Hi, i am looking for a spa close to the hospital or in downtown houston and am using the metro bus service between june 25th and june 27th.
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.

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!
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!

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
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.

Thanks so much for your prompt response.
We will definitely give it a try.
