Whether you want to make the most of the city while you’re young, are a newcomer with no friends and not much else to do, or have lived here forever but need a good reason to put on pants, consider this your official guide to everything you need to do in Houston before you die (or leave town, which would basically mean you’re dead to us). Time to start living:
1. Kayak the Buffalo Bayou
Work up a sweat while you take in the Houston skyline, navigate the twists and turns of the bayou, or explore the three-mile stretch from Lost Lake to Allen’s landing. Bayou City Adventures offers tours for all levels of experience.
2. Pull of the Museum Triple Crown
Hit the prized Menil Campus, Museum of Natural Science, and Museum of Fine Arts (one of the first and biggest art museums in Texas) all in one day, because you crazy like that.
3. Tailgate at NRG Stadium
Texans tailgate parties are a thing of legends. Bring some meat to grill, a table for flip cup, and your party hat.
