The first word spoken on the moon was "Houston," so it is fitting that the city is home to one of the finest interstellar museums on planet Earth. NASA’s Space Center Houston boasts masses of permanent displays and attractions, including a flown SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket over 156 feet long. Plus: an extensive artifact collection, live shows, and a NASA Tram Tour that takes visitors behind the scenes at Johnson Space Center.
Make no mistake about it; there is no shortage of brilliant things to do in Houston. Quite the opposite as the country’s fourth-largest city (by population) is a rollercoaster of history, science, culture, and dang good food. Culture should be in block capitals; Houston is home to over 150 museums covering everything from the universe to the grave.
Houston excels outdoors as much as it does inside, with gorgeous bursts of sprawling nature for intrepid explorers. Space City is a place that does it all, engaging the mind and calming the soul before bombarding the senses with food, drink, and fun. This is the ultimate Houston bucket list.
