Houston is the largest city in Texas and the fourth most populous city in the nation. It's located just off Trinity Bay and Lake Houston, giving the area a gorgeous, waterfront view. If you're heading to Houston on business or for pleasure, you can take some time to enjoy all this metropolis has to offer. The quickest and most convenient way is by Houston rental car. The city is structured like a big wheel with downtown in the center. Highways branch off to create the spokes, and the Loop Freeway acts as the edge of the wheel. As such, navigating is fairly simple. As you zip around Houston in your rental, make sure to stop at these hot spots.
You won't want to miss this Water Wall. The site has a multi-story cylindrical fountain structure. Water pours down the sides to create a stunning curtain of liquid. Every minute, the wall drops 11,000 gallons of water - it's like a miniature Niagara Falls. Just be ready for the noise volume, as all that water is sure to produce a loud sound.
Seated near the shores of Clear Lake is Space Center Houston, which is the visitor's area of NASA's Johnson Space Center. The center will offer you a look into NASA missions and findings, giving you a glimpse of outer space. For instance, on Fridays, the museum brings in astronauts to give a presentation, and you can watch science shows explaining the theories behind space travel. The center focuses on educating visitors by sharing stories, images and items all to do with NASA. It's the perfect stop on your trip for kids. Because the center is on the south side of the city, you'll need to take your Houston rental car from the airport.
