Houston, named after former General Sam Houston, is the fourth most populated city in North America and home to approximately two-and-a-half-million residents. It is a magnet for tourism, being closely linked with the Space Center Houston, and NASA’s astronaut training and flight control complex together with many other interesting attractions.
Houston is a really cool place to visit. You can take a three-hour tram tour of the Johnson Space Center or spend all day checking out the city’s many, many museums. Some of the area’s best restaurants show off Houston’s culinary prowess.
Space Center Houston is the Official Visitor Center of NASA Johnson Space Center, which is home to Mission Control and astronaut training. At Space Center Houston, visitors can experience space from its compelling future to its exciting present and dramatic past. Space Center Houston is one of the only places on Earth where visitors can see astronauts train for missions, touch a real moon rock and take a behind-the-scenes tour of NASA.
The Museum District is Houston’s cultural heart, with venues exploring subjects ranging from natural science to the African-American experience. The vast collection at the Museum of Fine Arts encompasses Egyptian antiquities, Impressionist art and American sculpture, while Houston Zoo is home to rhinos and cheetahs with an incredible variety of animals and ecosystems. Hermann Park is popular for its pedal boats and miniature railway and also has a Japanese garden.
The Houston Museum of Natural Science has an amazing collection of mineral specimens, space station models, 60 large skeleton mounts which include four Tyrannosaurus Rex, a planetarium, and lots more to occupy the family for the day.
From March through November, the open-air Miller Outdoor Theatre in Hermann Park puts on lively stage productions. Think live jazz, ballet, and musical theater, that are absolutely cool and free. It obviously draws a crowd. This remarkable facility with its free high-quality programs is unique in the U.S. It is the only proscenium theatre in the country that offers an artistically excellent, culturally diverse, eight-month season of performances totally free of charge to the public. In the off-season, a picnic at Downtown’s urban park, Discovery Green, is another smart choice.
