I just relocated here in Houston and have two boys under 5 and don't really know of some fun and exciting family things my family and I can go. Is there any apple orchards here to pick your own apples and get cider donuts?
Great question. Unfortunately apples don't grow well here in Houston. But we do have some great pick-your-own style farms in the area. Also here's a rundown of fun things to do with kids around Houston. And here's an itinerary that you can pull from for more ideas. Finally, our calendar of events is full of things happening on a regular basis, from festivals to museum exhibits and much more.
I hope this helps.
what's the easiest way to see a calendar of events, specifically, plays or concerts that are happening on the 12th of November.

Hello Veronica, 2012 i moved from Germany to the Houston area. In October my brother will come over to visit. I will have to work a couple of days while his stay. His English skills are very limited. Therefore i'm looking for tourist information (brochures, flyer etc.) written in German so he can do things on his own and explore Houston the days 'll be at work. Thank you very much. Regards Irene
Thanks for reaching out. We actually have offices all over the world with translations of our materials in a number of different languages. I'm going to email you seperately and get information so that we can send you and your brother information in German.
I was wondering if we can park,catch the light rail from the Fannin south stop to the stadium and where is the stop located once we get to the stadium?
You can park at Fannin and take the MetroRail to the stadium. It's the NRG Park stop and you can't miss it.
We are wanting to park near the Spaghetti Factory and ride to the Texan game and back. Where is the nearest station to the restaurant and where do we get off
Spaghetti Warehouse is located on Commerce St. between Main and Travis streets. You have two options for catching the MetroRail from there. You can walk to Main and then south (away from the bayou) three blocks to the Preston St. stop. Or you could walk over the bayou to the UH Downtown stop. Walking toward Preston is at least in the right direction. You will then get off at the NRG Park stop, which is close to the end of the rail line. Click here to see a map of the MetroRail for reference.
Hopefully this helps!
