This is definitely the best place that I've ever visit here in Texas. This beautiful place has an unforgettable environment, and you will never be satisfied visiting it just once. I hope you go the with your family, friends or your loved ones and have fun.
International Airport Dallas / Forth Worth is between Dallas and Fort Worth in the state of Texas. It is connected to both cities by various land transport, composed of four main terminals (A, B, C and E) and contains extensive shopping and dining areas which, together with their wide corridors, makes the time between flights pass by. It is an important venue for airlines such as American Airlines, United Airlines, British Airways and is one of the busiest airports in North America, as it has a lot of domestic flights and international connections to and from Europe, Latin America and Asia.
The most interesting things about San Antonio lie in the fusion of Texan and Mexican culture. For example, Tex-Mex cuisine is widely available here: chili con carne, fajitas, burritos ... you can try these specialties at the market, El Mercado, west of downtown. Full of color and life, you'll see merchants in both sombreros and cowboy hats. A great place to visit with a margarita in one hand and a plate of nachos in the other!
This center can be visited just like the Kennedy Space center at Cape Canaveral. It has a museum, visit the operations center, where you can see the groundstaff working away through the glass screen with the aerotransbordadores and weightlessness huge room with a giant sealed hatch. You move through the facilities with a kind of vehicle.
The Battle of the Alamo was a 13-day siege from February 23 until the final assault of March 6, 1836. The Mexican army fought against a secessionist Texan militia made up mostly of American colonists who were basically naturalized Mexicans. When the Mexican troops arrived, the Texans dug into the Alamo. The defenders couldn't hold them off and the attackers penetrated the walls, killing all inside. There aer still many myths and counter-myths surrounding the battle of the Alamo, both in favor and against the Texans and Mexicans. Today, it's a historical monument and is a must in San Antonio. Opening hours are Monday to Saturday 9:00 AM tO 5:30 PM, and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM
The unique Pioneer Plaza, situated in the center of Dallas, is where you can find the largest bronze statue in the world. It represents (very realistically) American cowboys driving cattle. The rest of the Plaza is without interest: ten minutes, some pictures and you are ready to go. Incidentally, Pioneer Square has a small parking.
My parents came here with my husband and I in late March. The tulips were in full bloom, and the trees were just starting to flower! It was a little crowded, even for a weekday, so we were glad we went early. Our only regret was not bringing our lunch with us! Plenty of picnic areas, and photo opportunities. The staff was super friendly, and it was so fun to explore the landscape! They have paved paths, and ramps so every garden was accessible. Wear some good walking shoes, and bring water and sunscreen!
A real business district, Houston's Downtown is like a succession of gigantic skyscrapers decorated with American flags. Something a bit unusual: you can go through this area in the usual way (the streets) or via the underground galleries built to spare locals from the painful summer sun. If the city itself does not exactly ooze interest, do not miss the view from the top of the JP Morgan Chase Tower, the tallest tower in Texas.
An essential stop on Route 66 in the U.S. is on the side of the highway passing through Amarillo (Texas). It's a curious visit. There are ten Cadillacs half-buried and covered in graffiti. It was an initiative of a group of artists in the 70's who turned it into a place of pilgrimage for tourists, who could also participate in the "work". Some cars and spray cans are easy to find to add your particular note. It's a little nerdy, but you'll always be sorry if you don't stop for 5 minutes.
The Dealey Plaza is a landmark in the city of Dallas because that's where JFK died in 1963. The square, a green space with grass and trees, is traversed by three streets: Commerce Street, Main Street and Elm Street. It's in between Houston Street and Triple Bypass Highway. In the same square there's also '"The sixth floor museum", from which the former U.S. was shot. As a curiosity, note that on the road they have marked the point where JFK was shot, although this is best seen in the accompanying video.
Pioneer Memorial Log House Museum is located in downtown Houston and was built in 1936. Today it is open in the evenings to give educational and historical tours by the teachers. It also offers special exhibitions for school children and citizens of Houston.
The city of Houston Texas is the fourth most populous city in the US. It has a business centre associated with the oil industry and one of the country's largest medical centres. But it also offers its residents and visitors a lot of great culture. The Museum of Fine Arts, MFAH, is one of those spectacular attractions of the rich state. This art space was founded in 1900 and has a collection of over 56,000 works that embrace art from antiquity to contemporary. The building is in itself a work of art. It's modern, spacious and beautifully designed. It's in the city's art corridor, near the Museum of Natural Arts, the Children's Museum and the City Zoo. The museum also has a collection of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism with works by Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Edouard Vuillard. It also has streams with painters like Pablo Picasso and Fernand Léger. It's a must-visit while in Houston and it's very enjoyable, I definitely recommend it.
In the center of the city stands the imposing Houston Minute Maid Park. No it's not a big park, it's a baseball stadium, funded by the Coca-Cola Company. It features a sunroof to maintain a comfortable temperature at all times. The local team is the Houston Astros, and when one of the players hits a home run, a little steam engine make a celebratory loop of 200m around the field!
This place is great, you can do anything: eat, look in the giant aquarium and see the sharks, white tigers, and huge snakes. There are also rides like the ferris wheel where you can see fantastic views of the city. I highly recommend this place!
is like being in a western movie, here you find restaurants with grilled meats, sweets, gifts. If you want you can see a rodeo, watch them transport oxen, ride a mechanical bull, go through a maze, children ride horses, calezas, and there is music. I recommend it ... it was a fantastic experience and my best birthday
The Crow Collection is a free gallery in the Arts District showing several pieces of Asian art. Outside of the building, a pair of Fu Dogs stand watch. There is also one of the oldest statues in the museum by the entry stairs that lingers amidst a beautiful and tranquil fountain. There are tables and chairs in the courtyard where many business people and visitors will sit and enjoy their lunch. No photography is allowed inside of the museum.
A receptionist will give you a map and tell about any temporary galleries they have on display. In the first large room, you will see beautifully carved gates where they also hold Yoga classes. The vases and bowls on display date back prior to the life of Jesus. Carvings of jade are magnificent in their lighted display cases. One can make it through in about an hour, even if you linger to read the placards. It is definitely a great stop to get out of the heat and take a moment to appreciate artists of long ago.
If you bump into three, four or ten people carrying musical instruments on the street, it is because from about eight in the evening, most of the bars in the area, offer live music. You can go walking and poking your nose in or putting your ear to see what catches your eye and then stay. In summer with some warm weather also take the opportunity for outdoor performances.
Lake Travis is a huge reservoir that has both a practical and a recreational purpose. It generates electricity, provides a water supply and flood control, and it also used for water sports. To enjoy a breathtaking view of the sunset over the water, take a break in the complex of bars and restaurants nearby. We wanted a bit of Texas style, so we ordered nachos and margaritas! As a useful tip, always take your ID card with you as bars are very strict about checking for ID.
