The Downtown District is an advocate for businesses, residents, employees, developers and others-- our goal is to create a livable community and a destination for all. The marketing programs that we have in place are a great source of information to businesses as well as local Houstonians and visitors to our great city.
We produce a quarterly publication called downtown
magazine, available both in physical and digital copies. Part city magazine, part guide, you'll find interesting and topical editorials and profiles as well as a comprehensive dining guide and datebook sharing info on what to do and where to go downtown. Our target audiences are downtown workers, residents, and visitors, both local and out-of-town. We currently distribute 65,000 magazines per quarter.
The Downtown District produces and manages the Downtown Houston
website, downtownhouston.org, which serves as a one-stop-shop for everything you need to know about Downtown Houston. The most popular sections for visitors include our calendar of events and guide sections and we also have a robust doing business section that includes a multitude of reports and links to helpful information.
Interactive Downtown Parking Map
Although there is a large supply of public parking Downtown, it still can be confusing. We recently created the Downtown Interactive Parking Map
that now makes it faster and easier to find a spot. Garage, on-street, surface and valet parking are all listed as well as useful tips that will help make you a Downtown parking expert! Make sure you add this handy tool to your favorites.
We produce a weekly e-newsletter
, The List, which goes out to approximately 21k subscribers every Thursday at 9:30 am
. The eBlast includes top-level weekly happenings that vary from concerts to theater performances to new restaurant openings.
In addition to the outlets mentioned above, we also manage the official Downtown Houston Facebook
accounts. With thousands of followers, we are happy to help spread the word about Downtown business, events and newsworthy tidbits.

Lastly, we produce a variety of maps and other materials promoting Downtown Houston including our most popular piece, the Downtown Above & Below Map. Greenlink brochure, Historic District Map & Guide, Holiday Guides and more round out our inventory.
