The youngsters in your family will find it fascinating, while the adults will find it to be nostalgic.

To make your stay more "cultural," go to the Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Natural Science. The science museum has a planetarium and can be a great educational experience for everyone in your family. The Fine Arts museum houses an assortment of renowned artwork and 18 acres of gardens. If history is your pastime, pay a visit to the San Jacinto monument southeast of Houston and enjoy the spot where Texas achieved its independence.
