The Space City

Houston in general

Houston is the largest city in the state of Texas. Founded in 1836 by the Allen brothers, it was named after General Sam Houston, who led the Texas army to victory against the Mexicans. Although Houston is around 100 kilometers from the Gulf of Mexico, the metropolis has one of the largest seaports in the United States. When exploring the museum district, you can choose from 12 free museums. In the renowned Museum of Fine Arts, for example, more than 63,000 works are shown on around 300,000 square meters. The zoo with 4,500 exotic animals and the Japanese garden are located in the nearby Herrmann Park. In the associated Miller Outdoor Theater, you can enjoy a picnic and watch free theater and music performances. Sam Houston Park is the city's oldest park, home to seven historic residential buildings and a small wooden church, and offers breathtaking views of the skyline with the award-winning Chase Tower and William Tower. You should not miss the art museum "The Menil Collection" designed by Renzo Piano!
