What to Do on a Houston-Bound Weekend Getaway

Houston is an incredible, diverse city as well as one of the U.S.’s biggest Latinx hubs. In fact, 44% of the current population is Hispanic and is projected to become predominantly Latinx by 2050. It’s also got plenty for young latinas to enjoy on a visit: a ton of museums, restaurants, bars, shops, outdoor activities, and more. Whether you’re looking for a great place for a getaway with your amigas or enjoying some time away with your familia, there’s no doubt you’ll find plenty to make you smile in H-Town.

Planning a fall getaway to this great Texan city? See if you can plan it around the HUE Mural Festival, a celebration of street art that features tons of work by Latinos and other artists. Even if you don’t make it in November, you can always book a tour to see which pieces remain throughout the year.

If you’re heading to Houston this spring, you have the chance to check out the Houston Latino Film Festival, now in its third year. It’s a great way to support Latinx filmmakers and enjoy films that resonate with our cultura. And with baseball season just around the corner, it’s also the perfect time to plan a trip to go catch an Astros game.

And if you want to support other Latinx events while you’re in town, please check out the Institute of Hispanic Culture of Houston’s website, which features a long list of Latinx-oriented events, like concerts, art and dance lessons, and the annual Folkloric Festival.
