Results:

Mostly A’s: A picnic in Buffalo Bayou or Hermann Park with some friends, maybe even take some time to stroll around the trails or bring a bike to ride. After a picnic spread on the hill and taking in the scenery, take your blanket and stop by the Miller Outdoor Theater for a show.

Mostly B’s: A visit to the Houston Zoo during the day and exploring the city using the Metro rail system. The zoo is a fun way to start off a Houston day before hopping on the rail and exploring all the fun stops along the way. If you’re still feeling adventurous towards the end, see if you can catch a baseball game at Minute Maid Park.

Mostly C’s: Hop from exhibit to exhibit in the Museum District for a taste of culture and excitement. There are many galleries within the Houston area, including the Menil Collection, as well as the popular museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts that you can take the time to walk between and see all the exhibits. While in that area, feel free to check out a nice restaurant to have dinner at afterwards.

Mostly D’s: This is a sign you should explore the food truck options and nightlife near the Montrose area. Even if your goal is to get a dish from every food truck down Montrose, that can be a day in itself, and by the time you’re done, you can check out any of the thrift shops, tattoo parlors and nightlife scenes for some entertainment.

Mostly E’s: A good ol’ trip to the Galleria is in the cards for you. There is so much more to do there than just shop, like check out some of the restaurants, go ice skating at the rink, or check out the Fomo Factory and take lots of pictures. When all is done there, continue the fun by checking out some shops near River Oaks.
