one month visit to TX
Submitted by daniel from usually ny but now HUMBLE TX on 01-14-2014
Question:

Hi. College scholarship student from NYC visiting Humble and Houston for a one month internship. Staying with a lovely bednbreakfst. family in Humble for one month. This state and town is wonderful! Much better cost of liv'g. than NY! Do you know of any good discounts to NASA Space Center for a college kid? I know of citypass and $5. off booking online but I want to treat my host family which means buying 3 tix for them and 1 tic for me plus parking. If you have any wise wisdom, do please let me know. I am taking them this coming weekend. Also, I think I am gonna convince my family to think about a move to Houston area or Humble! Any deeper coupons or discounts most welcome. Thanks for helping people! Daniel S., college junior from NYC here for a month

Answer:

Hello,

I'm happy to hear you're enjoying Houston! It looks like you've done your research and found the best deals already. Booking online is the cheapest route, just $17.95 per adult and parking is $6. If you have a CityPass, which is $46, you can visit Space Center and many other attractions without any additional cost.

For more information on current discounts and coupons, check here

Holiday Monday
Submitted by Emma from Galveston on 01-14-2014
Question:

Hi there, my mom and I are going to the MLK Grande Parade on Monday. We are wondering what cheap/budget/free activities or attractions we could do after the parade that will be open on the holiday? Or will most things be open?

Answer:

Hi,

There should be plenty of activities open during this weekend. Just a short hop away fromt he parade is the museum district with free entrance to suit your budget.  Here is a list of other free activities you might be interested in. I recommend double checking their website if you find something that interests you, just to make sure they're open.

ice skating
Submitted by Pat from Louisville, Ky on 01-13-2014
Question:

I have two daughters that ice skate in competition and i might be relocating to Houston. Where can i find instructors and ice rinks?

Answer:

Hi,

I found a few ice skating clubs around Houston. Houston Figure Skating Club, called HoustonFSC ‎, the Memorial Figure Skating Club of Houston, Sharpstown School of Skating and Starz of Houston Figure Skating Club.

Based on my search it looks like there are more. Once you have an idea of where in Houston you might relocate to, take a look at this search for a map of locations so you have a better idea of what might work.

For recreational ice skating you can always head to the Galleria Ice Skating Rink. 

I hope that helps!

Houston Excursion
Submitted by Billy from Ithaca, NY on 01-10-2014
Question:

Hi Veronica! I work for a software company in Ithaca, NY. We are awarding one of our salespersons an incentive for top sales in 2013. He lives in Houston with his wife and 2 children. I have a budget of $500.00 to plan an evening for him and/or his wife and children. Since they are Houston natives I would like to come up with something unique that they have probably never done before. Things I have considered are: Limo and dinner at Oxheart, Star-Fleet dinner cruise on the Star Gazer Yacht, A night at the Houstonian, A night at Blisswood, Hiring a personal chef from BigCityChefs. These all sound great, but I fear they may be too "touristy". Your help would be greatly appreciated, any ideas?

Answer:

Hi,

I think a limo and dinner at Oxheart is a great suggestion, as is Star-Fleet dinner cruise on the Star Gazer Yacht. Both are really great options I (as a Houstonite) would love to do. For other great options, check out this weekend itinerary of our top suggestions for couples. If you are looking for more family-friendly ideas, I suggest throwing in a few CityPass tickets

I hope that helps!

Discount women's clothing
Submitted by Dave from Dallas on 01-07-2014
Question:

My wife loves to shop at Half of Half, which Houston does not have. Any suggestions for a similar type deep discount place? Places like Plato's Closet or even Nordstrom's rack generally too expensive for her taste.

Answer:

Hi,

For some great discount shopping, check out Harwin Drive for bargain shopping. Buffalo Exchange is also a great place to find discount women's (and men's) clothes for a discount. 

I hope that helps!

Best,
Veronica

Lunch after ice skatting
Submitted by Anne Bendixen from Friendswood on 01-05-2014
Question:

Hello Ms Veronica, My 12 year old Son and I will go ice skating at Discovery Green tomorrow. Do you have any good suggestions for lunch afterwards in the area? No chains or fast food, we have plenty of that here. Kasper likes Hard Rock Café and sushi (!) I'd love to find a cozy place to warm up with some good food after a surely cold day full of fun. Thanks so much in advance, Anne Bendixen

Answer:

Hi,

Thanks for your question and what a great day to choose ice skating! There is definitely winter in the air at the moment. That said, there are two places to eat at Discovery Green, one of which is The Grove, which has a nice atmosphere and is plenty cozy. You can check them both out here

If neither of those are appealing, you can find Azuma Sushi & Robata is about a 10 minute walk from Discovery Green. 

You can find all the downtown restaurants by going to www.visithouston.com, clicking Restaurants, then choosing your area of town. Here is what I found downtown. 

I hope that helps and have a great time!

Best,
Veronica

Room for rent
Submitted by Ana from Buenos Aires on 01-05-2014
Question:

Hi Veronica, I´ve been looking for a room to rent in the Medical Center, as I am a doctor going as an Observer there. I´ve found a place called TMCLIVING, do you know it? Would you reccomend it? Looking forward to hear from you, Ana

Answer:

Hi Ana,

I'm afraid I'm not familiar with TMCLiving, so I can't make specific recommendations to stay with them. However, based on a quick look at their website it seems like a good option considering your needs, and it's geared toward those in your particular situation--looking for housing around the Med Center. You might also consider one of these hotel properties that have extended stay options. I hope this helps!

Travrlling from the Hotel to Airport
Submitted by Neo from Thailand on 01-03-2014
Question:

How much does the cab cost from Club Quarters Houston, 720 Fannin St Houston, TX 77002 to Bush Airport? Are there any transports from the hotel to airport? Thank you for your recommendations.

Answer:

Hello, 

Thanks for your question. The estimated cab fare would cost about $50. I recommend asking your hotel if they have service to the airport, or you can check with Super Shuttle and see if they will pick you up from your hotel.

I hope that helps!

Best, 

Veronica
