Our latest episode of ourGet Back Out There series drops Wednesday but we've got an exclusive teaser today for Out Traveler readers!
The fifth stop as we “Get Back OUT There” is the multicultural city of Houston, which happens to be the fourth largest in America and known as the “Energy Capital of the World.” It’s a bustling city full of art, science, food and culture all with a unique Texas flare, providing a little bit of something for every type of traveler.
We stayed at the Royal Sonesta at the Houston Galleria. It’s centrally located for all the major activities you’d want to do while visiting the city. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and provide everything that you could need during your getaway, with amenities like an outdoor pool, business center, and on-site fine dining.
We visited Houston at the perfect time because it was PRIDE weekend and ended our time in the Montrose District to take part in the celebratory festivities. Up until 2016, this area of town was home to the oldest gay bar known as The Montrose Mining Company, which operated from 1978 to 2016. It’s now a restaurant called Postino’s Wine Bar, that continues to pay tribute to the gay bars that were previously housed in this space.
