✅ TOP 10: Things To Do In Houston


Houston is a large metropolis in Texas, extending
to Galveston Bay. It’s closely linked with the Space Centre
Houston, the coastal visitor centre at NASA’s astronaut training and flight control complex. The city’s relatively compact Downtown includes
the Theatre District, home to the renowned Houston Grand Opera, and the Historic District,
with 19th-century architecture and upscale restaurants and some world-class museums and
art spaces. Whether it’s your first time to this great
Texan city or your tenth, there’s always something new to discover. Before we get into the top 10 things to do
in houston, we’ve included links in the description to various discount codes and
links to resources of things to do, so make sure you check those out. 10) At number 10 is Buffalo Bayou Park (Free) Buffalo Bayou Park, located centrally, sits
between Memorial Drive and Allen Parkway, and offers a little bit of everything. Wander the length of the park, and you’ll
find playgrounds, dog parks and miles of walking and cycling trails. Check out the Waugh bat colony located under
the Waugh Drive Bridge, which numbers more than 250,000 bats. 9) Number 9 is Houston Museum of Natural Science
(Pay, Groupon) The Houston Museum of Natural Science has
an amazing collection of mineral specimens, space station models, 60 large skeleton mounts,
which include four Tyrannosaurus Rex, a planetarium, and lots more to occupy the family for the
day. The museum’s great popularity is also down
to its generous number of special and guest exhibits. Open seven days a week and established in
1909, it is now one of the most popular museums in North America. 8) At number 8 is Discovery Green (Free) Recently renovated, this 11.78-acre public
city park is thought of as an urban oasis. It is very community spirited, offering free
yoga classes, toddler story times as well as movie nights and regular concerts. It also has a playground, free WiFi, open
air reading rooms and an area from which you can borrow games and balls when the family
feels like getting active. 7) At number 7 is the Downtown Aquarium (Pay) Discover over 400 species of marine life within
a 150,000-gallon, two-story tank at the Downtown Aquarium. Pet a stingray or go on an exhilarating train
ride through the Shark Voyage. It is a great attraction for all the family,
and especially the kids as they can enjoy the aquarium’s rides, from Frog Hopper to
the Aquatic Carousel. There are plenty of treats for the adults
too as the venue includes shopping, an upscale bar, full-service restaurant, a fully equipped
ballroom and geographic and aquatic exhibits. 6) Number 6 is the Cockrell Butterfly Centre
(Pay) Housed inside three stories of glass, the
Cockrell Butterfly Centre habitat teems with more than 1,500 winged wonders from around
the globe, which frolic around a 50-foot waterfall, and flutter through exotic plants. Next to the Houston Museum of Natural Science,
the butterfly habitat includes a simulated rainforest with some of the world’s strangest
arthropods as well as fun interactive quizzes and games. With such a huge variety of species it serves
as a teachable moment for kids and anyone interested in bugs, providing entertainment
and education for the entire family. 5) At number 5 is the Hines Waterwall Park
(Free) The Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park located
at 2800 Post Oak Boulevard, is a great place for the family to obtain some really good
down time within a stunning backdrop. The park features a 64 ft semi circular fountain
that re-circulates 11,000 gallons of water per minute that tumbles down the structure’s
inner and outer walls. This landmark park is surrounded by 186 oak
trees and is a popular spot for people to meet up with friends, enjoy a Frisbee game,
picnic, walk or even a fabulous photographic opportunity. 4) Visit the Houston Zoo at number 4 (Pay) Sheltering over 4,500 animals and 900 species,
the Houston Zoo is one of the most visited zoos in the nation. Watch young elephants splash around in their
80,000-gallon pool, or walk down a winding boardwalk to see a variety of endangered primates,
including lemurs, mandrills, howler monkeys and more. Spend the day strolling through the facility’s
beautifully landscaped grounds, or enjoy a more hands-on encounter by scheduling a guided
tour. Tour experiences range from feeding a giraffe
to shadowing a staff veterinarian for an entire day. 3) At number 3 explore Buffalo Bayou Park
(Free) Buffalo Bayou Park is the 160-acre green space
that lies just west of downtown Houston. The Park includes beautiful gardens and native
landscaping with winding hike and bike paths, and paddle craft and bikes that can be rented. There is a creative nature play area, two
visitor centres and gathering places for visitors to picnic, relax and enjoy outdoor activities. 2) The “Houston is Inspired” mural is
at number 2 (Free) Located on the corner of Travis Street across
from Market Square Park, the mural has become a landmark for the Bayou City. This wonderfully vibrant, colourful image
aims to boost local pride by drawing attention to Houston’s more celebrated characteristics
and has become something of a photographic flag-bearer for the city. 1) And at number 1 is Space Centre Houston
(Pay) One of the city’s topmost attractions, the
space centre is home to more than 400 artefacts together with an abundance of both permanent
and travelling exhibits relating to America’s awesome space flight programs. The real star of the show is the Independence
Plaza exhibit, a 747 aeroplane with a full replica of the space shuttle Independence
mounted above it. In a world first, guests can explore inside
both aircraft, from the flight decks to the astronaut living quarters. The space centre also runs various education
programmes, so you can learn some of the science behind space exploration. So that sums up our top 10 things to do in

    One hideous city, with horrid traffic, oppressive heat and humidity and flat as a pancake but not like Florida which is pretty but like Texas, where prickly pears and prairie mix with swamp lands. So damn ugly. Amazing how it has grown.

    Theatre District? Hahahaha! It's tiny. However, there are (spread throughout the city) more stages than any city outside of NYC.

    Such a overcrowded place, if you like living life on the edge being watched stalked by strangers people steady watching you your every move never can get peace of mind living in a city like this. Dealing with the horrible traffic, almost 2 hrs to get home from work, people on the roads harrasing you, if you like playing around with the next driver flirting with each other on the roads trying to get attention then Houston is the place to be .

    Houston has nothing for tourists. Every city has a park, museum, and aquarium. The only reason someone came to Houston would be for business or to visit the space center and that’s it.

    So I’ve heard some awful stories about how Texas people are very racist towards Mexicans and My fiancé is Mexican and I love him very much but at the same time I would like to visit Texas but I’m scared of some racist going crazy and attacking him and ruining our entire trip to Texas. I want to visit Texas. But I’m scared to.
