Attractions Guide: Things To do and See in Pearland
From swinging a five-iron on the city's finest golf courses to swiping a credit card at fashion department stores or locally-owned specialty shops, Pearland provides a quiet respite from the hustle-and-bustle of the big city, but with metropolitan amenities and sites to see just minutes away.
Whether visiting for business or leisure, Pearland boasts more than 140 restaurants that will excite even the most refined taste buds -- including Killen's Steakhouse that was recently recognized by Tom Horan as one of Texas' Top Steakhouses. So after a long day of adventures, settle down for a nice comfortable meal in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Your taste buds will thank you for it. If your palate wishes something else, try King’s Biergarten for German food and entertainment, Floyd’s and Joe’s Crab Shack for seafood and Central Texas Barbecue serving their hickory smoked meat and homemade desserts for 40 years.
See a Hindu Temple, Sri Meenakshi, the only temple dedicated to Goddess Meenakshi off the shores of India.
