Things to do in Houston


Regardless whether you live in Houston or are coming to visit you NEED to know the top 10 things to do in Houston!

1. The Houston Museum of Natural Science.

Full of animals, science and education, this is a must see for the whole family. Parking can be difficult in the museum district so research before you set out. Visit the website here. 

2. Minute Maid Park.

One of the best things to do in Houston is to visit the home of the famous ASTROS at Minute Maid Park. Catching a baseball game would be ideal, but if you do visit in the off season check the website as you still might be able to arrange a tour! It really is a must see for all sports fans.  Visit the website here. 

3. Museum of Fine Arts.

As a diverse and vibrant city Houston has a wonderful Museum of fine arts. It is also in the museum district so as with the Houston Museum of Natural Science parking can be difficult. Visit the website here.

4. Children’s Museum Houston.

This is a favorite of my children. It is full of fun and educational activities. There is a great play area where kids can earn pretend money and then spend it on services. The entrance also includes craft activities. And the science section has loads of hands on activities. It is a great way to spend a full day! Visit the website here. 

5. Houston Zoo

The Houston Zoo is one of the best kids attractions in the city. It is a great day out for all of the family. If you visit in summer make sure you take sun cream and plenty of water – it can get hot! Visit the website here.

Probably one of the most well known attractions in Houston, this is a must for all space geeks! It is a little out of the city but worth the drive. There are lots of activities and tours for visitors to enjoy. Visit the website here.

Huge mall in the centre of Houston, full of designer shops and a huge ice rink. Whatever you are looking to shop for you are sure to find it here. Visit the website here.
