A 30th birthday is a good time to try new things, face your fears and welcome a new phase of adulthood. Even though you are not 21 anymore, you can still have an unforgettable birthday celebration. As the fourth largest city in the United States, Houston is a great city to celebrate your birthday in. Invite your close family members and friends to celebrate your birthday with you in Houston.

Eat your birthday meal at Baba Yega. The restaurant has been around for over 30 years and has both indoor and outside seating. If you sit outside, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the waterfall, fish pond and fountains. The dining establishment also has a private room that fits up to 44 people. The menu features hamburgers, steaks, seafood and sandwiches.

Shop at the Uptown Park Shopping Center. The center offers almost 40 different stores to shop at, and is surrounded by European architecture and beautiful fountains. After you are done purchasing clothes and accessories, stop in one of the salons to receive a manicure or pedicure.

Go see a performance at the Houston Ballet. As the fourth largest ballet company in the country, the Houston Ballet has been entertaining guests for over 50 years. Some of the biggest ballets performed there include "Swan Lake," "Dracula" and "The Snow Maiden."

Dance the night away at the Venue. Just because you are no longer in your 20s does not mean you can't show off your dance moves at one of Houston's hottest clubs. Since 2006, the 11,000 square feet club has been entertaining the public with DJs, live music and dancers. When you need a break from dancing, you can sit on one of the comfortable couches and enjoy a drink.
