Houston – outer space and much more

Houston has a rather brief history - it was founded in 1837 by two brothers who named the city after the Texas general Sam Houston. Enjoy the charming ambience of the Houston harbour and the beautiful beaches in the region. Naturally, a major feature of your trip will surely be a visit to the aerospace centre. For several decades, Houston has been closely linked to the space program of the United States – a clue as to why the city is nicknamed "Space City".
