That is the kind of transformation that has seen Houston’s tourism industry growing by leaps and bounds. Tens of millions of people from out of town and foreign countries make their way here all year round. The pleasant year-long weather has a huge role to play for that decision.

A huge financial push in the real estate industry – One of the biggest reasons for the sudden tourism boom is the real estate industry. More people, more fun, more entertainment.

Bayou, where worlds meet – Although the public transportation system in Houston is mostly reliable and affordable, it makes more sense for large groups to make use of charter buses when visiting crowded attractions during the holidays. Wide acceptance of Houston’s growth was encouraging; hence the emergence of places like Bayou Place. Bayou is a vibrant place which was opened up in 1997 and measures, according to official stats, up to one hundred and thirty thousand square feet in total. It is the place where tourist can find all sorts of entertainment, including theaters, malls, comedy shows, restaurants, cafes, and night spots too. During peak periods, parking can be a huge problem and that is when using a Houston charter bus comes highly recommended.

Mosaic – DJing things up – If you are heading over looking for a fun nightspot, then consider Rocbar or Mosaic. These are DJ hot spots, which mean that there is often a showcase or showdown between talented DJs all year round. It is classy and casual at the same time. Big names in the DJ world has made their way here before in the past and who knows, you might get lucky and get to spend the night listening to a popular DJ spinning the songs out for you all night long while you enjoy your drinks.
