Clear Lake, Seabrook, Kemah, and League City Professional Review and Guide
"The launching of Sputnik also launched America’s space program and triggered the construction of the NASA/Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center. Visitors now access some portions of that facility via Space Center Houston, a neighboring $70-million educational/ entertainment project that’s become one of the most popular visitor attractions in the state. After investigating the exploration of space, you can challenge some new frontiers on your own.
A few miles away is nature at its most primitive, a wilderness bayou seemingly untouched by civilization, and almost across the road you’ll find the boating and water fun capital of Texas, Clear Lake. That 2,418-acre water playground sports more marinas, boat slips, and boats than any other Lone Star lake. Walking tour maps, available in several shops and cafes, lead you to more than two dozen historic sites, and both tearooms and antiques shops seem growth industries. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Houston. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
