45. Be a part of the Art Car Parade
Don’t just gawk at the parade from the sidelines (though that’s fun, too). Sign up to ride in or volunteer for Houston’s weirdest spectacle.
46. Catch the sunset at James Turrell’s Skyspace
Set in an acoustically engineered pyramidal structure on the Rice University campus, the "Twilight Epiphany" show is not only absolutely magical, it’s also absolutely free. Sunrise shows are also available, but who are we kidding.
47. Relive your skater days at a skatepark
There’s the newly renovated Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark right in Buffalo Bayou Park; and then there’s the massive, 10-acre North Houston Skatepark -- the largest skatepark in North America.
48. Snap a photo in front of the “Houston is Inspired” mural
Mad genius graffiti artist Gonzo247 nailed Houston’s truth with this Downtown pièce de résistance, set next to Market Square Park.
49. Actually go for a ride on the Light Rail
We even have a Light Rail Bar Crawl Map to give you a reason to do so.
50. Beef up, buttercup
While Houston may be drastically different than the rest of Texas, we’re still all about the beef. If you’re a steak eater, it’d be a downright sin to leave this world without going full caveman at one of Houston’s fine steakhouses. We’ll even give you a place to start.
