Now that the Houston Astros are the ALDS champs, they move one step closer to a repeat of last year’s epic World Series Win. With the ALCS series tied one game apiece against the Boston Red Sox, what better way to show that Astros spirit than by snapping a selfie next to seven awesome murals around this Texas town?

With games 3, 4, and 5 of the series coming back to Minute Maid Park starting Tuesday, October 16, there’s no better time to do a little sightseeing and take a photo next to some of the beautiful murals around town highlighting this beloved team and players. If you happen to be one of the lucky few with tickets, you can scratch three of those murals off your bucket list as they are perfectly displayed inside Minute Maid.
