transportation
Submitted by Kathleen M. OShea from NY on 04-26-2015
Question:

Is there a shuttle or way to get from IAH yo Hou? 4 of us are coming in at different airports so we need to know how to get together. thanks

Answer:

Hi Kathleen,

There isn't a dedicated shuttle between the two airports, but the folks at Super Shuttle can probably help you out. It may be easier however for you all to arrange to meet somewhere Downtown between the two airports. That would certainly save some money.

Best,

Veronica

Need Info
Submitted by Ricardo Escalante from Braeswood Place on 04-25-2015
Question:

Where does the Houston metro rail start and end ?

Answer:

Hi Ricardo,

Here is a map of the existing MetroRail Red Line. As you can see, the two ends are Fannin South just below NRG Park on the south side, and the Northline Transit Center just above 610 on the north side.

The new east-west lines are set to debut next month. You can see those on the linked map as well.

Houston architectural tours
Submitted by Aimee Gillespie from Chicago on 04-23-2015
Question:

If a group wanted to take an architectural tour in Houston, what is the most popular area to see?

Answer:

Hi Aimee,

The Architecture Center Houston offers great local architecture tours each weekend. Click here for their upcoming calendar of tours.

This roundup of architecturally significant places is also a good starting point. I would say Downtown, the area of Montrose around the Menil Campus and the Heights are some of the most architecturally significant spots around town.

There are more tour options here as well.

I hope this helps!

Happy Hour is best where on Wednesday?
Submitted by Kristi from Midtown/Downtown/Galleria on 04-20-2015
Question:

Hello, I am a local girl. I have an out of town friend coming to visit. We want to go to a fun, active happy hour on Wednesday, April 22nd, in the Midtown/Downtown/Galleria area. Do you have any suggestions where there is a good crowd? Ages 21-45 (we are in the middle of this range). We love music, so that would be a plus. Thank you!

Answer:

Hi Kristi,

I have a few places you might want to consider. Glorias in Midtown, Sambuca for live jazz, a great newer bar called Nightengale Room. Another popular spot that has a great historic vibe is Public Services Wine and Whisky.

Question:

Where can I find Texas-shaped waffles in Houston? How about other 'only in Texas' related items (for first time visitors from abroad)?

Answer:

Hi Theresa,

I'm sorry I don't know about Texas-shaped waffles. But if you're looking for other Texas themed products, head to the Houston Visitors Center. They've got tons of Texas products!

Submitted by suze q from houston on 04-10-2015
Question:

We need your help. Prom is 5/15, and we've (6 of us) decided we want to do something else, fun to us. Destination could be downtown Houston, unless you have better idea. Considering House of Blues, but what other eating AND entertainment suggestions do you have? Lucky Strive is 21+. Doesn't have to be chain restaurant, just special. City Centre, The Woodlands? We'll dress up, and maybe change for after dinner.Please help!

Answer:
Hi Suze,

How about going to see a show? That could be fun. The Music Man is playing at Theatre Under the Stars. Or go see a comedy show at ComedySportz. For something totally different, go see a baseball game at Minute Maid Park. A few great restaurants downtown include Sambuca with live music nightly, or Batanga for great Spanish tapas. You guys could also head to the Downtown Aquarium where you could have dinner and ride the rides, dressy or not! Another bowling option is 300 Houston.

I hope these suggestions help a bit. Also explore our things to do section for more ideas!

Indoor Flea Market
Submitted by Marilyn Stewart from Brandon, MS on 04-09-2015
Question:

I'll be in Houston this weekend. Looking for an indoor flea market. Due to the 100% chance of rain on Sunday, we will may not go to Trader's Village.

Answer:

Hi Marilyn,

Your best option for a completely indoor flea market is probably Houston Flea Market on Southwest Freeway. Click here for more details. Trader's Village is certainly one of the best, but I understand your concern about the weather. Yet another outdoor option is Sunny Flea Market.

Submitted by Penelope from Virginia on 04-07-2015
Question:

Where should we stay and things to do? Would love to be in the mix of many choices be able to walk around see cool things and eat some great BBQ .

Answer:

Hi Penelope,

If you stay in Downtown, you have access to walkable dining and nightlife options, like Market Square Park and Green Street. You also have access to the light rail to get you to Midtown, the Museum District, and Houston Zoo. I recommend you look into The Sam Houston Hotel, Hotel Icon or Magnolia Hotel.

Check out our Events Calendar and Itineraries to find acivities based on your interests. I also recommend you look into a Houston CityPASS, which gets you into the top attractions at 50% savings.

For BBQ, check out Pappas BBQ or Goode Co. BBQ - they have locations all around town.

Hope this helps,

Veronica

Houston activities
Submitted by albert from Dallas on 04-05-2015
Question:

Going to Houston with my grandson(age 14) what activities from April7th to the 11th would you advice

Answer:

Hi Albert,

Check out our Events Calendar and itineraries section to organize some activities around his interests.

I always recommend the Houston Zoo and Museum of Natural Science. If he likes sports, check out Top Golf or Lucky Strike Bowling.  The Astros season just started up again if he's a baseball fan - you can buy tickets here for a game. 

Best,

Veronica
