A March 1995 trip
to Houston by camera-gal
Quote: Houston has so many great attractions for the whole family. The weather is great, but watch out because the city is so big!
The Houston Zoo is great fun for the kids. It's right next to the park so don't forget to bring your lunch and enjoy the show.
Six Flags Astroworld has superb rollercoasters that'll scare even the bravest of adults. Animated characters come alive to greet youngsters.
Space Center Houston is where you learn about how it is to live in a space shuttle and see where mission control works.
Papasita's Cantina is the real stuff. It's *authentic* Mexican food.

There are 10 other roller-coasters to keep you occupied in the down-time. Smaller kids will enjoy the "kids-only" portion of the theme park. While you're gobbling down cotton candy and greasy park food Warner Brothers cartoon characters glide by. Have your picture taken with Tweety or Daffy or Bugs. Great fun!

The Space Center is the visitor's part of the Johnson Space Center.
You'll get to see moon rocks and space probes. Climb inside real astronaut space bunks and learn how the shower, eat and sleep. After you take a short ride on the tram, you can go behind the scenes of NASA's mission control. The space center is open 7 days a week.

Attraction | "The Houston Zoo"
The Houston Zoo today has a wide range of animals and shows to keep young ones and old ones educated and entertained. Watch your step as you wander through the zoo because you might just step on some of the wildlife. Colorful peacocks graze the area and so do other little critters.
The zoo's open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily
