hotels within walking distance of the Space centre
Submitted by Mish from LHR on 03-22-2014

Hello, I am planning to visit the space centre over a weekend, and i wont be driving. Which hotels are within walking distance of the Space centre? Upto a 20 minute brisk walk would be fine for me. Thank you!


Hi Mish,

The closest hotel that I'm aware of is the Hilton NASA Clear Lake.  It's a very nice property on the waterfront. It's about a 25 minute walk, but there is a shuttle that can take you to Space Center and pick you up again. I hope this helps!

What are some good wine bars downtown. Large selection is a plus!!!


Hi Sharen,

A favorite close to Downtown is 13 Celsius. It's a great vibe. Another that's on the edge of Montrose and Midtown is Boheme. La Carafe is Houston's oldest bar, located in the historic district Downtown. Bonus: it's haunted! MKT Bar at Phoenicia is a great hangout close to Discovery Green. Mongoose vs. Cobra is another fun spot in Midtown, just a few blocks from Downtown. Finally the Tasting Room at River Oaks is an easy-going hangout not far away as well.


Fun places to meet older men.
Submitted by Diana from North-East on 03-17-2014

My aunt is 55 and she will be coming to town from May 10th thru June 15. She is the MOST fun,loving, positive, outgoing person I have ever met in my life! She is single and loves her life, but she would like to meet men so she can chat and have a good time with in the Houston area. The men can be a little younger or her same age. By the way did I mention she is 55, but she looks 40!!. I really appreciate your suggestions and advice. Thank in advance.


Hi Diana,

Hmm, has your aunt tried an online dating service before?  I don't know of any place in Houston where singles go to meet up. But, if you let me know what type of activities your aunt likes to do, I could suggest some fun places to go!



Visiting Space Center
Submitted by Jeffrey Crummie from Pittsburgh PA on 03-17-2014

We will be staying at the Hilton Americas and have time (about 4 hours) the morning of 3/30? Is this enough time to visit the space center? How would we get there? Which activities should we do? Thank you.


Hi Jeffrey,

Space Center is about 30 minutes drive, south from downtown. You need to rent a car to get down there (or take a cab).  You could make it a quick trip before heading out. 

Definitely look into the Level 9 Tram Tour while you are there!

Hi Jeff-

The cab fare would be approximately $65 from downtown to Space Center Houston.  So, around $130 round trip back to the Hilton Americas.

how much would a cab cost?

Things to do
Submitted by Leo from Houston on 03-13-2014

I have a few coworkers that will be coming in to town for a class on April 6-9th . Afterwards we would like to go out and enjoy some activities what do you recommend. Are there any sports venus going on or fun activities in the area. We will be located at I10 Katy Freeway and the Sam Houston Toll Way near Memorial City Mall.


Hi Leo,

If you guys can sneak away during the day, the Shell Houston Open is wrapping up April 6th and the Astros will be in town, playing in the afternoon April 6th and 7th.  Also, the Rockets will be playing Wednesday night, April 9th, over at Toyota Center. 

If you are looking for something a little closer to Memorial City, be sure to check out Top Golf or even Bowlmor Houston lanes.

Hope this helps,


moving to Houston
Submitted by sandra towster from kfar sava on 03-12-2014

My husband and I are thinking of moving to Houston to be near our grandkids. We are retired and would like to be active. What kinds of activities are there for retired people? Sandi


Hi Sandi,

Houston has so much to do! What are you favorite activities?  There are tons of hike and bike trails in the city and fun things to do outside.  There are golf courses throughout the city - you can pretty much golf in Houston all year round.

The shopping and nightlife is the best around too. There are arts and cultural activities throughout the Museum District and Theatre District if you like those type of activities.

If you are interested in moving to Houston, check out the relocation guide from the GHP and request a free Visitors Guide here.



short visit
Submitted by Mark from Ohio on 03-11-2014

I will be in town for a few days visiting my mother who is in her 80's but gets around well. What is there to do during the day that is not too strenous but interesting for 2 gay men and a mother?


Hi Mark,

If you love the arts, be sure to check out the museum district.  With 20 museums in walking distance, there is plenty to see and do.  The Magna Carta exhibit will be at the Museum of Natural Science through August, and definitely check out the Happy Hour Thursdays at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. 

If you're interested in performing arts, definitely look into the different shows playing at the theaters.  The Hobby Center always have great shows and Swan Lake is the featured ballet this summer.

If you all get any down time, look into www.MyGayHouston.com for LGBT acitvities in town.



Visiting Houston on Business
Submitted by Annette from Davis, Ca on 03-11-2014

Hello Veronica, I will be in Houston beginning of May for a business conference at the Reliant Center. Any recommendations for things to experience near that area between 2 May and 8 May? Thank you, Annette


Hi Annette,

Welcome to Houston! 

Reliant is on the light rail connecting the Reliant area to different parts of the city - meaning you can do and see a ton of the city without a car! 

I suggest checking out the museum district - there are 20 museums in walking distance!  When you're in town, the Magna Carta exhibit will be at the Museum of Natural Science and be sure to stop by Happy Hour Thursdays at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

The rail also connects you to downtown, home of the theater district.  Evita will be showing at the Hobby Center, so you should definitely check that out if you love performing arts. 

Here is our calendar of events for the dates you'll be in town.  Be sure to check back often as new events are added every day.
