Made in Houston - Places

You can call it H-Town, Clutch City or Hustletown - just don’t call it boring. When you visit Houston you’ll realize what happens when world-class arts, booming business, pro sports and award winning cuisine combine. See for yourself why Houston is being touted as the cool capital of the South; why 2.2. million people call this place home; and how, exactly, crawfish can be labeled both “ugly” and “delicious.” Grab a beer with us and pull up a chair - we’re going to give you a taste of what it’s like to belong to the most diverse city in America. We’ve got some clout in outer space too, actually.

Houston, we have a problem – you’re just too epic.

  • NASA Old Mission Control
    This is it. This is the room that got man on the moon 50 years ago, this is the room that solved the problem Apollo 13 had, and the room every astronaut in space called to until 1992. When visiting Space Center Houston, you’re able to take a tram tour of actual NASA facilities – so after looking at rocks brought back from the moon, and even touching a piece of it yourself, walk back into history and over to Old Mission Control. You’ll sit in the same seats that dignitaries, families of astronauts, reporters, and others sat and viewed the incredible brains of NASA at work. And in 2019, Houston is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing with celebrations here at Space Center Houston. more
  • Historic Downtown Houston
    It’s funny to think that somewhere in America there are historic districts, and it’s true, the USA is a young nation, and Houston is even younger. At a fresh 183 years old, though, there’s still a few corners of this city that peer into the past, like Historic Downtown. Historic Downtown sits steps away from the hustle and bustle of major corporate headquarters and our convention center. The skyscrapers of the past adorned with art deco, the old buildings turned into bars and restaurants that you can enjoy, and the park in the middle of it all, Market Square Park, makes you want to walk a little more slowly to appreciate it all. more
  • Saigon House
    You heard Houston was diverse, and that the culinary scene was amazing, but you weren’t quite prepared for the cilantro and garlic butter crawfish in the bowl in front of you. Diversity in Houston transcends demographics, neighbourhoods in town, and cultural celebrations – it’s in the food we eat as well, and Saigon House is the ultimate combination – Vietnamese flavours in a Cajun dish is just the tip of the iceberg. more
