Space Center

by imolinar

Is it worthy going to the Space Center?. I am going by myself (30 year old woman).
I have been in the one in Orlando (Kennedy Space Center), is it different, looking at the pictures they look similar....

Re: Space Center

by nomad7890

I visited the souvenir shop for Johnson Space Center but it was on my way back from Kemah, and I did not go in so I cannot really say how different they are.

If you are looking for a nice day trip from Houston, have you tried Kemah? This is where the Gulf comes into the Galveston Bay and you could have lunch in one of the restaurants while looking at the beautiful yacths come in and out of the harbor. The restaurant I had lunch at was the Flying Dutchman - I was also by myself, but enjoyed it tremendously - so relaxing to sit and watch the bay with a nice glass of wine and lunch. Worth the drive from Houston.

by bocmaxima

It's geared more for kids. They have a tram tour that's interesting, but it depends on how into the space program you are. The Johnson Space Center is different from the Kennedy in that the former is the control center and the latter is a landing and take-off site.
Kemah or Galveston would be a better day trip though. Also consider Armand Bayou Nature Center near Clear Lake City. It's a beautiful area and is nice to just walk around, provided you're not there in the summer. It doesn't get a lot of attention though.

I have been to the Space Center only once and I have never returned. As pointed out already, it is geared for kids and an adult will unlikely be impressed.

Travel Tips for Houston

I moved here from NYC for work reasons. I've had the best time of my life. The people have been great and I've done alot of fun things. Some of my favorite things are the area around Rice University and downtown.

Morgan's Point (La Porte, E-SE Houston)

by XenoHumph

Morgan's Point is a small promontary on Galveston Bay located where Buffalo Bayou (at this stage the Ship Channel) enters Galveston Bay, on the Southern side of the channel. It is actually pretty high (for Houston!) above Galveston Bay shoreline with a certain and noticeable drop towards the shore! This location allows for the area to be relatively windy and less hot in the summer than most places in Houston. Morgan's point proper is actually a nice place to look at huge tankers passing by, and is popular for fishing.

It was chosen at the beginning of the XXth century by wealthy Houstonian to build their fancy summer houses. There are still a few of these to be seen along Galveston Bay, just South of Morgan's Point, on Bay Ridge Road:
311 Bay Ridge Rd: 1928, built by John F. Staub
431 bay Ridge Rd:1928, built by Joseph Finger
515 Bay Ridge Rd: 1928, built by Alfred C. Finn (this picture), servants quarter on the other side of the road.
[Info from the book "Houston Architectural guide" by the American Institute Architects, Houston]

Bay Ridge road is a nice place to bicycle or walk as traffic is rare.

A Sushi Evolution

by MarvintheMartian about Blue Fish

Great sushi at a great price.

Just tick or number the list you're given when you're ready. They have Sashami, Sushi Rolls, Handrolls and everything else you'd normally expect.

A more detailed review is at the website below. They also have an item called Deep Fried Madness.

It's a great piece of sushi fusion!

Casual sandwiches

by monicarc about Dry Creek

Dry Creek is a really little, cute sandwich/salad type place, right down the road from the really cool bar its related to, Onion Creek. However, Dry Creek is byob. It has really great outdoor seating and just a cool, laid back interior. Plus, two can basically eat for $20.00. The little Mexico Hamburger was dripping in avocados!!!

Being the biggest museum in the Houston Museum District, as well as the city, the Houston Museum of Natural Science is one the city's most popular tourist atttractions.

Throughout the year there are also may interesting temporary exhibits on display as well. But the Museum of Natural Science is more than just a museum! There is also an IMAX theater, the Burke-Baker Planetarium, and the Cockrell Butterfly Center, which is a huge rainforest-like natural exhibit that has thousands of butterflies and insects on display as if in their own natural enviornment. The museum is open 7 days a week, everyday of the year except Thanksgiving & Christmas Day. Admission to the permanent exhibits is $8 for adults, $4 for children, and admission to the other areas of the museum varies. Check out their website for exact pricing.
