When you think of the Lone Star State, you probably think of Austin or Dallas. While these cities sure are fantastic, this big glorious state boasts one more great place for a vacation: Houston!

Houston, Texas is a fun and affordable city to travel to. While it might not currently top every travel recommendation list, we can’t recommend it enough. To get a true taste of America you’ve got to stop through Houston. Here are three perfect places to visit when you head into town.

One quick note before we dive in: Houston like most of America, really requires you to have a car in order to be able to explore it to the fullest. That’s why we recommend road tripping in, or renting a car at one the Houston car services centers. Either way once you’ve got wheels you can explore the city in all its glory at your own pace.

1- You Have To Check Out The Space Center

One of the reasons Houston is one of our favorite places to visit is because of the space center. One of the hubs of NASA being present in town is no small thing. The space center itself is an attraction just for its historical value. But there’s even more to do once you’re there. Space Center Houston is a museum that is just a few steps away from the epicenter of NASA’s activity.

In fact at this museum, you can experience the life of an astronauts. From VR and motion simulated space flight, to the Starship Gallery, and even the behind the scenes look at NASA on the tram tour, there’s no way you won’t have fun here. It’s a great way to involve kids who are excited about space or science on the vacation.

Regardless of your age, you’re sure to have fun at Space Center Houston.

2- Indulge In Great Food

When you think of food cities across America, Houston might not be at the top of your list. But this is one city that can prove anyone wrong. The food in Houston is to die for.

Houston is the fourth most populated city in the United States. With a population this big, the city attracts some of the best chefs in the country. These chefs bring tons of great flavors from different backgrounds together in one city. Whether you want amazing Mexican food, something classic and Kosher, Asian influenced, or just good old Texas Barbecue, you can find it here.

Houston is absolutely a foodie city. Personally, we recommend diving into some more adventurous eats. When you head into town, pick something you can’t find at home and give it a try. No matter what you choose you definitely won’t regret it! Though of course, make sure you get some Texas-style ribs before you head out!

3- If You Like Thrills Check Out Kemah Boardwalk For Some Fun!

A true piece of Americana still exist in Houston at the Kemah Boardwalk. This little amusement park, allows you to ride anything you like all day, or on a ride by ride basis. It’s inexpensive, fun, and as quick as you want it to be.

There’s nothing quite like a local theme park to cap off a perfect vacation. Whether you’re into thrill rides, or just want to enjoy the Ferris wheel you’ll definitely enjoy a day with the family or a date night here.

In The End

Houston is a gem of a city. Whether you’re visiting for a week, or a weekend, grab some wheels and explore the whole city! You’re sure to fall in love with what you find!
