Visit
Submitted by Angela from UK on 09-25-2013
Question:

Hi Veronica, We are coming to Houston next year for one night as part of a two week tour. We would like to visit the space centre, where would you suggest we stay to be in a good position to visit the space centre but still be close to nice restaurants for the evening. We like a luxury hotel. I guess we would not have time to do anything else as will only have an afternoon by the time we take travelling and checking in and out of hotels into consideration?.

Answer:

Hi Angela,

I'd suggest you all stay in downtown - you will be close to dining and nightlife options, while not being too far from Space Center Houston.  While in downtown, I suggest you check out Market Square Park, where a lot of great dining and nightlife selections are concentrated.  For hotel options, you should check out Hotel Icon (closest to Market Square Park) or the Magnolia Hotel or Sam Houston Hotel. If you have extra time while you're here, you can take the light rail down to the Museum District to check out some museums - Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and the Houston Museum of Natural Science are always great stops just off the light rail. 

Space Center is about  26 miles to the south of Houston.  It's probably best to rent a car to get down there, otherwise you'll need to take a taxi.  There is a public bus that heads down that way, and you can check out the routes and times here

Hope this helps,

Veronica

public transport airport to Katy
Submitted by elizabeth harley from Kelowna British Columbia on 09-25-2013
Question:

Can you advise how I can get from airport to or near Katy - I do not have a car.

Answer:

Hi Elizabeth,

Are you flying into IAH or Hobby Airport? Either airport, there really isn't a good public transportation option out to Katy.  You could either take a cab (~ 45 miles from IAH or ~40 miles from Hobby) or look into Super Shuttle to see if they can drop you off where you need to go.  Other than that, I'd look into renting a car, which is probably going to be the cheapest option. 

Hope this helps!

Cheap pots for plants
Submitted by Cindy from Katy on 09-24-2013
Question:

Veronica, Do you know if there is a place on Harwin that sells "cheap" flower pots? Thanks, Cindy

Answer:

Hi Cindy,

I don't know of any place in Harwin that specifically sells cheap flower pots - I'd actually suggest you check out Garden Ridge or a craft store, like Hobby Lobby.  

Hope this helps!

Texas Custom Regulation
Submitted by Serhii from Kazakhstan on 09-20-2013
Question:

Hi, Kindly ask you to clarify what are the Texas custom regulation about the quantity of Alcohol (vine) that is permitted to bring to the state from abroad? Thank you in advance Best regard, Serhii

Answer:

Generally, one liter of alcohol per person may be entered into the U.S. duty-free by travelers who are 21 or older.  Most States restrictions on the amount of alcohol that can be brought into that State apply only to residents of that State.

Hey again, 



Ok, the tours are ADA accessible but there is no one signing during the tour for the hearing impaired. The visually impaired would be able to hear the tour guide, but there isn't any extra descriptives for these participants. I hope this helps!

Submitted by Jane Holdren from Laredo on 09-05-2013
Question:

Where can I get a good cheap lobster dinner near the IAH airport?

Answer:

Hi Jane,

There is actually a Pappadeaux restaurant (locally owned here in Houston) in terminal E at IAH. They serve a nice lobster. Also, if you're outside of the airport, you could check out Pappas Seafood House in Humble. 

Hope this helps!
