Houston is home of the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, where NASA brings its spacecraft to life and where visitors can explore center s operations. It's also home to many museums and some of the best Tex-Mex restaurants in the country. When the northern weather gets too chilly, head across the Potomac River to the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) in Arlington. You can fly from Washington, D.C., to Houston in less than four hours without connections.
While the Houston Space Center attracts many visitors each year, the Museum District receives its fair share of attention as well. You can easily spend a day or two in this area visiting the Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Natural Science, Holocaust Museum and Children's Museum. When you're ready to shop and eat, go uptown to the Galleria. There are more than 400 shopping opportunities and a growing number of restaurants in this shopping district.
Once you arrive at Houston s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), there are rental cars and taxis, and you may share a ride with other passengers using the SuperShuttle. The Metro public busing system also will take you to most areas of the city. Expect temperatures above 80 degrees between May and October, with more moderate temperatures the rest of the year.
