Voted the coolest city to live in by Forbes magazine, Houston is definitely a place you want to visit. While it may be true that things are always bigger in Texas, it doesn't necessarily mean you have to come out bigger in your pockets. After a long work week, it's only right that you kick back your feet, enjoy some southern hospitality and head to Houston for a vacation full of activities that won't cost you a dime.
