Places To Visit In Houston, Texas

This is the last part of my trip to America. The last state I visited was Houston, Texas so I’m gonna share with you a few of my favourite attractions my family and I visited in Houston during our 4D3N stay there.

1) Space Center Houston

Space Center Houston is the official visitor center of the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) center for human spaceflight activities, located at 1601 NASA Pkwy, Houston, Texas, USA 77058. The space center is pretty cool as you get to see all the space aircrafts in real life.

 

Asides from seeing all the aircrafts, there’s activities that you can do with your family in the space center. For instance, you can have lunch with a real NASA astronaut. This gives you the opportunity to hear first hand stories from a NASA astronaut while enjoying lunch.
