Where can I buy discounted electronics in Houston
Depending on what you're looking for, a lot of stores in Houston have discounted electronics. Depending on where you're staying, there's a Best Buy not far from that near The Galleria or a Fry's near Bush airport. You can also explore Harwin Drive for some of the electronics stores in that area, too.
Hope this helps,
"will open to public early this summer" We will visit the Space Center on Tuesday July 7th. Any chance to visit inside the Shuttle and the Carrier ? Thanks a lot for you help.
I'm sorry I checked with Space Center and it looks like the opening is actually in the fall, most likely September. Sorry I had this wrong. I know you'll have a great time at Space Center though!
Good morning. My family and I will come to visit Texas soon, from France, and Houston in particular. I heard that the Space Shuttle at the Houston Space Center has been placed on the top a Boeing 747 carrier. This must be very impressive to see. I Wonder if the attraction will open soon (supposed to open in February according to what I read last year). Is it open to visit yet or not ? Many thanks in advance. Fred.
Good news and bad news. The good news is you can definitely see the shuttle and the 747 in front of the Space Center complex and take pictures of it. The bad news is you cannot go inside yet. We understand from Space Center that the exhibit will actually open to the public early this summer. But there are many other wonderful things to explore at Space Center Houston. One of my favorites is Rocket Park!
I'd like to purchase a wedding gift made by a local Houston artist...or at least an artist from Texas. Where are some of the galleries that would feature local artists? (I'm actually hoping to find a salad serving set....I know that's pretty specific...but functional and artistic would be ideal!) Thanks!
I don't know of any local artist that make salad serving sets, but check out Kuhl-Linscomb or Berings. Both are local Houston shopping, so maybe that can be that "Houston" twist you're looking to incorporate in the wedding gift.
Hope this helps,
If I am at 800 Bell how to I get back up on to I-45 south?
Take a left on Milam Street, and left on Pierce Street. You can access an entrance ramp to the freeway on Pierce Street.
Hello, Veronica! I want to come to Houston for a week, primarily to see the Museum District. But when I search for hotels, I am redirected to hotels in the Texas Medical Center, which can be quite pricy. I will be renting a car: where is a decent area to stay in Houston within 10-20 minutes driving distance of the Museum District? Thanks!
There are plenty of affordable hotels in Houston. I've taken the liberty of doing a few searches for you on our Hotel page. You can search by area of town and for your case these areas should be close enough to easily get to the Museum District: The Galleria/Uptown area, River Oaks, and West University/Rice Village.
I hope that helps, and have fun visiting us in Houston!
Hi Veronica, I am coming to Houston the weekend of March 12th to see a buddy of mine. I don't know the area very well, do you have any recommendations for guys weekend activities?
Hello Veronica--My nephew and I will be visiting Houston from March 5-24, 2015. Would you be able to supply information on possible free seminars, networking sessions, meetings, continuing education classes, etc. for us? We plan to attend the rodeo but want to also do some education focused activities. Thank you in advance or your assistance! --Ellen
Looking at our Events Calendar, here are some Lectures and Seminars happening in March.
