Pssst.....Don't Forget Houston

Houston is Texas's biggest metropolitan region. With its population of over 2 million people, assortment of corporate headquarters, and bustling urban way of life, it may be difficult to picture at first that there would be much for a tourist to do in Houston. That would be wrong. Even with its modern outward look, Houston is an entertainment mecca for the whole family.

One of the largest draws for tourists in the Houston region is the Johnson Space Center. This area not only houses a significant collection of space history, but is also an interactive playground where the entire family can experience the excitement of space travel and relive the experiences of the astronauts. The children in your family will find it fascinating, while the adults will find it to be nostalgic.

To make your stay more "cultural," take a look at the Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Natural Science. The science museum has a planetarium and can be a great educational encounter 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, go to the San Jacinto monument southeast of Houston and see the spot where Texas achieved its freedom.

Lastly, don't skip two very special family points of interest in Houston - the Houston Zoo and the Houston Aquarium. The zoo is right beside the Natural History Museum, making the mix a fun day trip. Numerous types of exotic animals, as well as indigenous 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.
