HOUSTON // City Guide

H O U S T O N I like you.


One thing I picked up on right when I got to Houston is that this city is BIG. It is big and it is spread out. Very different from a big city like New York or Chicago and totally different from the “Salti Balti”. There is a lot of green and you have to drive most places. I stayed in the River Oaks district and it was beautiful! All the shops and restaurants you need and not to mention how clean and safe that part of the city is!


So, I learned quickly in Houston that people love to EAT. The restaurants are always full and eating out is the thing to do. Every place we went to was crowded. It didn’t matter what night of the week it was… that is what people were doing, and so were we!

This is a cool Taco Truck (Tacos Tierra Caliente – pictured), that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it. Authentic Mexican and these tacos did not disappoint. It sits outside of the West Alabama Ice House off of West Alabama Street. Here is how it works… you grab some tacos (whatever you pick will be amazing, trust me) and then you walk next door to the Ice House. You find yourself your very own picnic table, grab yourself a cold beer (Coors Light of course) and sit back and enjoy.  The Texas style of living… I don’t hate it.

Two other cool places to add to your list and check out:

Eight Row Flint

This used to be an old gas station converted and has some fun bar games, and as they describe: “We opened a bar named after the source of two of our favorite things: whiskey and tacos.”

Anvil Bar

This is a dark cocktail bar that has good energy throughout and a cool cocktail list. There are always eight original cocktails on the menu, as well as a small, well-edited selection of beers on tap.


So, we all know I found some good sweat spots! My number one was obviously spin. There are two SoulCycle studios in Houston and I checked out both (River Oaks & Memorial). If you get the chance to go I highly recommend Cat G. and Bertha, they are excellent with amazing energy and unreal positive messages. Your soul will be filled!

I also did some of my own Treadmill Tuesday runs on my own and got outside and enjoyed the Houston heat. Have no fear… I get good sweats in no mater what and so should you. Always trying to plan it into your day no matter where you are traveling!


All in all, I love Houston. I think it is a really cool city, has really nice people and I can not wait to go back. They say the Houston heat is no joke but I say bring it on and let’s go back!
