Top 5 Places to Photograph and Take Selfies in Houston

Selecting the Top 5 best places to photograph in Houston was a much bigger challenge than we thought. There are so many outstanding venues, sculptures, street art, parks, and museums to explore. So, we started by asking a group of South Main RV Park’s guests for their suggestions. We were surprised by the number of places they recommended that we’d never seen and can’t wait to visit.

Then we turned to the online selfie “experts” (celebrity bloggers, make-up artists, models, and professional photographers) to discover what tips they offered on how to find the perfect place to take a selfie. We discovered there is an art to grabbling selfies your friends will love seeing in their feeds.

For potential locations, the experts suggested places that offer good lighting, interesting angles or architecture, iconic symbols, breathtaking views, charm, romance, historic significance, spirituality, specimens in their natural habitat, or cultural significance.

Narrowing down our list proved to be its adventure. But, here are South Main RV Park’s Top 5 Places to Take a Selfie in Houston.
