We shall be staying at an airport hotel for two nights and would like to visit the NASA Johnson space centre. We do not have a car so could you tell me how I can travel to the space centre? Many thanks Kind regards Bernadette Russell maidstone England UK
I assume you're flying into Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and staying at a hotel there?
Unfortunately, there are not a lot of public transportation options to Space Center Houston. I recommend either taking a cab (~$120 each way), looking into Uber (you'll need to download the app and get set u) or if you're interested in hiring a private drive, check out our transportation members.
Hello Veronica! My annercersory is coming up and I want to do something romantic with my significant other. Anything in mind?
Hello Veronica, I'm looking to host a crawfish boil for 1000 people in downtown Houston. Would you know of a location? Outside, inside or rooftop maybe? Thanks! Donnie 409-658-8609
I suggest you check into our Venu Search options. You can tailor your search to area of town as well.
Here are some options in downtown that could accomodate 1,000 people.
Hope this helps,
Is it possible to take public transportation from downtown Houston to the space center and if so - how?
The only public transportation available is the Metro bus system.
Here is their trip planner information so you can plug in where you're departing from, date and time to get the correct bus route.
Hi Veronica. This is so great. I'm happy you offer this service. I'll be at 170 heights blvd 3:30pm Thursday. Before going there I'd like to visit always free museums or ones with free admission that day. Which museums are proximate? Meaning closest. I can't do much driving so this info will greatly help me. Is there a map of museums I can refer to. Thank you for your help Veronica. Thanks to you I'll have a great visit
None of the museums are in the Heights, but if you can catch a ride to Downtown or take the Metro, you'll be able to jump on the light rail for $1.25 per ride, and ride it down to the Museum District to access the museums.
Hope this helps!
Hi Veronica! We will have a layover (IAH) the first part of February and while I thought we would stay more on the north and east part of Houston...all the popular restaurants seem to be located near the "Green District". I had even thought of staying near Lake Houston in Humble. Can you recommend a fantastic restaurant in that area for our dinner meal? A Mexican restaurant would be nice or BBQ, steak or seafood would all make my husband happy as we end our vacation. Should we change our stay to the west side?
I think you're referring to the Greenspoint area? I'm not sure though. There is a fantastic Pappasito's Cantina at 15280 North Freeway. There's also Sweet Sadie's BBQ & Wings at 2200 Spears Road in the area. El Papaturro is also close by at 50 Aldine Bender. Chimichurri's is also a great South American Grill in the Kingwood area.
If this is not the area you were looking at, let me know and I can give you a different set of recommendations.
Hi Veronica we"re coming to houston on the 7th april its our first time to the states theres 3 of us ages from 40-64 could you recommend some things to do & see please mum like country music/rock & roll could you name other things please.
My husband and I are getting off our cruise on February 8th in the early morning and are not returning home until Feb 9th late afternoon .we are leaving from IAH airport . Where would you recommend staying ? If possible we would like to see the zoo and I would like to do a bit of shopping . Is there a place close to both? Also how should I get from the cruise ship terminal to hotel then hotel to airport IAH. Thank you
If you want to be close to the Houston Zoo and perhaps a few museums, I suggest staying in the Museum District or Medical Center area. Hotel Zaza and the Hilton Houston Plaza are a couple of great options. There are also a number of great hotels in the Galleria area for a good shopping experience. But unfortunately you will have to take some transportation to either the zoo or the Galleria, as they are about 10-15 minutes apart.
SuperShuttle will get travelers from the airport to the cruise terminal or from Downtown to the terminal. If you are going to a hotel nearby, I recommend calling the hotel to see if SuperShuttle will drop off there as well. Also Sam's Limousine will get you from whatever hotel to the terminal. I recommend calling to find out pricing for Sam's, but I believe it will be more cost effective than renting a car.
my friend and I are in Houston starting January 2. she will have surgery at md Anderson on the 5th. I'd like to do some interesting, fun things over the weekend jan 3-4 that would help us both think of things other than scary surgery. we are both fit but she can't sit for long periods.
I highly suggest checking out the Houston CityPASS, which will get you into all the top attractions at 47% savings. If you love to shop, you're in luck - the Houston Galleria has world-class shopping with over 375 stores to choose from. Check out more here.
Hope this helps and have fun!
Hi Veronica My wife's birthday is Jan 3rd, we are in Houston Tx, and im trying to find a nice upscale Restaurant that offers the full dining experience and entertainment. I have been in northeast houston for the last 7 years, and i work from home, so I dont get out much. Im open to going to anypace you suggest, and distance in not a problem. Thanks
What a fun occasion! I suggest you look into Brenner's Steakhouse on the Bayou, which has beautiful scenary. Go there before the sun sets so you can really explore the grounds. Also, look into Spindletop Restaurant, which is the revolving restaurant on top of the Hyatt Regency Houston hotel. You'll get 360 views of Houston! If you're interested in dinner with live music, check out Sambuca restaurant in Downtown.
Hope this helps!
