Houston Attractions You’ve Never Heard Of

If you are visiting Houston, you may want to take a look at some of the Houston attractions off the beaten path, because they can offer an experience that tourists rarely get to have. Here are some of our favorite Houston attractions that most tourists don’t know about. The first is the Forbidden Gardens in Katy, Texas, an outdoor museum showcasing replicas of some of the most amazing attractions in China, and giving those who have never been, or don’t plan to go in the near future, a fairly close experience to the real thing.

Another great one on the list of Houston attractions you probably haven’t heard of is the King’s Orchard, where you wander an amazing array of fruit trees and plants, and pick whatever you want. You’ll place the delicious fresh fruits and vegetables that you have picked into a provided box and pay for it before you leave. Then, you can enjoy amazing straight-off-the-vine fruits and vegetables on your vacation. This is one of the Houston attractions that is out of the way, but is certainly worth a visit, especially if you love the taste of vine-ripe fruit and veggies.

A landmark in Houston, but not one of the Houston attractions that tourists usually get to see is the Beer Can House, created by retired upholsterer John Milkovisich. He started the project in 1968 and has been building onto the place for decades. The attraction? The house is sided by beer cans, beer can wreaths and garlands hang from the porch, wind chimes made of the top of beer cans swing in the wind. The house is famous, and has been featured on Ripley’s Believe it or Not, estimating that the beer can total is over 50,000.
