Home to a smattering of cultural influences, Houston is a massive city with loads of personality. Whether you’re browsing the market in Chinatown, finding inner peace at the magnificent BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, or feeding your inner carnivore with piles of local barbecue and brisket, Houston’s diversity has something to please everyone. Even the most adventurous urban explorers can have a field day in this city, due to the mind-blowing tunnel system that links 95 full city blocks just 20 feet below the streets.

One of the biggest attractions of Houston is NASA’s Johnson Space Center, home to the famous Mission Control Center and loads of fascinating exhibits about America’s exploration of space. A short drive down I-45 will bring you to the city of Galveston, where you’ll find the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, packed with rides, carnival games, shops, seafood restaurants, and boardwalks offering great views of the Gulf of Mexico. Galveston is also home to Moody Gardens, known for its three giant glass pyramids containing fascinating wildlife exhibits (Aquarium, Rainforest, and Discovery).
