Saturday fun day
Submitted by Lyd from houston , tx on 03-27-2015

Have any ideas on fun things to do all day and night on a Saturday in downtown Houston, TX?


Hi Lyd,

Here are a few ideas. Take a tour with Discover Houston, take a stroll through Discovery Green, visit the Downtown Aquarium, where the rides are open late. Learn about the city's past at The Heritage Society. Go on a Double Decker Bus Tour. Take a tour of Minute Maid Park where the Houston Astros play. Or take a culinary tour of some of the area restaurants. At night, head to Market Square Historic District for the nightlife scene. 

I hope this helps!

Hi , would a couple of hip seniors fit in at ths continental club on a Friday night?

Hi Gary!

The Continental Club is a great venue and you will absolutely fit in (on any night)! Houston loves "hip seniors" and we're excited that you're joining in on the Friday fun!

Have a great time,

How do I make a reservation for a 90 min boat tour?


Hi there,

You actually don't need to reserve a space for the boat tour. Here is a page of info on the Sam Houston Boat Tours.


Fun Neighborhood/Area?
Submitted by Katie from Chicago on 03-18-2015

Looking for a fun 1-day outing with my teenage daughter - a cool neighborhood or area with boutiques, neat restaurants etc. Thank you!

Hi Katie,

I think you should spend the day on Lower Westheimer in Montrose. Check out this lineup of hotspots along the boulevard! Also you can find some fantastic ideas for family adventures and girlfriend getaways that you guys might enjoy together on our Suggested Itineraries page.

things to do in Houston
Submitted by EVAN DEROUIN from SANTA MONICA on 03-16-2015

Hi Veronica! Quick question - can you recommend the best BBQ in town and also are there any gun ranges in Houston?


Hi Evan,

That's a difficult question to answer since Houston has so many types of BBQ and so many great places! But, if you're looking for traditional Texas BBQ, I recommend checking out Goode Co. Bar-B-Q, Pappas Bar-B-Q. or Killen's. for some delicious grub!

Regarding Gun Ranges, check out Athena Gun Club on the west side of Houston.



off the metro system
Submitted by Deborah Dyer from houston on 03-13-2015

I am at a hotel near the airport and I would like to know if I caught the red metro train system what could I see along the way. Thanks Deb


Hi Deborah,

If you're talking about the Metro Light Rail, here is some information about the Red Line.  It'll take you from north of Downtown, through Downtown, Midtown, the Museum District and down to NRG Center.  However, this isn't accessible from the airport, so you'd need to either take a taxi or a bus from the airport to the light rail stop.

Here is information on Metro's trip planner to help you determien the correct bus based on your time of day, area of town, etc. 

Hope this helps!


souvenir shops
Submitted by Maddy Gray from Houston, Tx on 03-13-2015

So we are looking for funny gifts for some friends. Where should we go?


Hi Maddy,

If you're looking for souvenir shops, check our Funatics in Downtown or Kuhl-Linscomb in the Upper Kirby area.

Hope this helps!


Cab Fare

You can use a site called TaxiFinder.com to determine average cab fare. From Downtown Houston to Bayport Cruise Terminal the average cost is $83 for the 30 mile drive with an average time of 35 minutes.

I hope this helps,


Submitted by Melva Rocio Torres from Odessa on 03-08-2015

What can we do this weekend with 9-12 year old kids .


Hi Melva,

Here's a link to our Events Calendar.  The Houston Livestock and Rodeo is in town until 3/22 - it's a great event for both adults and kids.  

I also recommend you look into buying a Houston CityPASS.  The CityPASS gets you into Houston's top attractions at 50% savings - click here to find out more.

Hope this helps,


Rainy day
Submitted by Shawn from 77381 on 03-07-2015

What's indoor stuff to do between IAH And woodlands? I'm thinking Billiards, arcade, museum, bowling but don't limit yourself. Thanks


Hi Shawn,

In addition to what you've listed, check out Topgolf North or K1 Speed Houston for fun activities. Also, if you're looking for something a little different, swing by the National Museum of Funeral History

Have fun!
