Black History Month
You know one of the greatest things about experiencing Houston as a destination? The sheer amount of cultural diversity around every corner.
This February, we celebrate the contributions and history of this city's African American community. From the West Indies to East Africa, we're able to see, taste, and explore the many facets of the various cultures and how Houston has helped them not only survive, but thrive.
There is no shortage of new dishes to try, people to meet, and places to see. Take a look at our guides below to get started.
Third Ward, The Tre, Beyonce's stomping grounds. This neighborhood is full of fledging businesses that come with a story. See some of our local favorites and stop by to pick up a gift for someone special... or, yourself. ♥️ View the list...
