Kids' activities
Submitted by Bruce Parker from Houston on 12-13-2014
Question:

Are there any programs/ classes in athletics, art, etc. for a visiting 7 year old between Christmas a New Year's Day?

Answer:

Hi Bruce,

I recommend you check into The Mad Potter (a paint your own pottery type place) or even the Children's Museum of Houston.

If you're on the west side, check out Biron Youth Sports - they have a winter camp that might be more of what you're looking for. 

Hope this helps,

Girls weekend in Houston
Submitted by Laquinta from Port Arthur Tx on 12-10-2014
Question:

I need help finding things to do at a affordable price. We will be in Houton Friday night til Sunday morning on 12/19 - 12/21. My Bday weekend. I have Sat night covered but need to do something Friday night and Saturday from 10A.M. - 5P.M. Please Help

Answer:

Hi Laquinta,

I think part of this is knowing what types of things you enjoy! But without knowing this, I would suggest you take a look at some of the things we offer in our Girlfriend Getaway itinerary. For instance, catch an exhibit at one of our great museums in the Museum District.

Or if you guys like to have fun and check out a different activity, check out TopGolf or maybe go bowling at Lucky Strike Lanes.

Those are a few ideas. But also check out our itinerary section which has great ideas depending on the type of experience you're looking for!

New Years Eve
Submitted by Lisa Hill from CT on 12-07-2014
Question:

My husband, 20 year old son and I will be in Houston on New Years Eve. Does Houston have a city wide First Night event like some cities here in New England-where there are numerous events set up and you can walk from event to event throughout the evening and night of Dec 31 and into the early morning hours of Jan 1? You buy a ticket that gets you into as many of the event in First Night as you like.

Answer:

Hi Lisa,

Unfortunately we do not have anything like what you're describing here in Houston. It's such a great idea though, maybe it's something we can look at for the future! There are a handful of events happening around Houston this New Years Eve, including a major celebration at the Hyatt Regency Houston Downtown, New Years Eve Ball at Silver Street Studios and others.

Christmas Gifts for a Local
Submitted by Jenelle from Calgary on 12-06-2014
Question:

Hi there! I really like this CityPASS, but I noticed that all of the tickets need to be used within 9 days. Is there anything similar to this that doesn't expire so quickly? My brother just recently moved down there, but he is working, so the limitation of days doesn't work for him. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Answer:

Hi!

CityPASS is a great way to explore the city, and luckily most of the attractions are near each other with the exception of Space Center just 30 minutes south of downtown. That said, you are correct that the tickets must be used within 9 days from the first day of use. If this doesn't work, you can always take a look at our coupons & discounts section for other gift ideas.

I hope that helps,
Veronica

Question for upcoming trip
Submitted by Sylvain & Estelle Pesant from Montreal, Canada on 12-06-2014
Question:

Arriving in Houston on the December 10th and would like to khow: 1. how can we get (with our luggage)from Georges Bush Airport to the Best Western Plus Downton Inn and Suites? Other than cabs, are there shuttles, express busses, etc. we can take? 2. Will the Beer Can House be open at this thime of the year? 3. Does the transit system have a 3 day pass or something of the king? 4. What time do stores close? Thank you!

Answer:
Hello,

I recommend taking a look at Super Shuttle. This shared-ride service transports travelers to and from their private address, office or hotel. It takes longer than a taxi due to more frequent stops but may be more affordable, especially if travelling alone. Private limousines are also available. For fare quotes and reservations go to www.supershuttle.com.

For your next question, the Beer Can House is open Wednesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The house is closed on most major holidays.

You can check here to get a Metro card, which you can continue to add value to.

As for store house, it varies depending on the store. In general, most retail stores close at 9 p.m., but I recommend checking online if you have a particular store in mind.

I hope that helps!

Persian Grocery Store (middle eastern not indian)
Submitted by Shannon from Waco,TX on 12-06-2014
Question:

We are coming to Houston early this morning to shop on Harwin St and I would like to kno wif there is a persian grocery store (middle eastern not indian) we could shop at also need a hotel in a good neighborhood close to Harwin as possible but willing to drive to be in nice safe area. Thanks Shannon

Answer:

Hi Shannon,

Sorry, I think I just missed you!

Here is a link to our Harwin round up. I don't know if any of these stores specialize in middle eastern foods. However, definitely check out Phoenicia Specialty Foods next time you're in town. There's a location in Downtown and on the west side

Also, I'd recommend staying in Downtown next time you're here. You'll be about 15 minutes away from Harwin.

Hope this helps,

Veronica

hotel request
Submitted by doger from CUREPIPE on 12-05-2014
Question:

good morning? we arrive on monday 26jan from paris and look forward an hotel between airport and nasa center for 2 nights, please advise a comment, thanks

Answer:

Hi Doger,

If you're looking to stay closer towards NASA, check out these hotels. If you'd like to stay more central, I suggest looking at Downtown. The Hotel Icon, Sam Houston Hotel and Magnolia Hotel are all close to nightlife, restaurants and the light rail. You can also look into getting a Houston CityPASS (Which includes entrance to Space Center Houston).

Hope this helps,

Veronica

 

transportation
Submitted by Marcela from houston on 12-04-2014
Question:

Hi, I am in Houston for 3 days and I need to go from downtown Houston to Bayport terminal cruise, any suggestion ? Supershuttle is to expensive.Thanks.

Answer:

Hi Marcela,

A Taxi from Downtown to the Bayport Terminal will run about $80 one way.  I'd look into hiring an Uber driver.  You'll need to download the app, but that could be a cheaper options.

Hope this helps,

Veronica
