Looking for something to do in Houston? Good chance you’ll find yourself at Reliant Park. One of the largest and most diverse event complexes in the U.S., Reliant Park is home to Reliant Stadium, where the Houston Texans are winding down regular 2012 season home play. Houston basketball fans find the Rockets on the hardwood in downtown Houston at the Toyota Center. It’s early in the 2012 – 2013 season, and there is plenty of Houston Rockets action through the holidays and winter season. Hockey fans are also at home at Houston's Toyota Center enjoying the Houston Aeros in action on the ice.
