Every big city has a ton of things to do, whether you want to explore on your own or with a group. If you are with a group, it may be hard to find things that everyone likes. This is especially true of children, who often can be quite picky. If you live in or are visiting H-Town, or Houston, then you are in luck. This city offers something for every kid, or even for adults who are just kids at heart.
One of the biggest attractions in Bayou City, as it is also called, is NASA. This is the headquarters, and they are proud to have many pieces of aerospace history right inside the doors. Besides just artifacts, there are also Build a Rocket programs where you can design your own space shuttle. Then there is Mission Kidtrol, which lets young ones pretend as if they are a part of a team that gets a rocket into space.
There are also lots of other museums in the area that are geared towards the younger set, even though the parents will likely also find them to be fun. The Museum of Natural Science is one options, as is the Children’s Museum, which has tons of fun things to do. Whether you like to learn about science, culture, animals or just want to have fun, this is a great idea for a rainy day.
If the weather is not rainy and you would rather be indoors, you have lots of options there as well. Right in the heart of the city is 155 acres of trees and woods called the Arboretum and Nature Center. This space even has a pond, meadow, and wetlands so that the family can experience every type of environment.
You can get discounts on many of these local attractions through coupon booklets. If you are staying in a hotel, ask the front desk if they have discounts, as many know exactly how to save you money. That means more money to spend at one the area’s thousands of world class restaurants to make your experience even more memorable.
