Harwin St.
Submitted by Donna Bryan from Port Neches, TX on 11-06-2014
Question:

What days and hours are the shops open on Harwin St.?

Answer:

Hi Donna,

It really varies from store to store. Here is our guide to the Harwin District but I highly suggest calling ahead if you're going on Sundays or off times to ensure the places you want to hit up are open.

Tour Guide
Submitted by Teka from Orlando FL on 11-05-2014
Question:

Hi Veronica, I have a group of 15 to 30 travelers going to Houston in Feb 2015. They requested a full day City Tour with a step on guide in Houston. We have the bus, we just need a tour Guide. Can you help? Thanks, Teka Ellis Infinity SAS

Answer:

Hi Teka,

Thanks so much for your question! While we have a lot of tours offered in Houston, I'm not too sure about hiring individual tour guides. I recommend checking out our Houston Tours page, choosing which type of tour sounds good, and calling to see if they might be able to work with you on a guide.

I hope that helps,

Veronica

metrolink
Submitted by Sylvia S from bayport cruise on 11-03-2014
Question:

I'm assuming the bus or metrolink does not go to and from bayport cruise terminal. I'd have to cab or supper shuttle? I'm a solo traveller so which would be best? By the looks of it price would be the same going downtown. also what hotel would you recommend for a solo. Don't want very expensive but at same time somewhere fairly safe. I see downtown or museum district most popular. I'm only staying 2 days thank you

Answer:

Hi Sylvia,

You're correct - the best way to get down to the Bayport Cruise Terminal is via cab or super shuttle. You may also look into Uber too.

Regarding hotel stay, I'd recommend the Residence Inn or Embassy Suites Downtown.  Maybe check out Hotel Icon - they may have a good rate depending on when you're staying. 

If you stay downtown, you have access to the light rail, which can take you down to the Museum District, Midtown, or NRG Park area. 

Hope this helps,

Veronica

Travelling about
Submitted by Irene from Aberdeen Scotland UK on 11-03-2014
Question:

Hello Veronica Husband and I (72 & 64) looking for easiest way to get from George Bush International to our downtown hotel no driving please

Answer:

Hi Irene,

I suggest you all catch a taxi to your hotel.  Once you get your luggage, look for the "taxi" exit, and there should be a line of them waiting.  It is about 25 miles into downtown and will be approximately $60 one way.

Hope this helps,

Veronica

Airport Transportation
Submitted by Loretta from Arizona on 11-01-2014
Question:

We can fly into either IAH or Hobby. Which is best for public transportation to Museum District (Menil and Fine Arts)? Please also advise time required. Thank you.

Answer:
Hi Loretta,

The only public transportation from either airport is via Metro bus

Approximate time to get to the Museum District: 

  •  IAH: 25 miles, anywhere from 35 - 45 minutes depending on traffic
  • Hobby: 12 miles, anywhere from 30 - 30 minutes depending on traffic

I suggest you look into taking a taxi, super shuttle or Uber from the airport to the Museum District.  Once you are there, you can use the Metro Light Rail to move around to Downtown, Midtown or NRG Park area. 

Hope this helps,

Veronica

Transport.
Submitted by Simon from Taree, NSW, Australia on 10-31-2014
Question:

Gidday from Ozzie, Veronica. My family are planning to come over next year and plan on spending a few days in Houston. We want to go and visit some friends in Liberty while there so could you please tell me what public transport there is to Liberty as we won't have a car? Your help would be appreciated. thanks

Answer:

Hi Simon,

Unfortunately I'm not familiar with the public transportation out in Liberty. Looking at their webpage, I don't see anything about transportation information.  You may want to check out the Metro bus schedules to see if they have any bus routes in Liberty.

Otherwise, I'd look at scheduling a private car/shuttle like Super Shuttle. Feel free to check out our other recommended transportation partners.

Best,

Veronica

holiday
Submitted by pearl & Adrian from england\ cornwall on 10-30-2014
Question:

Hi Veronica we are coming to Houston next April on holiday on the 8th till the 15th we were looking forward to seeing a Rodeo but have looked and very dissappointed that we can not see one while we are here do you know if there is one near that we can get to on public transport as we have not got use of a car, also we are interested in watching country and westen singing and dancing so if you can suggest anywhere that would be great and anything else you can suggest would be great many thanks look forward to hearing back from you.

Answer:

Hi Pearl and Adrian,

Unfortunately our rodeo is only in March each year. Other months we really don't have a lot of real cowboy culture to offer. That said, we do have this roundup of places to see and experience a little of that urban cowboy feel.

Also, you can pay a visit to George Ranch Historical Park west of the city. Several companies will take you out there from Downtown by reservation, including Houston City Tours

Finally, pay a visit to our Itineraries section to discover more fun stuff to do in Houston around your interests.

Family Christmas
Submitted by Leslie from Texas on 10-29-2014
Question:

I'm looking for a Houston area hotel or resort in which to spend Christmas with extended family. Children's activities would be a plus along with a Christmas brunch or dinner. Thank you, Leslie

Answer:

Hi Leslie,

Good timing! We're actually working on this piece now for our website, and it will be up on the homepage in the first week of November - be sure to check back for that.  Until then, check out the 2013 round up of holiday events to get an idea of what'll be going on in December.

Regarding Christmas brunch or dinner, more than likely hotels are still working on their 2014 schedule.  But, traditionally, the Four Seasons, Hotel Granduca, The Houstonian, The St. Regis and The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center have hosted a Christmas dinner or brunch in the past. 

Best,

Veronica
