Reliant Park Reliant Stadium©Reliant Park

Houston is a major sports town, which is evidenced by its giant, Texas-sized stadiums. The Houston Astros play at Minute Maid Park - a stadium that comes complete with a retractable roof to protect fans from the city’s notoriously humid weather. Ticket prices are reasonable here, and it even offers free admission to kids in the summer. The Houston Texans throw the pigskin around at Reliant Stadium and the Houston Rockets play hoops at the Toyota Center.

If you rather catch the games from the comfort of a bar, there are plenty to choose from. Pub Fiction in Midtown was inspired by the urban taverns in Chicago and New York City and features a full bar menu and HD flat-screen TVs. There’s also Champps and Saint Dane’s, which is loaded with TVs and has a pet-friendly patio.
