It's a common misconception that the city of Houston is named after the Houston Rockets basketball team. The truth is far stranger. The city is actually named in honor of Sam Houston, a key player in Texas's bid for statehood. The Lone Star State as we know it today would not have been possible if Houston hadn't led the Texas Revolution and subsequently assumed office as the Republic of Texas's first and third president.

Houston?both the city and the man?is the focus of the Sam Houston Memorial Museum. Located on 15 acres of the leader's own estate, the sprawling museum lets visitors learn about Houston's life and accomplishments via artifacts, manuscripts, and even buildings he frequented. Houston's hunting lodge along with the Steamboat House have been moved to the museum grounds from their original locations, and a replica of his kitchen was hand-built with period tools on the same spot as the original. In the rotunda building, visitors can examine personal effects and articles of clothing to get a feel for what Houston was like as a person. Though the museum is open six days a week year-round, the summer months are perhaps the best time to visit, as the museum offers free tours twice daily with paid admission.

Weekend cruises along the lake. The occasional night fishing trip. While many people would like to own a boat for those reasons, the expenses of maintaining and storing a boat year-round can be daunting. Carefree Boat Rental eliminates the tedious bits of boat ownership by lending its well-maintained fleet to members by the hour. Inspected weekly by a dock staff using a 50-point checklist, each boat is also equipped with US Coast Guard-required safety equipment such as flares, approved flotation devices, and an emergency stash of Cheetos. The crew also takes care of regular maintenance, such as oil changes, hull cleaning, and annual bottom painting.

Most people who look at a hose think of watering plants or maybe putting out fires, but Franky Zapata thinks of flying. Inspired, he designed the Flyboard, an over-water aerial device capable of launching its rider up to 45 feet in the air with jets of pure water that gush from a large, high-tech hose strapped to a buoyant board. For added control, each water-propulsion craft comes equipped with handheld nozzles that can control 10% of the thrust.

Now, South Texas Flyboard gives folks the chance to experience thrilling bird?s-eye views of Lake Conroe. After a brief instructional lesson, customers can strap into the board?s pre-attached boots and take to the skies during an adrenaline-fueled ride.

Thanks to Lone Star FlyBoard, 5-15 minutes is all it takes for a person to learn how to fly. On Lake Conroe, these fliers soar to up to 35 feet in the air, skim along the water's surface, or dive into the lake itself. The secret to this supernatural ability lies at the end of a 55-foot hose, which pumps water at high pressure to send flyers soaring through the air. This FlyBoard system relies on simple controls, which people use to maneuver with the ease of the world's most confident dolphins. Certified instructors cover the essentials prior to flights.
