HOUSTON — Family coming to town for the holidays? Maybe the in-laws are staying a little longer than expected?

We know the best places in Houston to take out-of-town guests.

Located in the heart of the city, Buffalo Bayou Park is an obvious choice for Houston Press's Best Place to Bring Out-of-Towners. The park has lush green space and the beautiful Buffalo Bayou flowing through.

Whether you want to take a post-holiday-meal stroll, ride bikes along the water or even paddle through the city in a kayak. The park is a great place to have some outdoor family fun. Your out of town guests can also check out a scenic view of the city.

Head on over to White Oak Music Hall to catch the best scenic view of H-town, according to the Houston Press.

Complete your tour of the city and head to the Museum District. Named Houston Press' Best Tourist Attraction, and true to its name, the neighborhood is filled with museums.

See masterpieces at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, spend some time with prehistoric giants at the Houston Museum of Natural Science or head over to the Houston Zoo for some quality time with some adorable giants.

...we all know what can happen when families stay cooped up in a house too long.

Take our advice this holiday, and your family will leave Houston with memories that will last a life time.
