Have a question about what to do, where to eat or anything else pertaining to your visit to Houston? Just Ask Veronica. She has the answers to your queries about H-Town.
We arrive at George Bush airport on Friday afternoon and we leave on a cruise from bayport on Saturday, we want to stay in a reasonably priced hotel we want to shop at Gallera. Is there a bus we could take from the airport to a hotel to shop back to hotel then to the cruise ship the next day?
If you want to shop at the Galleria, I definitely recommend you look into West Galleria & Westin Oaks hotel (it's actually attached to the Galleria). Here are other hotels located in the Galleria area - I'd ask the hotel if they have a shuttle that can take you over to the Galleria and pick you up when you're done to make it easy.
Regarding transportation, you'll need to either rent a car, get a taxi or Uber to shuttle you between the airport, hotel and cruise terminal. There is no public transportation (other than city bus) between your destinations.
Hope this helps,

Hi Myself and my friend are travelling to Houston for 7 nights. We are two ladies who want to experience the night life and the tourist attractions. What we are looking for is a bit of the 5 day itinary and the girls weekend. Neither of us will be driving so i wanted to know where the best place is to stay where we can be in the middle of everything. Can you please help? What is the best thing to do to get around? we dont know much so the more you cas suggest the better! Thanks!
I think you've found the girlfriend getaway itinerary and the 5 day. Those are definitely our top recommendations for your type of trip. Must sees from these include shopping at Kuhl-Linscomb, The Galleria and Highland Village. Dining at Backstreet Cafe, Underbelly, Kata Robata, Good Co. BBQ and the Original Ninfa's. As attractions go, definites include the Menil Collection, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Museum of Natural Science, the San Jacinto Monument and Battleship Texas. If you guys are at all interested in history, it's worth noting that the battleship is the only American one that served in both world wars to still be afloat and played a key role in the D-Day invasion.
For a taste of Texas, check out our Urban Cowboy itinerary.
That said, Houston is a big city and we don't have the most comprehensive public transit. To be close to as much you would want to see as possible, I suggest staying Downtown. There you will be close to good restaurants and nightlife but also be able to take the light rail to the Museum District and other options. You can review and book Dowtnown hotels, including the Four Seasons, JW Marriott, Hilton Americas and more here.
i will be visiting houston for 2 nights in october there ar 4 of us can you sugest a couple of places to see not zoos or space centures cheers petro
Sure, check out our Itinerary section. There are tons of great ideas on things to do around Houston that fit your lifestyle. We also have a great Theater District, Museum District and amazing shopping to fill your days.

We want to take our grandkids downtown for couple nights July 3 and 4 to view fireworks celebration? What hotel is BEST for viewing the fireworks?
The closest celebration to downtown is at the newly renovated Eleanor Tinsley Park. I would recommend taking some lawn chairs over to the park for the best view. There are plenty of hotels downtown to choose from and are all within close proximity. Are you wanting to view the fireworks from the hotel? Let me know and Ill try to refine the search a little more closely.

Yes we would want to view from the hotel room or balcony. We have a 5 yr, 4, 3 and 2 month old and not comfortable being outside.
Thanks for suggestions
I was told that there are free senior metro passes for people over 70 to ride busses and rail. Is this true ? Where can I get one? If not free how much ??? Thanks, Al
It's not free to seniors, but 50% off for seniors. Check out the information and where to buy the passes here.
Hey Veronica, I'm a 22 year old single gal who just graduated college and moved to Houston about a month ago. I only know one person, a cousin, living in Houston. Where would you suggest would be the best places for me to meet people and make friends? Thanks, Emily
Welcome to Houston!
There are all sorts of clubs around town for different activities and interests. Maybe try a book club, hiking adult sport leagues or even French Club to meet new people. Bottom line, there is something for everyone here.

Hi. We are staying downtown at the Mongolia Hotel but everyone suggests midtown as the place to go for restaurants and nightlife. What is the cab time to get from downtown to midtown? Should we look for an alternate hotel in midtown? Thanks,
Hope this helps,
My daughter is celebrating her 16th birthday by spending the night with her friends at a Galleria hotel. I will be with them of course, but what else can we do at the end of March that would be fun, other than shopping and ice skating?
Any ideas for team building activities for a group of 9 on a weekday afternoon for 1 1/2 - 2 hours? Thank you. Joan
