Could you help me find a pharmacy around Houston area called Diplomat?
I've never heard of Diplomat pharmacy. I've found their website, and they have a phone number listed at the bottom. Try to give them a call to see if they can help you.
I will be in Houston 1/29-2/9 2015 but only have nights free. Suggestions?
What sort of activities do you enjoy and what area of town will you be in?

Veronica. What is the best time of year to visit Houston? I will be visiting my sister in law just outside Houston for a few days and I want me spend several days in Galveston. I am most concerned about the weather? I want to be able to see outdoor sites comfortably. Thank You. Linda
Here is some information about our weather. Definitely the early spring and late fall/winter time is the best to visit the city.
Hope this helps,
We're looking for a parking space close to Hobby airport on Nov. 27. Any ideas???
Hello Veronica: My husband and I are taking a cruise from Huston on December 14th but we are arriving the evening of the 13th. We can rent a car for and cruise around the city. We don't drink alcohol but love to dance and have fun, we also love sightseeing or a good restaurant. Could you please recommend us a hotel and a what to do that night? Thank you so much for your help.
We are in motorhome towing a car and will be traveling through Houston on I-10 to San Antonio. Are there any tolls on I-10 or can we travel straight through with no problems?
As long as you stay on I-10 (don't get off on the Beltway or take the Katy Tollroad) you'll be just fine.
Hi Veronica. My family would like to come to Houston for the Houston Livestock Show and Roedo in early March/15. We would like to see some cattle showing, attend the rodeo, and go to a concert one evening. Can't you tell me how to get tickets to any of these events? Also, we don't know the city, so could you recommend a hotel (s) that would suit our plans. Finally, do you recommend renting a car or is it just as easy to get around by taxi? Thank you for your comments, Carol
You'll be able to get ticket prices on the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo website when the concert line up is announced in January. Here is some general information on the ticket prices. You can also look into buying a ticket just for the livestock portion if you are not interested in rodeo/concert portion of it.
Regarding hotels, I'd recommend a hotel in downtown - that way you can easily jump on the light rail to get down to NRG Park area. Check out Hotel Icon, Magnolia Hotel, Sam Houston, Embassy Suites or Residence Inn as options. For Restaurant/Nightlife options in Downtown, check out Green Street and Market Square Park.
If you're interested in venturing over to The Galleria, I'd suggest renting a car, taking a taxi or scheduling an Uber ride. The light rail does not access that part of town.
Hope this helps!
is crime bad in houston, is it isolated or spread all over. what are the safest neighborhoods in houston. thanks. i look forward to visiting.
Over the past 10 years, crime rate in Houston is at it's lowest levels. But, like any city, be safe and aware of your surroundings.
Is there something in particular you are interested in doing while you're here? If you give me an idea of what you'd like to do when you're in town, I'll point you in the right direction.
When was the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau originally started?
Interesting question! The GHCVB was founded in 1963. In fact, we celebrated our 50th anniversary last year. Learn more about the GHCVB here.
