  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Houston, we have a problem… overpopulation, namely, which is forcing the city out of its boundaries and across the surrounding countryside at an ever increasing rate. That does make for multiple interesting districts, though, as well as a true, full-on big city vibe and absolutely no shortage of things to do, from watching the impressive local soccer team to exploring the ample galleries.

    Not so long ago Houston was just an enterprising idea and a large mud flat, so you wont find much in the way of aged culture, but there’s plenty else to keep you busy. The bizarre ‘Art Car Museum’ is home to plenty of ludicrously colored motors, there’s an exceptional collection of 15,000 assorted works to be found at the Menil Collection, and the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art brings out yet another wacky side to Houston’s soul.

    Of course, you’re almost certainly going to want to check out the Space Center and the rodeo while you’re here, you can explore the extensive exhibits, experience just what it’s like to blast off into space, take part in a number of the everyday tasks astronauts have to undertake when floating outside the atmosphere, and – if you time your trip well – even catch the latest team of astronauts training on the NASA tour.

    In the height of the summer Houston is sweltering, humid and downright difficult to live with at times, but the city’s found a way around it, building a network of underground tunnels between buildings that keep the locals air conditioned and the streets almost bare. If you do venture out, you can track down plenty of slightly surprising World War remnants, including a Holocaust Museum and The Battleship Texas, one of the only remaining American boats to have fought in both the World Wars.

    You probably think of Texan desert and oil moguls when you picture Houston, and while the city has that side, it’s multicultural charms and eclectic attractions are amiable and enticing, and – for those harboring plentiful Wild West fantasies – it’s the perfect gateway to the Texan wilderness, too.
