Texas Trips: Mapping Out Your Houston Stops

Houston is Texas's biggest metropolitan area. With its population of over 2 million people, array of corporate headquarters, and busy urban lifestyle, it may be hard to imagine at first that there would be much for a vacationer to do in Houston. That would be a mistake. Even with its modern outward appearance, Houston is an entertainment mecca for the entire family.

One of the biggest attractions for vacationers in the Houston region is the Johnson Space Center. This site not only houses a big collection of space history, but is also an interactive playground where the entire family can experience the pleasure of space expedition and relive the encounters of the astronauts. The kids in your family will find it fascinating, while the adults will find it to be nostalgic.

To make your stay more "cultural," visit the Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Natural Science. The science museum includes a planetarium and can be a great educational encounter for every person in your family. The Fine Arts museum is home to a collection of famous artwork and 18 acres of gardens. If history is your pastime, take a look at the San Jacinto monument southeast of Houston and see the place where Texas gained its independence.

Lastly, don't skip two very special family attractions in Houston - the Houston Zoo and the Houston Aquarium. The zoo is located by the Natural History Museum, making the mix a worthwhile day trip. Many types of unique animals, as well as native species, are housed there. The aquarium sits right in downtown Houston and has rides, restaurants, and entertainment in addition to the half-million-gallon aquarium encounter.
