My family has decide to visit Texas during the July 4th weekend. We are looking at Houston. We have 3 children ages are 8, and two of are 13 years old. We would like a pool or lazy river at the hotel and free breakfast would be nice. What are some attractions for the kids?
Some attractions you guys need to see are the Houston Zoo, Downtown Aquarium and Houston Museum of Natural Science. These attractions are also included on the Houston CityPASS, which will save you on admissions as well!
Be sure to check out the fireworks while you're in town over the 4th!

Sorry I missed your question! I hope you found a great spot to watch the fireworks!

If I want to see the fireworks in downtown Houston (without necessarily attending any of the festivals/festivities), where would you recommend parking and what time should we get there?
Hi, I wanted to know if there are any discounts or promo codes for Freedom over Texas 2014. I know Admission is $8 and children 5 and under are free, but I have a large family. is there any discounts?
There are no free or discount tickets to Freedom Over Texas. They used to accept canned goods as admission, but no longer do that.
I'd suggest buying your ticket online before midnight July 3rd. If you buy your tickets on July 4th, the price is $10.
Hope this helps,
we have only a few hours in Houston and would like some info on what to do in the buffalo speedway area
The Upper Kirby/Greenway Plaza neighborhood is the closest to Buffalo Speedway. Also you can shop and dine around Rice Village. I think you will find some interesting things to do, including checking out what's on display at Rice Gallery or perhaps looking into classes at UrbanCHEF.
We will visit Houston this fall, flying into IAH, departing from Hobby (due to airline). We'd like to visit the GHW Bush Library and NASA. Without renting a car, can we get to these locations? Will probably stay in the Museum district area. Many thanks.
I'm coming to Houston around Christmas time with my family. What kind of activities are there in the metro Houston area ab2that are good for me to take my 3 year old son to?
You are definitely ahead of the game! Let me link you to our 2013 Holiday round up so you can get an idea of the things that were happening in 2013. I definitely recommend Zoo Lights, where the Houston Zoo comes to life at night with christmas lights and festive holiday music. Also, there is an ice skating rink in Discovery Green between Thanksgiving and New Years each year.
Definitely check back when it gets closer to the Holidays for our 2014 round up of holiday activities.
Hi Veronica, Our company resides in downtown Houston. We are trying to come up with a group outing for our Department Christmas Party this year. Do you have any ideas on what we could do? Last year we chartered a bus down to Kemah for the day, took a ride on the Fantasea, lunch and played bingo with prizes. I'm trying to find something really unique and fun this year. Need your suggestions.
Coming to Houston for weekend with 14 yo son. Need some suggestions on what to do on Friday afternoon and Sunday. Going to Astros game Saturday. Thinking about Houston Space Center sunday. Recommendations? History? Guided tours? Will be staying downtown near Minute Maid Park. thanks.
Sounds like a great weekend with your son!
I'd also recommend you guys check out Lucky Strike bowling lanes or the Downtown Aquarium. If you guys are interested in museums, jump on the light rail and head down to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. The Palentology Hall just opened last year and they have the Magna Carta exhibit happening now.
Hope this helps!
Hi Veronica looking to open an office (Im an esthetician/facials)in Texas, where is the best place (city or town) in your opinion with not a lot of competition,may be a "high end" little town ..thank you for your help!
As far as towns in Texas, I'm only really familiar with Houston.
For Houston, check with the Greater Houston Partnerships website. They have a ton of references for individuals and businesses.
Hope this helps,
Hello! My family of four will be visiting Houston this weekend and we have the citypass. We are going to NASA, Kemah, the aquarium and the childrens museum. I was wondering where the best location to stay at a hotel would be?
Welcome to Houston!
The attractions you're visiting are all around the city, so you'll definitely need to use your car to get around. If I were you, I'd probably want to stay downtown. Hotel Icon is a great option since it is right next to Market Square Park, where there are some great restaurants you can walk to. The Sam Houston Hotel and Magnolia Hotel are great options too (Magnolia has a roof top pool!). The Residence Inn or Embassy Suites in downtown are good options on a budget.
Have a great trip!
Hi Veronica, We are visiting family during July 4th weekend. The young adults age group 30-45 would like a casual dress atmosphere. Soulful Jazz Club with a little R&B mix. Where can we go have a great time!!!
Sounds like a fun weekend!
