Houston is the largest city in Texas, the state where everything is big! The city itself teems with adventures: museums and galleries for culture vultures; plenty of open space for nature lovers; a variety of teams for sports fans to watch; and a space center for the dreamers. Book a stay in one of the hotels in Downtown Houston, and get ready to blast off to a great vacation in "Space City."
Disembark your Houston flight, and check in to one of the hotels near Downtown Houston; you'll notice immediately the easy access to the city's best attractions. If you're a baseball fan, you can catch a Houston Astros game at Minute Maid Park during the season, from April to October. Sam Houston Park is a great place to stretch your legs and get some fresh air while looking at historical houses, while The Downtown Aquarium is ideal for kids who love sea animals and interactive adventure exhibits.
A few miles south of Downtown is the huge Hermann Park, where you can take a stroll, visit Houston Zoo, or explore the Houston Museum of Natural Science. It's also within walking distance of the Museum District, which features world-class exhibits in the Menil Collection, the Children's Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts, among others. One of Houston's most famous attractions is the working NASA base at the Space Center; it's a bit out of town, but it's absolutely unmissable. Most Downtown Houston hotels will be able to help you arrange tours or tickets.
