Have a question about what to do, where to eat or anything else pertaining to your visit to Houston? Just Ask Veronica. She has the answers to your queries about H-Town.
looking at having an event in Houston in Sept and I need to find Chinese cultural entertainment (e.g. dragon dancers) -- can you recommend whre I can go to find such talent?
I think I can recommend someone for you Todd!
The folks at J&D Entertainment offer a wide variety of entertainment options. I'm pretty sure they can work with you on this! You might also try Dance of Asian America, a local group that preserves the traditions of Asian dance.
Hi Veronica. My boy friend and I will stop at Houston on our way to Alaska. We will arrive at G.Bush International Airport at 05:21 and leaving from that same airporta at 15:18. Is it woth the effort to travel to Galveston Island? If not, what would be the absolut MUST SEE places we should visit in such short time. Thanks for any help we can get, Carolina and Javier.
Galveston is about 1.5 hours away from the airport. It's a lot of driving, plus the time it takes to rent a car, but it's definitely up to you!
If you are interested in sticking to Houston, I'd suggest the Museum District (HMNS and MFAH are great choices). The Downtown Aquarium is always a fun spot, the Houston Zoo or Space Center top the list.
Hope this helps,

Hi Veronica, My girlfriend is only available on Sundays and Mondays. What do you recommend to do on a Sunday night? Is there some place to go dancing on SUnday night? Thank you very much
Of course! I suggest you look into Sambuca for good food and good jazz. Wild West actually has dance instructors there Sunday afternoons if you're looking for a lesson. Or if you're looking for more of a club environment, check out Grooves.
Hope this helps,
can you provide reliable tourist transit information as far as what transit options are available to get to (and from) Galvestopn from downtown Houston or the George Bush International airport? I ask as me and family have recently booked a Carnival 5 day cruise October 5th and am just wondering what options are available as far as transit options from Houston. While we could rely on the Carnival cruise for cruise transfers from the airport, we would like to spend a day or two in the downtown Houston area before embarking on our cruise. Anyways any suggestions you can provide would be most appreciative. PS is it possible to request via US Postal service a Visitors catalog and such?
While you're in Houston, I'd recommend staying in Downtown so you can use the light rail to help get around. Hotel Icon, Magnolia and Sam Houston Hotel are all near the light rail too. Definitely check out Market Square park for dining and nightlife options while you're in town. The Downtown Aquarium is a must-see in downtown and the Museum District and Houston Zoo are just a short ride down the light rail too.
Hope this helps!

Is there a dog park near the Galleria in Houston Texas
The closest dog park to the Galleria area is the Danny Jackson Park, just south of 59. Here's a roundup of the major parks around the city. Hope it helps!

Myself and a buddy will be in Houston on 4th August and are looking to play a round of golf. Are there any courses close to the Holiday Inn on JFK BLVD, and do any of them hire Golf clubs? Thank you, Ed
Cypresswood Golf Club or Tour 18 Golf are both about15 minutes away from your hotel, and a beautiful courses. Yes, rental clubs are available at both courses - I'd call ahead and ask for the rental clubs when you make your tee time.
For other courses around town, check out our golf round up.
My wife and I are staying at the Royal Sonesta by the Galleria for 3 days in August. I do not particularly want to hire a car and have already booked a full day tour to Space center. However we will probably want to visit the Museum district and also eat in the Fondren / South Braeswood area. Can you give me some info on the likely taxi costs to get to and from these areas from our hotel? Thanks
Welcome to Houston! Of course:
Hotel to Space Center: ~33 miles and $75 each way
Hotel to Museum District: ~ 7 miles and $20 each way
Hotel to Fondren/ South Braeswood: ~7 miles and $20 each way
Luckily, the Museum District has 20 museums within walking distance, so that's an option to save on taxi costs.
Hope this helps,
