The most populous city in Texas and one of the largest cities in the United States, Houston is sure to do things big. From the iconic San Jacinto Monument to enormous plates of Tex-Mex cuisine, you'll never be hungry in stomach or in spirit. Great beaches, historic boardwalks, and a thriving craft cocktail culture give the city its hip credentials, and discerning culture vultures will love the packed museum district. Hotels close to Houston airport offer a variety of opportunities for a good night's rest, whatever your budget.
Houston, the Eagle Has Landed
Once a tiny outpost in America's old West, Houston has become the epicenter of a new frontier—space. The world-famous Space Center, located just 27 miles southeast of the city, is Houston's biggest tourist draw. Experience the sensation of a blast-off, tour the working Johnson Space Center, and see artifacts from the greatest moments in space flight history.
For something a little more down to earth, check out the parklands of Discovery Green. Located in the shadow of Downtown's skyscrapers, the park is filled with gardens, playgrounds, splash parks, and public art installations, all surrounding a one-acre lake that becomes an ice rink in the winter. The nearby museum district is home to 17 cultural and historic centers, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Contemporary Arts Museum, and the Houston Museum of Natural Science, all within walking distance of one another. A few blocks away at the Houston Zoo, 20 miles south of hotels by Houston airport, you can come face to face with giraffes, elephants, gorillas, and sea lions. Can you afford all this? Sure you can!
