Katie Lawrence is a Southeast Texas native who graduated 18th in her high school class with a GPA of 4.25. She attended college in the Houston area and began writing for OnlyInYourState in 2015.
Today, Katie writes, edits, and performs several other tasks for OnlyInYourState and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
Houston might be stereotyped as a ritzy, expensive metro, but it can be the complete opposite if you know where to look. There are plenty of fun activities you can do for little to no money that are still incredibly fun! These eight places to see in Houston in particular are absolutely amazing and are definitely worth a visit.
