Where does fashion magazine rank Houston as a worldwide travel destination?


HOUSTON – When we think of some of the top travel destinations in the world to visit we think of places like Paris, Sydney, Australia, Botswana, Brazil and New York.

But what about Houston?

In the latest edition of Harper’s BAZAAR, Houston was listed No. 5 among the fashion publication’s The 20 Best Places to Travel in 2020.

The writer makes some very compelling arguments for Houston to be among the must-travel to cities of 2020. Houston even ranked higher than all of the usual United States favorites like New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.

The article points out the sprawling landscapes, the reasonable cost of living and the diverse cuisine (even going as far as to say the Vietnamese and Mexican dining is better here than anywhere else in the country). The writer also found the cultural experience and the state of the art museums and world-class performing arts centers to be first-rate.
