Perfectly placed from downtown Houston and Hobby airport, Pearland is well positioned for business and leisure travel. There, visitors will find cultural sites to explore, stand-out shopping and award-winning cuisine.
For a unique Pearland experience, venture to the Sri Meenakshi Temple—the only temple dedicated to the Goddess Meenakshi off the shores of India. Built in the 1970s, it’s the third temple of its kind in the United States and is a replica of the original in Maduri, India. Spend a morning exploring the grounds and taking part in one of the temple’s special events.
Later, take advantage of some of the city’s retail opportunities. The 1.1-million-square-foot Pearland Town Center brings together more than 140 shops and specialty boutiques in an open-air center. Nearby, antique, consignment and thrift stores tempt visitors in search of one-of-a-kind treasures.
The city is brimming with top-notch dining such as Chef Ronnie Killen’s restaurants, Killen’s Steakhouse and Killen’s BBQ, where perfectly-smoked brisket, creamed corn and bread pudding have earn nods from the Food Network, GQ magazine and Texas Monthly. Or pay a visit to King’s Biergarten for authentic German food, live music and an Oktoberfest.
