Space Center Houston is located halfway between Houston and Galveston. The NASA Johnson Space Center is a must-see and has more than a day’s worth of discoveries – see rocks brought back from the moon, real astronaut suits, a gigantic space shuttle and the mission control center.

There's a reason so many sports fans flock to Houston.

Of course, you can also catch the legendary Houston Rockets (NBA) in action as well.
In the off-season, visit Sam Houston Race Park and cheer your favorite horse all the way around the track. Visit the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo when it comes to town every February and watch the festive atmosphere take over Houston with bull riding, concerts and more.

Weather in Houston

When considering an electricity plan for your home, it helps to know your usage habits and where you like to set the thermostat during the hotter and cooler months, so you can pick a plan that helps you save the most when you use the most.

Summer is consistently hot in Houston, with average temperatures in the mid-90s throughout June and July. During these months, residents can see increased electricity usage with more demand on their air conditioners. January tends to be the coolest month of the year, with temperatures dipping into the low 40s. With our energy usage tools, you can keep an eye on your usage throughout the year and even get alerts when you're using more than normal to heat your home or keep cool.
