parking at city hall
Submitted by Violet Chen from Richmond on 07-25-2014

Where do I park to go to Visitors Center in Houston City Hall?


Hi Violet,

There is free parking just outside of City Hall on Walker Street for up to one hour! If you anticipate being longer than that, you can park in the Theater District parking lot, entrance on Rusk at Smith.


Fun in the Sun
Submitted by Melissa from Houston -Southeast on 07-25-2014

I am 20 and I want to enjoy the summer before my third year of college starts back up in the fall. I want to get out and have fun. Help....


Hi Melissa,

What all do you enjoy doing?

We have a great itinerary section that include a range of activities in Houston - definitely start there.  I'd also check out the Events Calendar to see what's happening before you head back to school.

If you're looking specifically for outdoor activities, I love strolling through Bayou Bend Gardens! The house tour is pretty great as well.  The Arboretum is a beautiful spot nestled in the middle of the city that you have to check out!  Have you ever tried kayaking down Buffalo Bayou? If not, it's worth a try! Here are some places you can get in.

Hope this helps - let me know if you have more questions.



city pass
Submitted by Dave from New Jesrey on 07-25-2014

A colleague is moving to Houston next month and we wanted to buy her and her family Houston City Passes as a going away gift. The 9-day limit on using the pass however, is game stopper as this would not be for vacation, but for getting to know her new home. Are there cultural/attraction passes that have a longer life?


Hi Dave,

I totally understand your hesitancy given the 9-day restriction, however they aren't all so far apart that she couldn't keep it relaxed and spread across the week.

That said, check out the Houston Coupons & Discounts page for offers on great attractions like Splashtown, Houston Museum of Natural Science, Houston City Tours, Space Center and more. At most of the attractions, including Space Center, you can buy packages without buying CityPasses. Check out these unique offerings for some fun "behind the scenes" tours.

I hope that helps! Make sure she is also aware of our Visitors Guide to help get them familiar with Houston!



Submitted by Todd Robinson from Michigan on 07-24-2014

looking at having an event in Houston in Sept and I need to find Chinese cultural entertainment (e.g. dragon dancers) -- can you recommend whre I can go to find such talent?


I think I can recommend someone for you Todd!

The folks at J&D Entertainment offer a wide variety of entertainment options. I'm pretty sure they can work with you on this! You might also try Dance of Asian America, a local group that preserves the traditions of Asian dance.


Short stop at Houston
Submitted by CAROLINA from COLOMBIA on 07-23-2014

Hi Veronica. My boy friend and I will stop at Houston on our way to Alaska. We will arrive at G.Bush International Airport at 05:21 and leaving from that same airport at 15:18. Is it worth the effort to travel to Galveston Island? If not, what would be the absolute MUST SEE places we should visit in such short time. Thanks for any help we can get, Carolina and Javier.


Hi Carolina,

Galveston is about 1.5 hours away from the airport.  It's a lot of driving, plus the time it takes to rent a car, but it's definitely up to you! 

If you are interested in sticking to Houston, I'd suggest the Museum District (HMNS and MFAH are great choices).  The Downtown Aquarium is always a fun spot, the Houston Zoo or Space Center top the list. 

Hope this helps,

What to do on Sunday night?
Submitted by Carlos Gonzalez from Houston on 07-21-2014

Hi Veronica, My girlfriend is only available on Sundays and Mondays. What do you recommend to do on a Sunday night? Is there some place to go dancing on SUnday night? Thank you very much


Hi Carlos,

Of course! I suggest you look into Sambuca for good food and good jazz.  Wild West actually has dance instructors there Sunday afternoons if you're looking for a lesson.  Or if you're looking for more of a club environment, check out Grooves.

Hope this helps,


galveston transit info
Submitted by james van elden from wheaton on 07-20-2014

can you provide reliable tourist transit information as far as what transit options are available to get to (and from) Galvestopn from downtown Houston or the George Bush International airport? I ask as me and family have recently booked a Carnival 5 day cruise October 5th and am just wondering what options are available as far as transit options from Houston. While we could rely on the Carnival cruise for cruise transfers from the airport, we would like to spend a day or two in the downtown Houston area before embarking on our cruise. Anyways any suggestions you can provide would be most appreciative. PS is it possible to request via US Postal service a Visitors catalog and such?


Hi James,

Regarding transit options, I'd look into booking Cool Tours or The Wave to help you all get around. You can call ahead and schedule everything with them.

While you're in Houston, I'd recommend staying in Downtown so you can use the light rail to help get around.   Hotel Icon, Magnolia and Sam Houston Hotel are all near the light rail too.  Definitely check out Market Square park for dining and nightlife options while you're in town.  The Downtown Aquarium is a must-see in downtown and the Museum District and Houston Zoo are just a short ride down the light rail too.   

Hope this helps!

Hi Davell,

I think I can help you! For African American night clubs, I suggest Grooves Lounge, Red Cat Jazz Cafe,

and Social Junkie.

Submitted by margaret from houston on 07-17-2014

Is there a dog park near the Galleria in Houston Texas


Hi Margaret!

The closest dog park to the Galleria area is the Danny Jackson Park, just south of 59. Here's a roundup of the major parks around the city. Hope it helps!
