Hi, I was wondering if you had any recommendations for shuttle service companies that can transport 25-30 people from downtown to the west side of town near I-10 and HW 6 to TopGolf. I do not need a party bus since we are going there from work and back. Thanks.


Hi Jorge,

Contact The Wave! They can help set something up for you.

what is the location of the one dollar store in houston? Is there a Macy's store in Houston? What stores are on sale in Houston?


Hi Oma,

There are dollar stores located throughout the Houston area, check out their website here to find the location closest to where you are staying. 

Yes, there are Macy's stores in Houston, check out their store locator here to find the location closest to you. 

Regarding sales, most stores have some sort of sales throughout the week or weekend.  If you're looking for discounts, check out the outlet malls in Houston: Houston Premium Outlets or Katy Mills Mall.  Also, down on Harwin, there are knock-off type of items for cheap.

Hope this helps,

vacation with 12
Submitted by gina from lake charles la on 06-16-2014

Hello Veronica, I am vacationing with 2 of my sisters and their families. 6 adults, 5 teens (13-18) and 1 llyr.old. We originally were planning on just going to Kemah. so we booked a hotel in La Porte. But now we are all undecided. I would like to take the kids to a water park, play laser tag, ride go-karts and go to an aquarium. I'm willing to drive up to an hour from our hotel. We also would like to eat at unique fun restaurants as well as budget friendly. Please help! Thanks!


Hi Gina,

Kemah is a great place to start and offers a lot for families. That said, I've put together a Family Itinerary which highlights things like the Houston Zoo, the Museum of Natural Science, the Aquarium, the Children's Museum and more!

As for family friendly restaurants, check out this roundup. The list included plenty of place to eat on a budget!

I hope that helps!

Submitted by Judy Trevino from Pearland on 06-12-2014

Hi. We're new to the Houston area. We moved from Portland, Texas to Pearland. I LOVE Houston and the surrounding area, but I miss my piano man at the piano bar at the OMNI hotel in Corpus Christi. He played all my favorite music - anything by Michel LeGrand, Frank Sinatra, Mancini.... Can you recommend a place in Houston that has a pianist who plays Michel Legrand music? Thanks so much. Judy


Hi Judy,

It's a great question but I'm not sure I'm going to be able to help you! You're looking for a more neighborhood-oriented piano joint, one where you can request a few favorites. Those come and go so quickly, depending on whether the piano player can make tips! The only place that comes to mind is Pete's Dueling Piano Bar, but that may be a little too raucous for what you want. I will look into this a little more and if I'm able to find additional spots, I'll shoot you another reply.
