Watch Football in Houston
Houston is a major football town. Sure, it doesn’t have the rabid fans of Seattle or the history of Wisconsin’s Lambeau Field, but Houston natives take their pigskin seriously. There’s always a game on locally, whether it’s the Super Bowl or just a nearby college team on one of Houston’s cable channels.
Houston with Kids
Houston is a kid-friendly town. About one-quarter of the city’s population is under 18, which explains why many of the city’s amenities welcome all ages. While some upscale eateries frown on toddlers at the table, most eateries offer booster seats and friendly smiles to families. Some even have crayons and games to occupy little ones. There are dozens of water parks, adventure centers and sport courts for tots to teens, plus nighttime events that cater to young visitors.
