What Houston (IAH) has to offer

Your flight to Houston, Texas

Your flight to Houston, Texas

Welcome to the fourth biggest city of the USA, Houston in Texas at the Gulf of Mexico. While the city has its name from a venerable Texas War Hero, General Sam Houston, the city’s founders, the Allen brothers, actually came from New York. Their investment in the land at the Buffalo Bayou paid of big time, two years later the city became capital of the Republic of Texas. Today it is the centre of space exploration, but also for art, jazz and fine food.

Museum hopping in Houston

When the first oil was found near Houston in 1901, the city grew together with the industry. In the 1960s it was picked as the host of the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, from here all NASA missions are planned and controlled, including the famous Apollo 13 accident that made the words “Houston, we have a problem” immortal. Well, Houston solved this and many other problems and is considered the boomtown of the USA. Part of the high standard of living is the investment in culture. The Museum district, one of the biggest of its kind in the USA, features museums ranging from the extraordinary to the downright weird. The Contemporary Arts Museum is a showroom for changing artists from all over the world, the Museum of Natural Science explains complex science to its visitors, the John C. Freeman Weather Museum features a tornado simulator and other weather experiments, the National Museum of Funeral History gives you a creepy history of funeral customs from embalming to a casket exhibition.

Ballet and Rodeo, each at its best

The fans of classical music will have their time full of great entertainment. In the downtown area, next to the skyscrapers of the big companies, is the Theater District. The Houston Grand Opera, a Grammy and Emmy winning institution, is located in the Wortham Theater Center. The Jones Hall for the Performing Arts is home to the Houston Symphony Orchestra, the Houston Ballet performs at the Center for Dance. If you want to see the more of the Texas cowboy culture, head to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo or visit the George Ranch Historical Park, an open-air museum about the pioneer days and cowboy culture. Don’t miss the opportunity to eat a traditional Texas BBQ steak. A tour of the city wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Space Center Houston. Enjoy your stay in Houston!
