Transcript Spring Break Houston Style Houston was not anything like South Padre Island or Cancun, but it provided students with plenty to do over Spring Break. From museums and movie theaters to the Galleria and AstroWorld, Houston was definitely not a humdrum city. Spring Break was an excellent time to soak up some culture by visiting Houston's museum district, as many museums were located just minutes away from UH near the Texas Medical Center. Among them was the Museum of Natural Science. "We have many things for college students to visit, including the Imax Theater, Rock Laser shows and 18 permanent exhibit halls," said Mike Olson, public relations manager for Museum of Natural Sci ence. Imax was presenting two features: Tropical Rainforest and Fires of Kuwait. On Friday and Saturday evenings, the Burke Baker Planetarium presented a laser light show set to music from artists including Pink Floyd, Depeche Mode and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Another big attraction during Spring Break was AstroWorld's Spring Break-Out v93. AstroWorld featured a sports extravaganza in the lagoon area of the park, where spring breakers could snow-ski, rock-climb, video-surf, inline skate and still enjoy the rides. Students did not have to go to Houston's many attractions to have fun when they had the Galleria, many movie the aters and local pools nearby. The Galleria offered a kaleidoscope of shops, a skating rink and three theaters. Whether shopping, ice-skating, going to the movies or just people- watching, the Galleria had a lot to offer. Movie-going was also a popular Spring Break pastime. Some of the movies showing through Spring Break included Fire In The Sky The Crying Game and Mad Dog and Glory Probably the most popular thing to do during Spring Break was to work on that summer tan and the best place was at a local pool. Houston's weather, although unpredictable, provided Spring Breakers with summer-like temperatures to hone that glowing, bronzed look. -Joanna Davila From museums and movie theaters to the Galleria and AstroWorld, Houston was definitely not a humdrum city. In addition to exploring some of Houston's main entertainment attractions, students found time to spend time with friends during a long game of basketball. Playing sports was a hot recreational activity that students enjoyed during a week of no classes, homework, tests or papers. Houstonian Photo. 36mmmStudent Life Spring Break•••37
