Top city spots in Houston, USA

A city with rockets, moon rock, rodeos, theatre, animals, shopping, and a lot of science. “Houston we have a problem” is not something you will hear from tourists setting out to see the sights in this Texan city.

Nicknamed ‘The City With No Limits, there really is no end to the list of interesting things you can do in Houston. Famous for its historical connection with space exploration it’s no surprise that the city’s most popular attraction is the Space Center of Houston. Tour highlights include the world’s largest collection of lunar samples and moon rocks. Weekly events include meet and greet sessions with real-life astronauts! Houston’s fascination with space is matched by an enthusiasm for wildlife. Animal lovers will be awed by the exhibits to be found at Houston Zoo and Houston Arboretum and Nature Center. The Downtown Aquarium is something special. A unique underwater adventure featuring a Louisiana swamp, shipwreck, rainforest, and sunken temple, Ferris wheel, and carousel. This is the perfect venue for families with small children. Space and science entwine at the Houston Museum of Natural Science: you can discover enthralling facts about galaxies at the inhouse Planetarium, or you can interact with butterflies in its Butterfly Center. Then science and sport collide at Minute Maid Park, the home to Houston’s Major League Baseball team the Astros. This impressive ballpark bears retractable roof technology, a feat of engineering that allowed Houston baseball fans to appreciate open-air baseball for the first time in decades. Like many things in Houston, shopping malls are done on a big scale. The Galleria, the most popular retail outlet in the city, houses over 400 restaurants and shops, a swimming pool, and an ice skating rink. Houston is the birthplace of some great international performers. Patrick Swayze, Hilary Duff, and Beyonce Knowles all originate from this part of Texas. For entertainment when in town you must head for Houston’s Theater District. This area has it all: the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, the Alley Theatre, Hard Rock Cafe, Angelika Film Center, and The Ballroom at Bayou Place. If you can’t have fun in Houston, you are looking in the wrong places.
