Hi Veronica, My company is running a marketing program in Houston from May to the end of July, and we're looking for the best, most exciting events happening in the city. We've already partnered with several great ones, including Free Press Summer Fest, Juneteenth, etc, but need more for the program. Ideally, we're looking for well-attended (10,000+ attendees) events, and especially ones that appeal to the Hispanic market, though all large events are valid possibilities. If you have any help for us non-Houstonians, that would be such a help! Thanks!
I don't think there are many large Hispanic events going on during that time. You can certainly reach out to Celia Morales, our Deputy Director of International Public Relations, periodically to see if anything new has been booked.
Hope this helps,
Hi there! I'm thinking of relocating, on a whim, and I've narrowed down my search to Houston. I've been looking into where to live, and I would love your input on neighborhoods. Price aside, if you could LIVE anywhere in Houston, where would you live? And, because I don't know you very well ;) If you were me, what would you recommend. Likes-Food, Arts, Outside Activities (Backyard is a +), dancing, other young 30 couple stuff. Dislikes-TRAFFIC, Constant Noise. Any help would be much appreciated. :-) P.S. I have checked out your neighborhood page,it's great, but a bit vague.
We're so glad you're relocating to Houston!
First off, I suggest you request a free relocation guide from the Greater Houston Partnership. You can do so here.
As you may know, Houston has a bustling arts and culture scene - the Theater District and Museum District are great places for you to live by. Also, Houston is definitely a town for foodies, here is a link to dining in Montrose, 15 Iconic Houston Meals and Award Winning Restaurants. As far as outside activities, you should check out our parks and outdoor section for fun things to do all over the city. If you're a runner, Memorial Park trail and Rice University trails are great.
Let me know if any of these neighborhoods spark your interest or you have any more specific questions that I can help you with.
What's a good hotel location when purchasing the city pass ?
Pretty much any hotel in Downtown Houston (consider the Hyatt Regency, Embassy Suites and Crowne Plaza just to name a few) is accessible to the majority of our CityPASS attractions via our light rail line. I suggest booking directly via the link above for the best price guarantee. The rail runs through Downtown directly to the Museum District where you can explore the Natural Science Museum, Fine Arts Museum, Zoo and more. The Downtown Aquarium is, of course, Downtown so that works as well. Neither Kemah Boardwalk nor Space Center Houston are easily accessible via public transportation, so I suggest renting a car if you plan to go to either of these.
If you want to stay within walking distance of the Museums, consider Hotel Zaza, which is adjacent to the Fine Arts and Natural Science museums. Book that property here.
I hope this helps.
I have been looking online, and my husband and 13 yr boy. Are looking to go to a mall besides Willowbrook(which is fine ). We were thinking Katy Mills, or the Galleria. What mall would you recommend for shopping, entertainment and just general fun. Or any amusement park? Thanks for advice ! Jessica
I like Katy Mills a lot. Plus there's a huge Bass Pro Shop there if you guys are into the outdoors at all. Of coruse there's also the Galleria. There is a Studio Movie Grill and Cinemark movie theater near Memorial City Mall, which is nice. Since you guys are coming from Tomball, I wasn't going to recommend the malls on the south side of town, but if you wanted to do a couple things--you could hit up Kemah Boardwalk for fun and do some shopping at Baybrook Mall.
Hope this helps!
Hi Veronica, I will be traveling across the country with a team of people in a bus to promote brand awareness for our company. We are looking for a good place to park our bus where it can be seen by people and where we can interact with passers by and give handouts. I would very much appreciate it if you would let me know where a good place to go would be on July 16 or 17. Warm regards, Jack
I would check with some of the urban parks like Discovery Green in Downtown Houston. I think whoever you work with you will need to obtain a permit or permission of some sort. You may also want to check with the Downtown District to see if they have any recommendations.
Hi there! I'm looking for ideas for a child's first birthday. Our home is far too small for a party and I'd really like something unique. We are thinking about 25-30 people at the very least. Thanksa
I would definitely look into the Children's Museum, the Houston Zoo and the Downtown Aquarium. We also have a great list of kid-friendly restaurants--any restaurant on this list would be a good option. Hope this helps!
I am going to be in Houston on or about July 20th and am scheduled to board a cargo ship for a 26 day journey to various ports in Mexico and Central America. At your cargo terminal, is there free parking for cargo ship passengers near the loading and unloading dock area? I understand there is paid parking for the cruise ship passengers but can find no info about your cargo terminals. Can you provide me any info or contact number regarding this issue. Since I will be at sea about 30 days, I cannot afford to use the cruise terminal parking. Thank you. JW Cook Danville, Illinois
Are you sailing from the Port of Houston or the Port of Galveston?
