I Heart Houston: Our Top Places to Visit in Houston, Texas
by Alex Machado on Nov 18, 2020
In partnership with a local Houston store, 713 Shirts, we’ve collaborated on an exclusive “I Heart Houston” patch to mirror the famous “We Heart Houston” sign. This sign is currently located outside of 8th Wonder Brewery, in East Downtown Houston and represents every proud Houstonians’ love for our home!
As a local Houston, Texas business, the Patch Collection team is excited to share some of their favorite Clutch City spots with you!
Kim’s Tea House
Who here is a fan of boba tea? Kim’s Tea House serves delicious boba tea, sandwiches, coffee, and smoothies. Go check it out, it’s absolutely tea-riffic!
I like to order the lychee slurpy with strawberry jelly! And I love their popcorn chicken with basil...I usually order it mild! — Lynna, Patch Collection Office Assistant

Currently, they are offering virtual events such as a Facebook series called “Geek Out Live” where kids can learn fun science experiments at home! The Children’s Museum Houston is dedicated to transforming its community by providing learning resources to the kids in the Houston area.

Japanese Garden in Hermann Park
The Japanese Garden is a serene garden within the Houston Hermann Park. It’s full of beautiful and lush greenery. There are even cherry trees as a symbol of Japan’s gift to the United States in the early 1900s. This garden is the perfect place for a relaxing Sunday stroll! Plus, it’s free to attend!
This place is breathtaking. I took my prom pictures here in high school so it always brings back great memories! — Sam, Patch Collection Production Supervisor

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo
Put your cowboy boots on for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo! It originally began in 1932 and now occurs every spring. It is the largest of its kind! From livestock shows, local shopping, concerts, carnivals, and turkey legs, it is a Houston must-see!
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is always a great time! It’s one of my favorite things to do in Houston because it is a tradition that all Houstonians get to enjoy together! — Natalia, Patch Collection Marketing Coordinator

Japan House is one of our favorites when it comes to all anime goods & toys! They carry a wide variety of Japanese imported goods such as anime and character merchandise, Japanese cosmetics, ceramics, appliances, and stationary.
I like to shop there for the kitchenware and also anime and Gundam! — Lynna, Patch Collection Office Assistant
