Looking for a new travel destination in 2023? Travel + Leisure can help — they just released their Top 50 Best Places to Travel in 2023 list.
2023 is expected to mark the year that travel resumes in earnest now that a large portion of the planet has been reopened.
Travel + Leisure divided its list into several categories of travel: cultural riches, food and wine, big-city thrills, moments on the water, fresh air and nature, beach vibes and a look at the future.
You can find the Texas travel destination in the big-city thrills category: Houston!
Today, a wealth of new ventures is poised to raise the profile of Texas’s largest city in other categories as well.
The Houston Zoo is undergoing a much-delayed expansion that will include a Galápagos Islands–themed exhibit, which will feature an underwater tunnel and a penguin habitat.
And the Houston Botanic Gardens, which opened in 2020, features 132 acres of diverse ecosystems, from wetlands to prairie.
