The magazine ranks Houston as the 8th best Nightlife City in the entire world. What's more, Houston is the only city from the United States that made the list.
That's right. No Miami. No New York.
So why does National Geographic like the Houston nightlife so much? The magazine says "club-hopping along Washington Avenue is buzzy, unpretentious fun" and also points out there's "excellent theater and jazz for the artsy crowd, too."
Plus you can't go wrong with places that let you wear jeans and cowboy boots.
