Explore Houston.

They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and there are few things as Texas-big as Houston. Located just 30 minutes northwest of William P. Hobby Airport, Houston is the largest major city in the country by area and the fourth-largest by population. In a city that big, you know there’s a ton to do! This cosmopolitan destination features world-class museums, shopping, restaurants, and nightlife that can’t be beat!

One of the nation’s premier sports cities, Houston is home to five professional sports teams and plenty of great venues to see them all, including the legendary Astrodome. Built in 1965, the Astrodome was the world’s first stadium of its kind—fully enclosed, air-conditioned, and capable of seating over 70,000 fans. Now closed after an illustrious decades-long history, the Astrodome is still available for tours.

If you’ve noticed a theme in the naming of local teams, it’s because Houston (or Space City) will always be known first and foremost as the birthplace of space flight. Explore it all at Space Center Houston, the official visitor center of NASA Johnson Space Center and an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institute. Fun for all ages, Space Center Houston features more than 400 space artifacts, including space crafts, moon rocks, and more. Get a glimpse of the future by learning about Houston’s remarkable past.
