Houston Hobby Airport Guide

Rather bizarrely, many visitors to Houston are medical tourists who come for treatment at the world’s top medical centres. If you are a healthier visitor you should consider getting the HoustonPASS which will entitle you to free or reduced admission prices to some of the city’s top attractions. Use it to visit and tour the Space Center, the aquarium, the zoo or the Natural Science Center, all of which are entertaining for all ages. The city is also host to one of the most unusual festivals, the Art Car Festival which takes place in May each year. Cars are dressed up or remodelled to look like anything from wild animals to buildings and all are fully roadworthy.
