Houston Travel Guide
Why? The main reason many choose to holiday in Houston is
to visit the Johnson Space Center: NASA's mission control from
where the space shuttle programme is directed. Houston, as a
high-rise metropolis, has plenty more to do and see in its packed
downtown area, and the beaches at Galveston are not far away for
those who need to cool off.
When? A summer holiday in Houston is not for the faint-hearted because the city swelters in soaring temperatures and very high humidity. It is literally possible to fry an egg on the pavement. This of course means that winters are mild and a good time to travel to Houston, and early spring is the best time of all, between February and April.
Who for? Those who will enjoy a holiday in Houston are those who enjoy exploring modern cities of towering glass and steel, for the top shopping, tasty Tex-Mex cuisine and an eclectic collection of museums.
