Okay. Seriously. DO NOT skip this step. We saved a TON of money on our activities during our trip to Houston by using the CityPASS. The CityPASS includes admission to:
- Houston Downtown Aquarium
- Space Center Houston
- Houston Museum of Natural Science
- Houston Zoo OR Museum of Fine Arts
- Kemah Boardwalk OR Children’s Museum Houston
We seriously saved almost 50% on the total cost of our visits to the aquarium, Space Center, Museum of Natural Science, and the Zoo! This was such a fantastic value. So, whatever you do, if you are planning on visiting any of the aforementioned attractions in Houston, take advantage of the CityPASS.
Take advantage of discounted gift cards and cashback apps to get more bang for your buck. You know I’m always going to remind you all to use those cash back apps and purchase gift cards from retailers such as Sam’s Club at a discounted rate. This is an easy way to cut back on costs for food and activities.
Book your trip with a rewards credit card! If you’re going to spend all of this money on a vacation, you might as well use a credit card that offers rewards so you can get a little something back in return. Makes sense right?
Houston, Texas is a really great location for a family vacation. There is so much to do and so much to see! And the best part is, you don’t even have to break the bank to pull off this exciting trip!
