BEST Urban Art Photo Opps in HOUSTON

Houston is known for it’s Urban Art and our city does not disappoint! You will be amazed by the bright colors and meaningful messages as you drive up and down the streets of Houston. We know people love to get photos of and with these beautiful murals, so we decided to drive around and pick out our favorites just for you! Whether you are from out of town and want to see local Houston art, or you are from Houston and have an event you need a photo shoot for, you are going to love these works of art. I have arranged the pictures in the order by which Houston neighborhood they are in, so if you decide to do these you won’t be driving back and forth around the entire city. Also, if they are connected to a restaurant/shop I will include the location of that as well. This will save you lots of time and you can get even more amazing photos for your Instagram feed. πŸ™‚

Texas – Meant to Be Wall

I mean how freaking cute is this wall?! I love all things pink and Texas so I was obsessed. If you are from out of town, by now you probably know there is nothing more Texans love than Texas, so be sure to join in on the love and get your photo here. It is actually on the side of a boutique, so go in and get you some cute clothes as well. πŸ˜‰
