CITY FUN

While in Houston, be sure to visit Space Center Houston, the tourism center for NASA’s astronaut training center, where you can see Mission Control, watch inspiring films, have lunch with astronauts, and get up close with rockets and other space vehicles.

Science lovers will also enjoy the Houston Zoo, Downtown Aquarium, Museum of Natural Science, and Texas Medical Center — the largest medical center in the world. Art enthusiasts will find plenty to do in the Museum District, an area with 19 museums, and can take in numerous opera, ballet, symphony, and theater performances throughout the city. And sports fans can cheer on the big three Texans, Astros, and Rockets, as well as the Houston Dynamo soccer team.

 

GETTING AROUND

Houston is a sprawling city, and having a car is essential to get around.
