Traveling Outside of Houston, Texas

Throughout my whole journey from Houston, TX to Galveston, TX here are a few tips you should think about before heading out. In this post I will include most of the places I have been to and what I have thought about the place.

Travel Time

Houston to Galveston, Texas will take about a 55min drive using Interstate-45 highway in one day.


Keep track of what time zone you are in, including the time zones of local states through https://time.gov/ , an official United States of America resource.

Nasa's Museum near Houston!

1601 E NASA Pkwy, Houston, TX 77058, USA


Visiting Space Center Houston you will be able to see several devices, options, and things astronauts had to go in, out, and use along their journey.


However I recommend that you read the bolded prompt below before registering.


In order to enter you must have your tickets reserved at least 2 days in advanced. If you want to visit Mission Control, please make sure to pay for those tram tickets as you are ordering them at https://spacecenter.org/


However I recommend that you read the bolded prompt below before registering.


I RECOMMEND THAT YOU BRING WATER BOTTLES because their water is EXPENSIVE in their food court!!! Ranging from $10.00 to $1.50 per bottle plus tax!


PLEASE NOTE: GOPROS, CAMERAS WITH LENSES UP TO 50-100MM, AND IPHONES ARE ALLOWED THROUGH SECURITY!


The food tastes very average as if you are going to the airport. In order to order food in their food court you will have to go to their kiosk in the center of the food court.


While we were there you will witness groups of children and teens learn about space exploration. Please be respectful and give them some space as some may be nervous.


Throughout the whole self guided tour, as of June 2023 it was very humid.

James Webb Telescope

1:41 PM Central Standard Time

1601 E NASA Pkwy, Houston, TX 77058, USA


Throughout the until 3:45pm Central Standard Time. Nasa will have their employees do a presentation on the James Webb Space Telescope Flyby. Not only will it just be about how the telescope works but it will include their latest images they have received from the telescope.


If you ask me technical wise, their speakers when they presented the presentation wasn't that great but it was audible. And there are videos they will show to help you understand about the telescope provided by NASA themselves.

Nasa Souvenir Shop

2:24 PM Central Standard Time

1601 E NASA Pkwy, Houston, TX 77058, USA


Once you have decided that you are done checking all around Space Center Houston, make sure to check out the Souvenir Shop.


The prices range from as little as $7 key chains to $1,000 space telescope models. Please keep an eye on your kids because majority of these souvenirs are glass.

Howdy Galveston Texas!

2:59 PM Central Standard Time

Galveston, Texas, USA

Gulf Coast of Mexico, Texas, USA


Passing along by the Gulf Coast of Mexico in Galveston, Texas, USA!


In Galveston, Texas, USA, as a visitor you will have to pay for parking. It will be crowded because they have conferences and meetings happening very frequently.


In order to enter the recreational beach, I hadn't went into their recreational beach area. But as far as I can recall you will need to pre-register a spot or pay at the gate of entrance.


So if you just want to visit Galveston, Texas by doing a drive by. It's great. However it is very hard to find a parking spot and gasoline is a tad bit expensive around $3.40-3.59 USD.
