Family Christmas
Submitted by Leslie from Texas on 10-29-2014
Question:

I'm looking for a Houston area hotel or resort in which to spend Christmas with extended family. Children's activities would be a plus along with a Christmas brunch or dinner. Thank you, Leslie

Answer:

Hi Leslie,

Good timing! We're actually working on this piece now for our website, and it will be up on the homepage in the first week of November - be sure to check back for that.  Until then, check out the 2013 round up of holiday events to get an idea of what'll be going on in December.

Regarding Christmas brunch or dinner, more than likely hotels are still working on their 2014 schedule.  But, traditionally, the Four Seasons, Hotel Granduca, The Houstonian, The St. Regis and The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center have hosted a Christmas dinner or brunch in the past. 

Best,

Veronica

Transportation from hobby lobby
Submitted by Terri from Canada on 10-29-2014
Question:

Can i take a rail or what would be my cheapest means to get 4 people from hobby lobby to hilton hotel downtown houston. Thank you terri

Answer:

Hi Terri,

I believe you are talking about our airport, Hobby Airport (and not Hobby Lobby the craft store). If that's correct, I suggest taking Super Shuttle, which run from the airport to downtown hotels. That said, I would also recommend calling the hotel where you will be staying to see if they offer any complimentary shuttle services.

I hope that help,
Veronica

holiday
Submitted by adrian from england on 10-28-2014
Question:

hi veronica we will be in houston early april 2015 & are looking on things to do country music etc & also would like to see a rodeo show we have no transport could you suggest best places please

Answer:

Hello!

We look forward to having you in Houston! That said, there are plenty of great things to check out in the country music scene in town, but unfortunately the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo will be taking place March 3-22. This is the only major rodeo event that happens in town.

That said, there are several great places to check out including Goode's Armadillo Palace, Firehouse Saloon and Dosey Doe.  For more live music suggestions, check out this list.

If coutry is the theme, here are some great Texas-centric shops to check out as well.

You also mentioned you have no transportation, which can get slightly tricky in a city so Texas-sized! I recommend sticking close to downtown as the Metro Rail will take you to some of the city's best attractions including the Museum District. Taxis are also plentiful, but it may be worth renting a car if your trip is going to last more than a few days.

I hope that helps and have a great visit,
Veronica

Weekend with daughter
Submitted by Aubrey from temple on 10-26-2014
Question:

so my daughter and i are thinking of going to Houston and we don't know what to do. what hotels do you recommend that are cheap but aren't nasty; you know what i mean? anyways, we also have nowhere to go that we can think of. we've already been to NASA and i don't want to go shopping because i'm already paying to go to Houston. please help?

Answer:

Hi Aubrey,

There are a ton of free things to do you Houston, check out the list here.

If you do have a little money to spare, I'd suggest looking into a Houston CityPASS. It can get you into all the top attractions at 46% savings.  And, if you stay downtown (I suggest the Embassy Suites or Residence Inn) you can ride the rail to the Museum District and the Houston Zoo to save the gas!

Check out our other itineraries and plan a trip around what you're interests are.

Hope this helps,

Veronica

Answer:

Hi Prakash,

I suggest you schedule a ride with Uber or Lyft.  You can schedule the pick-up/drop-offs in advance, so no need to worry about flagging down a ride.  You'll need to register in advance and download their app.

Hope this helps,

Veronica

visiting diff places
Submitted by usha from Medical center, houston on 10-23-2014
Question:

Hello Veronica, I am visiting United States and am in Houston. I would like to see most of Houston in easy way as I am 63 years old lady. Can you help me plan my shcedule that covers the most of interesting places of Houston at minimal expense or no expense at all.... thanks Mrs. Usha.

Answer:

Hi Mrs. Usha,

Thanks so much for your questions and Ill be happy to help. I would suggest you stay in hotel near the MetroRail (either downtown or in the museum district) and spend time checking out the Museum District. There you will find over 20 different museums, most of which are free!

You can also check out these itineraries and pick something that fits your personality! Make sure to check the coupons page for great deals to help keep your expenses minimal. There is also plenty of cheap BUT DELICIOUS places to eat around town. 

For some outdoor free fun, make sure to grab a B-Cycle or take a walk along Buffalo Bayou.If you like biking, here is a list of great places to bike around the city. 

I hope that helps and please let me know if you have any other questions!

Best,
Veronica

What to do!
Submitted by Brittany from 77056 on 10-16-2014
Question:

Veronica, I have a 4 year old and I am trying to plan a sunday funday. My husband and I are out doorsy, however the day before we are doing Hermann Park and the Houston Zoo, so I need something else... it doesnt necessarily have to be out doors either. Free preferred, but if it something really fun we will def pay! Our daughter isnt in to the childrens (or other) museums either. We are looking for this sunday, October 19,2014! Thanks!!

Answer:

Hi Brittany,

I think I can come up with some ideas for you! How about picking pumpkins at a pumpkin patch? The Texas Renaissance Festival is a little bit of a drive, but totally worth it! The Woodlands hosts its annual International Festival this weekend. There are guided nature hikes and programs each weekend at Brazos Bend State Park.

Tucked on the west side of Memorial park is the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center, a 155-acre nature sanctuary that educates visitors on how to protect native plants and animals in the city.  Walk the center's five miles of trails and visit the sanctuary's interactive exhibits free of charge.

If that's not enough, check out our Family Itinerary for more suggestions.

Hopefully one of these ideas strikes you!

Veronica
