rice village
Submitted by Kian Ti Yu from San Marino on 05-22-2015
Question:

Is the Rice Village within walking distance to the Best Western in 6700 Main Street? If not, are there restaurants within walking distance of that hotel?

Answer:

Hi Kian Ti Yu,

Good news, your hotel is right along the Light Rail stop (you'll get on at Fannin and University Blvd, called the Dryden/TMC stop).  You can hop on the Light Rail and ride towards Downtown to access a ton of dining and nightlife options.  I recommend walking up to Market Square Park to check out Barnaby's or Treebeard's or walk over towards Green Street area to try out Guadalajara Del Centro, III Forks or McCormick and Schmicks.

Hope this helps,

Veronica

events on june 16-18 ,2015
Submitted by Rosi from Huntsville Texas on 05-17-2015
Question:

Hi V! My daughter is having out of state company arrive on June 15th. I wanted to spend the night and show her a good time the next day june 16th or possibly two days. My daughter and her friend are in the 16-19 yr of age. What can we do?! Please help. R

Answer:

Hi Rosi,

It'll be a little rainy when your company is in town, so I suggest inside activities, like shopping (The Galleria is a great choice) or seeing museums (Houston Museum of Natural Science is fun for all ages). If the weather clears up, I highly suggest checking out the Houston Zoo

Be sure to check out our Events Calendar and suggested Itineraries too.

Hope this helps,

Veronica

Family Reunion
Submitted by Cathy Douse-Harris from Pearland, TX 77584 on 05-02-2015
Question:

Veronica, Do you know the amusement place that is located off Sam Houston Parkway near C.E.King Blvd that has a ferris wheel, train ride around a lake, indoor, air conditioned arcade and basketball court. I went there for a work activity several years ago and cannot recall the name of the facility. Thanks Veronica

Answer:
Hi Cathy,

I'm not familiar with this facility. I've done some investigating and can't find something like what you've described. It could be that the facility is now closed. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful!

Finding carnivals
Submitted by Jim McGill from Houston on 05-02-2015
Question:

Veronica, How might I find a list of the active (temporary) Carnival permits in the Houston area? I work with homeless people who frequently want to work for carnivals if they know where they are. Thanks! Jim

Answer:
HI Jim,

I'm not sure about this. You may want to call the Mayor's Office of Special Events to see if they permit such carnivals or another city agency.

Visitors
Submitted by Carlos Valencia from Houston on 04-29-2015
Question:

Hi Veronica, do you know the number aprox of visitors from Mexico that visit Houston during the summer

Answer:
Hi Carlos,

Houston gets roughly 1 million visitors from Mexico each year. However, those aren't broken down by season. We do know that many people travel to Houston during the summer, from elsewhere in Texas and abroad.

Thanks!

outdoor
Submitted by philip from houston on 04-29-2015
Question:

My wife and I are looking for an outdoor event to attend sunday, May 3. Preferably an outdoor concert, festival or activity. Something that has to do with grass, trees, wearing flip flops, and fun.

Answer:

Philip,

Thanks for your question! I took the liberty of searching that weekend on our calendar of events and found this list.  There are some great options including heading down to Kemah for the International Beer Fest or to Buffalo Bayou for the 15th Annual Houston Dragon Boat Festival, catch a concert at the outdoor Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion,  Saint Arnold Brewing Company for the Santo De Mayo 5K, or eat crawfish at the Texas Crawfish & Music Festival.

I hope that helps and enjoy your weekend!

Veronica
