713 Day: Here are 13 ways to celebrate Houston on its most glorious day



HOUSTON – It’s “713 Day,” y’all. If you’re in Houston, that means it’s your day.

While it’s not an official holiday, the date mirrors Houston’s first area code, 713. Today, the Houston metropolitan area uses a total of four area codes.

1. Jump in a SLAB — or a car that just makes you feel cool and just DRIVE. Driving is what Houstonians do.

2. Eat a meal from a culture that’s not your own. It’s easy. There’s so much to try. Here are a few stories we’ve done to inspire you:

3. Chill out with a tasty frozen or cold drink. It’s hot here, y’all. Get yourself a big snow cone, Houston-made beer, bubble tea, daiquiris to go or margaritas to go or just a big Dr Pepper.

4. Visit a beautiful place. Some have said Houston isn’t a pretty place. We know, we know. Those billboards along the Southwest Freeway aren’t the most glorious thing ever, but Houston has pockets of beauty tucked here and there and everywhere. Some of our favorite places are the Japanese Garden at Hermann Park, the Cockrell Butterfly Center, Memorial Park with its super-cool new land tunnels and walking down Heights Boulevard to marvel at the historical homes that have survived the city’s notorious wrecking ball.

5. Go to the park. Houston has an impressive number of parks with so much to offer.

6. Visit one of Houston’s amazing array of museums — and many of them are FREE.

Sourabh Verma,From Franklin Tn - Sub-editor in Asian News International(ANI) I am a detailed-driven journalist with 3+ years of experience in news writing and copy-editing, I can file quick, compelling and error-free stories as they break. I have sound knowledge of national and international issues and have covered stories across beats, including politics, parliament, legal and crime like drugs and Human Trafficking at Asian News International (ANI), where I currently work. Some of these include extensive coverage of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, several state Assembly elections, Parliament sessions, COVID-19 pandemic and other stories of national importance. A typical working day involves copy-editing dozens of drafts, managing junior sub-editors in shifts and keeping an eye on developing stories. This added responsibility followed a couple of years of filing stories based on press briefings, bytes and inputs from reporters on the ground.
