There are only three other cities in the entire US that have larger populations than Houston. And in Texas, Houston is #1, so you know there are more fun things to do there than you can imagine. Even if you’re from the area, making it to all the major attractions in H-Town would take a lifetime. What are you looking to do? Here is a quick look at three places of interest in Houston TX that you might enjoy.
You’ve heard this line: ‘Houston, we have a problem.’ Houston is known for its space program, and of course that makes the Houston Space Center the #1 attraction. If you’ve never been there, it’s a great place to start. Make your way to 1601 NASA Parkway, and enjoy this very educational and adventurous experience. There is a very nice museum there, and get this, you’re going to find over 400 artifacts tied to space exploration. It’s a mission for all ages.
There are zoos in many major cities, but the Houston Zoo is going to be one of the best. You know it has to be, with H-Town being one of the largest US cities. The address for the zoo is 6200 Hermann Park Drive, and there are more than 6000 animals there. That’s a lot to see and do just visiting the animals alone, so you can imagine a day at the zoo would be quite fun.
My personal favorite is Minute Maid Park, my old stomping grounds. No, I never played for the Astros, but I did go to many home games there when they were playing my favorite MLB team, the St Louis Cardinals. It’s always a blast at Minute Maid Park, let me tell ya. A recommendation for seats would be the Crawford Boxes, and maybe you will have the opportunity to catch a home run ball like I did. It would be really cool, and either way, you’re going to have a blast catching a game there.
That’s three top Houston TX attractions for you to check out, and you’re going to just be getting started. Come back for more because I have quite a few to tell you about. Get ready to experience everything that H-Town has to offer. Kicking your family vacation off with the Houston Zoo, Minute Maid Park and the Houston Space Center is the way to do it, that’s for sure.
