What to do on Sunday night?
Submitted by Carlos Gonzalez from Houston on 07-21-2014
Question:

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

Answer:

Hi Carlos,

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,

Veronica

galveston transit info
Submitted by james van elden from wheaton on 07-20-2014
Question:

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?

Answer:

Hi James,

Regarding transit options, I'd look into booking Cool Tours or The Wave to help you all get around. You can call ahead and schedule everything with them.

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!

I hope that helps and you all have fun!

Golf
Submitted by Ed from Mexico on 07-15-2014
Question:

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

Answer:

Hi 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.

Best,

Veronica

Taxi costs
Submitted by Barry Levene from Liverpool, United Kingdom on 07-15-2014
Question:

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

Answer:

Hi Barry,

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,

Veronica

Texas visit
Submitted by Elizabeth from Toronto on 07-12-2014
Question:

Hi i am thinking of visiting Texas in october 16-18. I was wondering if there was an escourted tour that took one to all the cool sites that i found on your website? including the NASA space centre, USS ship and all the historical aspects as well? Thanks for getting back to me.

Answer:

Hi Elizabeth,

Thanks for reaching out to me! There is a company called Houston City Tours that can take you around to some of the spots in Downtown and the Museum District on a double-decker bus. They can also take you down to Space Center Houston on a shuttle. They do not however incorporate other attractions like Battleship Texas. You can work with one of our tour companies to create something custom, but if it's just  yourself or a small group, that may not be cost-effective. The best way to see it all is to rent a car, but if that's not possible, I know that Houston City Tours and others like The Wave can help you!
