Getting There

The Airbnb is located in Galveston. The closest major airport is William P. Hobby Airport located in Houston, about 45 minutest away. If you are flying, please plan to fly into this airport if possible. The George Bush Intercontinential Airport is also in Houston, but further away and less convenient.

We will be arranging carpools for those who need it and will do our best to pick up everyone. We cannot guarantee pickups from George Bush Airport but we will try to make it work for everyone. Please fill out the Google form and let us know where you are coming from, how you are arriving, and if you will need any transportation assistance (ie: airport pickup).

*If you are flying and need a carpool to/from the airport, please try your best to arrive before 5pm on 5/24 (the earlier the better on Friday, as it is a holiday weekend) and after 12pm on 5/27.

Food / Lodging

Most meals will be provided and we will cook together in the house (with the exclusion of one dinner when we eat out at a restaurant as a group). If you have dietary requirements (e.g. vegetarian), please let us know on the Google form.

The house sleeps up to 20 on beds. Most people will have to share a bed, and rooms will be separated men/women. Linens and towels will be provided. A few people may need to sleep on air mattresses/couches, so if you are willing to sleep somewhere other than a bed, or prefer not to share, please let us know in the Google form.

Cost / Registration / Payment / Refunds


DiscoveryBound is subsidizing this event, so the cost is only $150 per person, which covers lodging for three nights and all food for the weekend, with the exception of one dinner where we will eat out at a restaurant.

While the NASA tour is free, entrance to the Houston Space Center is $30 per person and is not included in the weekend registration.
