Houston Hotspots: Street Art

If I didn’t mention it before (for the millionth time) I live in Houston, TX.  And although it’s the 4th largest city in the country not many people will travel here for leisure.  However if you do decide to stop by in Houston be sure to check out some of the cities beautiful street art and murals scattered across town.  Here are a few my son and I have visited.

Houston’s biggest mural (11,000-square-feet) at 2800 San Jacinto Street is done by French artist Sebastien  “Mr. D” Boileau.
