Is there a dog park near the Galleria in Houston Texas
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!

That was fast! Thanks!
Hi I was wanting to know what you would suggest doing for a day with 2 other co-workers. We are looking to celebrate for the whole day and it has to involve drinking. ha ha Thanks.
Thanks for your question and I think I've found plenty of ideas to keep you and your co-workers entertained...and hydrated! Check out these itineraries for ideas based on your interests. In particular, check out our Beer Nut itinerary to quench your thirst. If wine is more your speed, we have an itinerary for that, too. Since it sounds like this is a girls day, check out our Girlfriend Getaway itinerary.

Myself and a buddy will be in Houston on 4th August and are looking to play a round of golf. Are there any courses close to the Holiday Inn on JFK BLVD, and do any of them hire Golf clubs? Thank you, Ed
Cypresswood Golf Club or Tour 18 Golf are both about15 minutes away from your hotel, and a beautiful courses. Yes, rental clubs are available at both courses - I'd call ahead and ask for the rental clubs when you make your tee time.
For other courses around town, check out our golf round up.
My wife and I are staying at the Royal Sonesta by the Galleria for 3 days in August. I do not particularly want to hire a car and have already booked a full day tour to Space center. However we will probably want to visit the Museum district and also eat in the Fondren / South Braeswood area. Can you give me some info on the likely taxi costs to get to and from these areas from our hotel? Thanks
Welcome to Houston! Of course:
Hotel to Space Center: ~33 miles and $75 each way
Hotel to Museum District: ~ 7 miles and $20 each way
Hotel to Fondren/ South Braeswood: ~7 miles and $20 each way
Luckily, the Museum District has 20 museums within walking distance, so that's an option to save on taxi costs.
Hope this helps,

Many thanks for the prompt reply. Very helpful.
Hi i am thinking of visiting Texas in october 16-18. I was wondering if there was an escourted tour that took one to all the cool sites that i found on your website? including the NASA space centre, USS ship and all the historical aspects as well? Thanks for getting back to me.
Thanks for reaching out to me! There is a company called Houston City Tours that can take you around to some of the spots in Downtown and the Museum District on a double-decker bus. They can also take you down to Space Center Houston on a shuttle. They do not however incorporate other attractions like Battleship Texas. You can work with one of our tour companies to create something custom, but if it's just yourself or a small group, that may not be cost-effective. The best way to see it all is to rent a car, but if that's not possible, I know that Houston City Tours and others like The Wave can help you!

Hello Veronica, My family reunion is next Thurs 7/17-7/19 I am needing suggestions to take a group of 40. We will be staying in the Galleria area. Suggestions do not have to be in that area.
I hope this helps!
Hello Veronica, we are a group of 40, we will be staying at a hotel near Hobby Airport and we want to visit the NASA. What type of transport do you suggest? We cannot rent cars for everyone and are on a tight budget. Thank you for your help
Hi, Veronica Can you tell us the best time to visit to see rodeo and country music events in 2015
That is a great question and I have your answer. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo takes place each year the 1st three weeks in March. Rodeo time has been a tradition in Houston since 1932, and the three-week extravaganza at NRG Park continues to consume the city every spring. The kickoff for the Houston Livestock Show and RodeoTM is the Rodeo Parade, after trail riders ride into town and set up camp in Memorial Park. All 20 championship rodeo competitions are concluded with entertainment by music superstars.
