Take a flight from Chicago (Midway) to Houston (Hobby) with Southwest. Whether it’s your first time visiting or you’ve gone a hundred times, Houston always has something new to offer. Foodies enjoy the location for its diverse range of cuisine. The city has thousands of different restaurants that serve food from all over the world, although Tex-Mex is Houston’s claim to fame. For sports lovers, Houston is a dream come true. Catch a professional baseball, football, or basketball game while you’re in town and root for the home team. Is your head always in the clouds? Visit Space Center Houston to learn more about some of NASA’s most impressive rockets.
In addition to Space Center Houston, you will find plenty of other interesting museums to visit as well. The Museum of Natural Science is home to other space station models and also some pretty cool dinos—including four T-Rexes! For those individuals who like art, the Museum of Fine Arts covers more than 6,000 years of history with approximately 64,000 works from all over the world. Talk about impressive! Do you have little ones with you? Check out the Houston Children’s Museum, which offers fun exhibits the whole family can enjoy. After all that learning, you might like to get out and soak up some Houston sunshine (and we don’t blame you!) Take a stroll through one of Houston’s beautiful parks. Or rent a bike and hit a trail—it’s a win-win, either way!
If you’re an animal lover, you can meet marine animals at the Downtown Aquarium or say hello to tigers at the Houston Zoo. Or even more astonishing, go to Waugh Bridge to see a colony of 250,000 Mexican free-tailed bats emerge at dusk and feast on insects! After you see the animals, go out for a delicious dinner. While Houston is famous for Tex-Mex and craft beer, you still might want to check out Houston’s Chinatown for classic and contemporary Chinese dishes that are packed with flavor. With so many great dining options, it will be hard to choose!
