Houston is not for the faint of heart. It is a big city. No, it's not New York or even LA, but it can be just as hot and hectic as either of those cities, in its own Texas kind of way. I lived in Houston for about 9 months when I was 20 years old. I was not prepared for the humidity and the heat. Sure, I was a Fort Worth girl, but Houston is bigger and hotter and more humid.
However, if you are a city person and can handle the heat or avoid the summer months, Houston has a lot to offer. Go look at HoustonGuide.com for some information on the city. It's got everything you need for conventions and meetings.
It's something different for most people. The Texas hospitality is good. Texas isn't quite the South and it isn't quite the West.
It's a unique blend.Of course, you have Six Flags, Astro World, and tons of sporting events. You've got museums, art exhibits, an aquarium and the Houston zoo. But I think the most unique attraction in Houston is the Space Center.
There's something you can't see in every city! That's Spacecenter.org. Even their web site is high tech.The web site can give you a feel for the Space Center, but it's nothing compared to actually going there and seeing it for yourself. Tickets are under $20. Right now, there's a coupon for $2 off that you can print and take with you.
The Space Center has attractions for kids, educational programs, historical information about astronauts and space ships, just about everything you can think of!.I can hardly wait to see their new Blastoff! It's been described as "IMAX in 10D." Sounds like that's the way to see what space travel is all about. So, enjoy Houston, and be sure to see the Space Center while you're there!..
