Hi there- I am arriving in Houston via Emerald Princess early on 11th Nov, have booked to see NASA on 12th and leave afternoon of 13th Nov from G B Intercontinental. Where would be a good location to stay within cooee of these places and what is the best way of getting from one location to another? Thanks, Lynne
The places that you are visiting are very spread out. Therefore, I recommend you stay in a central location to all of them in Downtown. I recommend Hotel Icon, Sam Houston Hotel or the Magnolia Hotel.
Regarding transportation between each location, I suggest calling The Wave, Taxi, Uber or Lyft to get you down to Space Center Houston. To get from the cruise terminal and hotel, then hotel to the airport, look into Super Shuttle or The Wave.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
I have an antique bed and chest I want to place on consignment in the Heights. What are the time of business for the store on 19th and when can I bring things into the store?
The shops on 19th that I'm aware of do not allow for consignment from the public. Those antique shops are dealer only. However, one place you might consider is the Guild Shop on Dunlavy in Montrose. The Guild Shop does take consignment pieces. Furniture consignment can be brought in by appointment only. Click here to see the process and how it works.
Hope this helps!

Hi Veronica, My husband and I will be celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary in a couple of weeks and we would like to get out of town and have a real break. We thought Houston would be a great place to check out. We are both somewhat slow paced and easy going. We love museums, but we only have a Saturday and a Sunday and we can't narrow down which ones would be high priority. We would also like to have a nice dinner--we both love Italian and Chinese. We wouldn't mind thinking outside the box either. We love the arts of all kinds, and we will do things that are a little adventurous once in a while, but we aren't really thrill seekers. Lastly, I should mention that we HATE typical "night life" club type atmospheres. Any suggestions you have to make our little weekend a fun and relaxing break from our busy schedules would be greatly appreciated. Much Thanks, Ilene
Congratulations on 17 years!
Definitely check out our itineraries - our romantic weekend and artshound sound like great itineraries for you both. For Museums, the artshound itinerary breaks down what you'll see at each museum so that can hopefully narrow down your selection.

Trying to find Howard Hughs's grave to show some friends that will be visiting from England.
You're looking for Glenwood Cemetery! Check out our listing for the cemetery close to Downtown.
I'm looking for a fun restaurant or bar in the midtown area with live music and close to the hotel zsa zsa for a bachelorette party. this isn't a wild crazy group!! also is there transportation the the midtown area such as a shuttle that has on and off privileges?
I think I can help you out. On the transportation front, the Wave makes the most sense for you!
I think for music and a good time close to Hotel ZaZa, the Mid Main area is what you want. You can take the MetroRail train from the Museum District to Mid-Main, where you'll find the Continental Club and other fun spots like the Alley Kat, Double Trouble and Natachee's. It's a fun but relaxed area.
Let me know if you need more info or ideas!

Hi Veronica, My husband and I just recently moved to the Energy Corridor from Michigan. We are looking for entertainment and things to do in the Energy Corridor, but everything is pointing us to other neighbors. Where would you suggest we go for dining and entertainment in our own backyard?
I highly recommend you check out CityCentre. It's located off Beltway 8 and I-10. There are great restaurant and nightlife options - they even have a movie theater. Right next to CityCentre is the Town and Country area, which also has restaurants and shopping.
Hope this helps!
I am looking for hotels in the Midtown / Montrose area. Could you recommend some?
Here is a link to our hotels section if you're interested in other areas of town.
