Houston is situated near the Gulf of Mexico,

on the bayous and shorelines of Galveston
Bay.

Houston is the most populous city in Texas

and one of the largest cities in the USA.

Named after the general

who led the territory to independence from
Mexico in 1836,

Houston began life as tiny outpost in America’s
old west.

Just one hundred and twenty-five years later,

the city would become the center for exploring
a new frontier ~ Space.

In fact, the first official words transmitted
from the Moon’s surface were,

“Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle
has landed.”

Yet despite Houston’s size and star-bound
aspirations,

this metropolis remains refreshingly down
to Earth.

And for a city built on the big-business of
energy, shipping and aerospace,

it’s surprisingly cultural too.

Beneath Houston’s downtown skyline,

the parklands of Discovery Green are filled
with striking public art.

While nearby, the Museum District is home
to 18 cultural, historic,

and science museums, all within walking distance
of one another.

Here you’ll find one of the world’s great
private art collections.

The Menil Collection showcases treasures from
antiquity

through to the works of modern masters like
Picasso, Warhol and Rothko.

Displayed simply within this Renzo Piano designed
gallery,

the collection prides itself on being accessible,
friendly and free.

Nearby, continue your journey through the
artistic ages

at the Museum of Fine Arts.

While just a few blocks away at the Houston
Zoo,

come face to face with some of Planet Earth’s
living treasures.

Still within the Museum District is historic
Hermann Park,

home to the soaring Pioneer Memorial and the
Reflecting Pool.

If Hermann Park is the place Houstonians go
to relax,

Memorial Park is the place they go to get
active, and back to nature.

Set within the park is the Houston Arboretum
and Nature Center,

over 150 acres of tranquil forest, meadow,
and wetlands habitats.

Flowing gently through the heart of Houston
is Buffalo Bayou.

At it’s mouth rises the San Jacinto Memorial,

marking the site where in just 18 minutes,

General Sam Houston’s army won the Lone Star
State it’s independence.

Nearby, walk the decks of another reminder
of past conflict,

Battleship Texas.

Commissioned in 1914 and serving through to
two World Wars,

this much-feared, former flagship of the US
Navy

now serves a much quieter roll ~ as a museum
ship.

Houston’s most popular ships of all, however,
are its spacecraft.

Don’t miss Space Center Houston,

where you’ll experience humankind’s greatest
adventure;

from the moon landings, to the International
Space Station, and beyond.

One of the reasons NASA chose Houston

as the center for it’s spaceflight activities,

is the almost perfect year-round weather.

But be prepared, it can get hot on the Gulf
Coast.

When the temperature rises,

cool off at Houston’s beaches, water-parks,
and old-school fun fairs.

Catch the sea breeze at Kemah Boardwalk

which serves up the simple pleasures of yesteryear.

Or, hurl through time and space at the Galveston
Historic Pleasure Pier.

Meet Houston’s coolest residents at Moody
Gardens.

This futuristic complex of pyramids houses
an aquarium, rainforest,

and discovery center, and is a total celebration
of our living planet.

When the sun starts to set, take a walk by
the gulf.

Then refuel on some fiery Tex Mex cuisine,

before launching into another day in the brightest
star in Texas ~ Houston.
