We Are Houston Hotspots

Houston Hotspots is dedicated to creating a sense of community in the Houston metroplex through food, events, and sites. As the largest city in Texas and the fourth most populous city in the country, newcomers can get lost in the big sea we call Houston. We believe that the best way to learn your city and the people is by immersing yourself in it - eating the food, attending events, and exploring the streets! Houston Hotspots is here to help fill the gap and encourage newcomers, visitors, and townies alike to be more active in the city. Follow along with us as we explore H-town bit by bit!

He loves exploring different cuisines especially those with big, bold flavors - he can be considered the culinary adventurer. When he's not out seeking new places to go nor studying behind books, you'll find him hiking or camping outdoors.
