Moving to Metro Houston can be quite an adventure, especially if you have never visited or lived here in the past. There are so many things to see and do that if you have a job waiting for you, maybe you should schedule your first day for a week or two after your move if you can afford to do so. This way, you can spend some time getting to know the city. You can visit all of the local attractions, learn how to find your way around town and get more comfortable with the area before you actually settle down and get to work.
Fun Family Activities
Once you have arrived at your new home and you have a few days to explore the area, you are probably going to be looking for plenty of family-friendly activities, especially if you have young children. Luckily, you have definitely come to the right place to find activities that the entire family will enjoy. One of your first stops should be Space Center Houston, where you will learn everything you ever wanted to know about the history of the United States space program. You can take a tram tour around the Johnson Space Center and sit in models of various space craft, including a space shuttle, and see suits that were worn by NASA astronauts. There is even a space-themed play area for children.
Another fun activity for the whole family is the Children’s Museum of Houston. After moving to Metro Houston, you really should check this place out. Don’t let the name fool you, because there are exhibits here that are going to be interesting to all ages, and adults and children alike will be amazed at the things they see and learn, including nanotechnology, art and various inventions and how they work. There is an awesome play area, and even a café with plenty of menu options.
While you are exploring the area, don’t forget to take a trip to the Houston Zoo, where you will find many wonderful exhibits with wild cats, primates, reptiles, birds and a whole lot more. Here you will find a children’s water park, a beautiful animal-themed carousel (located right at the entrance), and an aquarium with 23 different exhibits, including jellyfish from the South Pacific.
Moving can be a really stressful thing, and it is nice to be able to take some time after the move to just relax and get to know your new surroundings. With so many fun things for everyone in the family to do, you won’t have much time to sit still because your family is going to want to check out these and many other attractions after moving to Metro Houston.
