The city of Houston is known throughout the world for many distinctions; however, by far, it has impacted the world of medicine more than anything. In the Medical Center area of Houston, adjacent to Reliant Park, the first heart transplant was performed in the 1960s, and has continued to be a ground-breaking hub in medical exploration, research, application and education. As the population has boomed, the options in housing have increased, giving way particularly, to condo and loft styled living. With medical care and services a few steps away, the convenience of high-rise living contributes to this fast-growing market.
As Houston’s showplace of maritime history and commerce, the Houston Maritime Museum has certainly outdone itself. Fascinating galleries of ship models, a world class collection of navigational tools, interactive programs, and hands-on learning experiences for the kids, make this a great hang-out for families and maritime enthusiasts. Sports fans can cheer from the stands in Reliant Stadium, as the NFL’s Houston Texans set the new standard in football. The Texans are kid-friendly, and provide activities and events that keep the little Texans on their game. Reliant Stadium is a part of the larger Reliant Park, where culture meets sports head on. Nationally known events, including American Idol, and other musical performances, will turn the audience into participants, and get them on their feet dancing. Reliant Park is the largest entertainment and event complex in North America, and there is always something going on.
Catching a ride on the MetroRail train to downtown Houston is an event in itself. An underground tunnel system can be accessed from many buildings downtown, and a wide variety of services enjoyed beneath the Houston surface, in an air-conditioned atmosphere. Kids love it! Before hopping back on the Rail and heading home, stop by the beautiful Discovery Green, an urban area reclaimed and transformed into a city park with playgrounds, fountains, and a putting green.
