Houston Museum of Natural Science

DAY 1

GO MUSEUM HOPPING

Visit the Houston Museum of Natural Science and browse over a dozen permanent exhibits that covers topics from astronomy to palaeontology. Explore the wonders of the universe and go stargazing at the Burke Baker Planetarium. Pop by the Wortham Giant Screen Theatre and walk with dinosaurs and explore volcanoes. Then take a walk on the “not-too-wild” side at the Cockrell Butterfly Center before making a stop at the National Museum of Fine Arts for exhibits including Spanish colonial paintings and the history of photography. Browse through the museum’s permanent collection that include antiquities, Asian Art and photography. Next head to Houston’s Chinatown for the ubiquitous seafood boil experience, but with a Viet-Cajun twist. One of the best in Houston, the Cajun Kitchen serves up the freshest seafood boiled in its signature seasoning.

DAY 2

HOUSTON, WE HAVE A WINNER

One of Houston’s top attractions, the Space Center is a learning hub for space exploration and the official visitor centre for the NASA Johnson Space Center. Look out for the Starship Gallery, which traces the progression of human space exploration. Book the Level 9 Tour for an unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the real world of NASA. Head to Houston’s Downtown Aquarium next. Part attraction and part restaurant, the complex boasts a Ferris wheel, an aquatic carousel and a white tiger exhibit. Settle down for a meal and watch the sea creatures being fed. Look out also for colourful graffiti near the Market Square Park which celebrates life in Houston. Wind down at Frank’s for American comfort food. The family-run restaurant is a firm favourite among the locals.
Cheetah at the Houston Zoo

DAY 3

CREATURE COMFORTS

Start your day with one of Houston’s best breakfast tacos at the Laredo Taqueria. Mexican food at its best, treat yourself to succulent meats wrapped in perfect taco shells and you will be asking for more. Walk off that hearty breakfast at the Houston Zoo, America’s second most visited zoo, and home to some 900 species of animals. Go on a Cheetah Walk, or a White Rhino Encounter to get up close to these wild beasts. It is a great place to appreciate all creatures, big and small. For a spot of retail therapy, make a trip to The Galleria, the largest mall in Texas that houses Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Macy's all under one roof. Dining options include favourites like Shake Shack, 51Fifteen and The Cheesecake Factory.

DAY 4

AUSTIN, HERE I COME

Take a two and a half hours ride out of Houston to visit Austin, the state capital of Texas. Visit the Texas State Capitol, the seat of government which also houses the offices and chambers of the Texas Legislature and the Governor of Texas. The building is designed in the style of Renaissance Revival and modelled after the national Capitol in Washington. Head to the Lady Bird Lake for some kayaking or river-boating. But if you prefer to stay on land, there is a 16-kilometre trail around the Lake that is perfect for hiking and biking. The Inner Space Cavern, one of the best preserved caves in Texas, is another must-visit. Hidden for over 10,000 years, the cave holds evidence from pre-historic age. Call ahead to book a tour, especially during the peak season.
M-line trolley in Dallas

DAY 5

ROAD TRIP TO DALLAS

Four hours by road from Houston is the city of Dallas. Head straight to the Sixth Floor Museum, located on the sixth floor of the Dallas County Administration Building. Steeped in history, the museum chronicles the life and times of President John F Kennedy. It is also reportedly the very spot from which Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated President Kennedy in 1963. And of course, experience horse-riding, Dallas style. Get a taste of authentic ranch living and take a quick lesson before you head out with experienced guides. Remember to hop on the M-Line or the McKinney Avenue Trolley, a free service for commuters. You can hop on or off anywhere along the 8-kilometre track, just look out for the round maroon sign with the words “M-Line Trolley”.

DAY 6

CELEBRATE LIFE IN NEW ORLEANS

Make a trip to New Orleans and get ready to greet an alligator or two, as you explore mysterious swamps and bayous. You will be taken on an airboat, a unique vessel designed to glide in mere inches of water - a thrill ride like no other. The New Orleans Museum of Art or NOMA is the city’s grand dame of over a 100 years of age with an impressive collection of almost 40,000 artefacts ranging from American Art to Japanese works. Look out for the stunning sculptures at the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden. Finally, wind down at Frenchmen Street and soak in the unique vibes of New Orleans. Wander the alleys for the city’s best live music, some great food, and an unparalleled street scene.
