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!

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.


Hi Stephanie!

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.

Make sure to check out our Things to Do section for information on museums, sports and unique Houston attractions. If you know the specific day your planning, you can check out our Calendar of Events for up-to-date happenings.

I hope that helps and you all have fun!

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


Hi 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.



Taxi costs
Submitted by Barry Levene from Liverpool, United Kingdom on 07-15-2014

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


Hi Barry,

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,

Texas visit
Submitted by Elizabeth from Toronto on 07-12-2014

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.


Hi Elizabeth,

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!

Hi Navis,

That's a great question! We offer a great resource for all things Houston on www.VisitHouston.com. On our Calendar of Events, there are a lot of options for things to do. I took the liberty of doing a search for the dates you will be in town. Check out the results here.

For places to eat, check out our Restaurant section.  And for more ideas, here more than a few Things to Do!

I hope that helps and hope you have a great visit!

Public transportation to NASA
Submitted by Gloria from College Station on 07-08-2014

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 Gloria,

Look into Super Shuttle , Cool Tours or The Wave .  I know The Wave typically stays closer to town, but they may be able to work something out for you guys.



Submitted by Gordon from Scotland on 07-08-2014

Hi, Veronica Can you tell us the best time to visit to see rodeo and country music events in 2015


Hi Gordon!

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.
