Layover
Submitted by Lynda from Canada on 01-31-2014
Question:

I will be in Houston for a layover on Feb 23rd. Looking for a nice place to stay not too far from George Bush Intercontinental Airport but with access to good restaurants and things to do. I don't arrive until early afternoon, but would like to spend my time there doing something entertaining rather than sitting in a hotel. Also looking for a great place to dine and are open to trying any type of cuisine. Is there access to downtown other than by taxi? Looking at the rates, it could be expensive for a return trip from the airport area. Thanks!

Answer:

Hi,Since you're flying into IAH, you can take a cab (about $55) into Downtown (if you're willing to pay).

Head downtown and visit Discovery Green park and The Heritage Society. The Grove is a lovely restaurant inside the park that would be a good lunch spot. You could also explore downtown by downloading audio walking tours--it's a really cool way to learn about the city. From downtown, you can also take the light rail and visit the Museum District and Hermann Park. There are so many lovely places there, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Museum of Natural Science, The Menil Collection and more.


If you want to stay near IAH, there is the National Museum of Funeral History. It's a quirky place whose motto is "everyday above ground is a good one." Here is a list of restaurants in that area as well. 


Hope this helps!

cookoffs
Submitted by rudy from magnolia on 01-30-2014
Question:

My girlfriend and I are wanting to know if there are any bbq cookoffs this coming wknd around houston

Answer:

Hi,

This weekend I found a chilli cookoff at Cottonwood this Saturday (though not BBQ, it should be tasty!). On Sunday, there is a BBQ Block Party at St. Arnold's Brewing Company.

For this weekend the options appear slim, though closer to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, there will be BBQ abound!

I hope that helps.

Best,
Veronica

Travel to downtown
Submitted by Misael from Pasadena on 01-29-2014
Question:

Hi there I live in Pasadena close to 45 south, I would like to know how to get to 1001 Preston in downtown, I"ll be riding daily in the next couple of weeks. Thank you

Answer:

Hello,

Thanks for your question. If you're driving from Pasadena, Google maps directions can help you on your way. If you want to use public transportation, they may be a few options. You can enter your starting/ending points here and get information on bus stop locations. 

 I hope that helps.

Old town Spring
Submitted by Cathy from West Coast Canada on 01-28-2014
Question:

Planning a trip with a layover in Houston. Looking at options for what to do and thought a visit to Old Town Spring sounded good. Will be staying at an airport hotel, how long should we plan to get there, visit and have a meal and return? Any tips or other ideas? Will be on a sunday afternoon, March 9th. Have from about noon and staying overnight. Thanks!

Answer:

Hi Cathy,

Old Town Spring is a great experience during a layover. There are some great shops, restaurants, antique stores and more to do there. On Sundays some shops are closed and those that are open close around 5 pm, so just be aware of that. It will only take you about 20 minutes or so to get to Old Town Spring from the airport area. You may also want to visit the National Funeral Museum nearby. It may sound morbid but it's actually a really fascinating museum. I think you would enjoy it.

I hope this helps!

Day trip M-F
Submitted by Beatrice Lillie from N.E. Multi-Service Senior Center Center on 01-22-2014
Question:

Hello! Can you suggest Day Trips for M-F in or no farther than 75mi outside Houston, Tx. They are tried of Museums. They like Zydeco, Festivals, etc.? We need suggestions for March 12th. Thank you!!

Answer:

Hi,

Thanks for your question. A place to start would be our Outside the Beltway roundup, which highlights some quick and fun trips. Also, it's definitely worth noting that the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo will be in town with a lot of performances, including Keith Urban on March 14. Another tasty option is taking a trip (about 70 miles) out to Blue Bell Creamery for a tour and a scoop (or two) of ice cream. And you'll be in luck because tours only take place weekdays.

I would recommend taking a look at our calender of events a little closer to the date to check for any music festivals that might pop up. Sometimes events are added closer to the month. 

I hope that helps!

Best,
Veronica

Visit
Submitted by Dora from Odessa, TX on 01-17-2014
Question:

We visit Houston once a month for Doctor visits. We sometimes stay over and need a more economical hotel very close Fannin St. to where we don't have to move our vehicle too much. THANKS

Answer:

Hi,

I'm happy to help. Here is a list of hotels, including pricing, in the medical center. If you don't want to rely on your car, you can leave it parked and hop on the METRORail, which runs through the medical center. 

I hope that helps!
