I'd be happy to help. Which airport will you be coming through so I can better point you to nearby areas to visit?

If you're flying into IAH, you can take a cab (about $55) into Downtown.
Head downtown and visit Discovery Green park and The Heritage Society. The Grove is a lovely restaurant inside the park that would be a good lunch spot. You could also explore downtown by downloading audio walking tours--it's a really cool way to learn about the city. From downtown, you can also take the light rail and visit the Museum District and Hermann Park. There are so many lovely places there, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Museum of Natural Science, The Menil Collection and more.
If you want to stay near IAH, there is the National Museum of Funeral History. It's a quirky place whose motto is "everyday above ground is a good one."
Hope this helps!

Hello! I will be visiting Houston from Dec. 25 to Jan. 2 and would like to take a day trip to Galveston during that time, but won't be in a position to rent a car. What is the best way to make the trip? Ideally, I'd like to go in the morning and come back after dinner, but am open to other options. Many thanks, John Williams
There really aren't any public transportation methods of going between Houston and Galveston other than renting a car. You may want to contact the folks at Cool Tours to see if they can accomodate you. Unfortunately there really aren't any other methods that I'm aware of.
can you recommend a speakeasy bar located in or close to downtown houston?
I hope you have fun and thanks for checking in with me for your question!
Hi Veronica, I will be in the Houston area from December 25-29. What are the best things to do in a short amount of time? NASA will definitely be on the agenda. I am also thinking of attractions that can best be reached by public transportation. Please advise. Thank you, Vanessa
NASA is certainly a great attraction though you will need a car to get there since its about 25 minutes south of downtown.

Good Morning My name is Brenda Hernandez and I work for Princess House, Inc. In the month of July of 2014 we are scheduled to hold a convention in the city of New Orleans. It interest us to locate bus transportation from the Houston area to New Orleans and back. Convention dates are July 17th through the 20th.Can you provide me with a list of bus companies that are up for the task? Any information you can provide us with is greatly appreciated.
If you click on this link and scroll down you will see a list of bus transportation companies here in Houston. Which ones would be able to accommodate your request, I'm not sure. But it's a good place for you to start. I would specifically point out MegaBus which does daily trips between Houston and New Orleans, though I don't know if they do charters.
I hope this helps!
Verónica, I want to spend today (Nov 30) visiting Woodlands area. Could you help me with suggestions? Consider a nice lunch, dinner with jazz music, shopping, nice views. Regards, Jose
The Woodlands has its own great Visitors Bureau. Check out this page that highlights some of the best places to eat there. Perry's is great as well as Jaspers's for steaks. Also Escalante's and Mi Cocina for good Mexican. For some of the best shopping, head to the Market Street. Also here is the area's calendar of events.
Hope this helps!

What would you recommend for kids between the age of 6-16 in Houston? We are looking at visiting from December 26 to January 4.
Great question. I definitely think a visit to the Houston Museum of Natural Science is in order. The Houston Zoo is pretty spectacular, and you could even check it out at night while you're here for the seasonal Zoo Lights. Head to the Kemah Boardwalk south of the city for rides, restaurants and more. Discovery Green has a great ice skating rink and more family fun. Also, check out our Holiday Events roundup and our main calendar for the period you guys are here.
Hope this helps!
