They say everything’s bigger in Texas and in Houston, the burgeoning luxury scene is no exception. Charter a private jet to Houston and discover how this modern bastion of classic southern charm is making a push into the elite travel arena.
According to Travel & Leisure’s 2011 America’s Favorite Cities survey, Houston ranks #4 in the Luxury Shopping category, behind only New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles. That’s pretty good company.
Check out boutiques like 310 Rosemont in the River Oaks shopping center for designer jeans and swanky cocktail dresses, and the Chloe Dao Boutique (formerly Lot 8 boutique), signature retail location for Project Runway 2 winner and Houston native, Chloe Dao. These and other chic Houston shops exude Texas charm, flash the hottest fashions and do it without the LA and New York price tags.
Do you have any idea how many pairs of shoes you can pack into a Learjet 35?
Vibrant Cultural Scene
With a continued emphasis on art and culture, Houston has positioned itself among the nation’s leaders in refined leisure. That’s right – they don’t just dish out BBQ and lasso steer, although they still do both of those things very well, ya’ll.
Seating close to 1,300 in its live performance venues, Houston’s downtown theatre district ranks second in this regard only to New York City. It is one of only five cities that serve as a permanent home to professional ballet (Houston Ballet), opera (Houston Grand Opera) and music (Houston Symphony Orchestra) companies. Similarly impressive, the Houston museum district houses several notable establishments, attracting millions of patrons every year.
Let’s face it, if you’re going to charter a jet to Houston you’re going to need a quick rundown of the nicest hotels in the city. Fear not – we’ve got it covered.
Try the St Regis or the Hotel Granduca in the exclusive River Oaks area. Tucked away from the bustle of the city’s major metro area, these high-end hotels are located close to some of Houston’s best shopping and tourist attractions. However, if you’re looking to experience the heart of the city, consider the classically elegant Four Seasons, located in Houston’s energetic downtown area.
Charter a plane to Houston and see it all for yourself. Choose from a number of local airports like Ellington Airport (EFG), Sugar Land Regional Airport (SGR) and William P. Hobby (HOU), located at different points across the city.
