hub known as the Energy Capital of America. The city is home to huge oil, banking, and biomedical companies as well as a thriving alternative energy industry and NASA’s Johnson Space Center. However, there’s more to Houston than business, and visitors also come to enjoy the city’s museums, southern-style eateries, gigantic malls, and famous rodeo festivals.
Designed by Renzo Piano, the Menil Collection is housed in a stunning modernist building that is as much a work of art as the 17,000 paintings, sculptures and historical artefacts within its walls. Curated by Dominique and John de Menil, their extensive collection is a must-see for visiting cultural and history enthusiasts. San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site will also have the same level of appeal for history enthusiasts, being the famous 1100 acre park where Texas fought for independence and emerged victorious. After taking in the arts and history of Houston, why not take travel to the outer reaches of space? Head 25 miles southeast of Houston on the west side of Clear Lake, and you’ll find yourself at the Houston Space Center – home of Mission Control. Watch films about space, try on the astronaut helmet and take in the exhibits. There’s even the opportunity to have lunch with an astronaut in the flesh.
But if you don’t experience anything else in Houston, check out its thriving culinary scene, which has been created, nurtured and enjoyed by its diverse population. A creolization of the city has occurred in the last 30 or 40 years as a result of the influx of workers following the boom of the oil and gas and biomedical industries. And a lack of zoning has led to a real sense of multiculturalism, where influences are exchanged almost subconsciously. This has led to the creation of exceptional restaurants such as Underbelly, located on the corner of Waugh in Montrose – an eatery founded to showcase Chef Chris Shepherd’s journey beneath the city’s surface. With every dish, the chef’s objective is to guide his customers through a diverse mix of flavours while embracing the cultures they hail from. Or head to the boho Montrose district to experience dishes made by one of the best Italian restaurants in town, Sorrento. With live music, a broodingly romantic atmosphere and elegant décor, this venue provides the perfect ambience for falling in love with the menu.
Once suitably satisfied from a night of fine dining, check in at the Lancaster Hotel, located in the city’s downtown entertainment district. Mesmeric with original 19th century art and original features that set it apart from other hotels in the vicinity, not only is The Lancaster the only historic hotel in the area, it’s the only one in the city owned by the descendants of the original developer. Beautifully appointed rooms feature high-end Carrara marble finishes and luxuriously soft, 300 thread count sheets as well as modern amenities such as wireless high-speed internet and 42” flat screen televisions. Unlike the historical splendour of The Lancaster, Hotel ZaZa perfectly balances traditional design with a contemporary aesthetic, with luxury facilities such as mini refrigerators containing gourmet snacks in each room and a butler’s pantry on every floor. Striking views and luxury suites ensure a truly high-end experience to remember. Why not review our airport finder to ensure you choose the airport most suited to your needs.
