Neighbourhood
“The first indoor stadium to ever be created anywhere. Once home to the Astros baseball team, as well as the former site of the annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, it is no longer in use but is still worth seeing if in the area. Often you will see it anyway if you are going to conventions or events that are often held nearby.”
