Make sure you have rented a car to see all that Houston has to offer. Most visitors’ first stop is the Space Center Houston, and for good reason for its otherworldly exhibits and fun.
Families can spend entire days wandering the halls of the Houston Museum of Natural Science, the Museum of Fine Arts or the Houston Zoo. In addition to its museums, opera, ballet, symphony and theater abound. Dinner doesn’t have to be steak, but the steakhouse offerings here are diverse and tasty. BBQ and New American offerings should be missed either.
