Let Houston Inspire You!

At Southwest Airlines, we know that everything is bigger in Texas, but did you know that Houston alone is home to more than 500 cultural, visual, and performing arts organizations?  Enter the “Let Houston Inspire You!” contest, from December 8–19, 2014, for the spring 2015 weekend trip for a family of four and experience just a fraction of the great art, culture, and cuisine to be had in Houston, Texas. That’s right—the nation’s fourth largest city is home to dance companies ranging from the Houston Ballet to FrentiCore Dance; opera companies Opera in the Heights, Houston Ebony Opera Guild, and Houston Grand Opera; theater companies such as Talento Bilingüe de Houston, The Ensemble Theatre, and Alley Theatre; and musical ensembles ranging from Mercury to Houston Symphony.  The Houston Museum District is one of the largest museum campuses in the country.  It includes 19 institutions within walking distance of one another, from The Children’s Museum of Houston to The Menil Collection.  Galleries and public art abound in Houston, as well; Houston Arts Alliance manages more than 500 works of art that make up the city’s public art collection. Let Houston Inspire You! Contestants may enter with a chance to win this Houston-inspired spring 2015 weekend for a family of four at from 10 a.m. CST, Monday, December 8, 2014, to midnight CST, Friday, December 19, 2014.  The “Let Houston Inspire You!"
