My aunt is 55 and she will be coming to town from May 10th thru June 15. She is the MOST fun,loving, positive, outgoing person I have ever met in my life! She is single and loves her life, but she would like to meet men so she can chat and have a good time with in the Houston area. The men can be a little younger or her same age. By the way did I mention she is 55, but she looks 40!!. I really appreciate your suggestions and advice. Thank in advance.
Hmm, has your aunt tried an online dating service before? I don't know of any place in Houston where singles go to meet up. But, if you let me know what type of activities your aunt likes to do, I could suggest some fun places to go!
We will be staying at the Hilton Americas and have time (about 4 hours) the morning of 3/30? Is this enough time to visit the space center? How would we get there? Which activities should we do? Thank you.
Space Center is about 30 minutes drive, south from downtown. You need to rent a car to get down there (or take a cab). You could make it a quick trip before heading out.
Definitely look into the Level 9 Tram Tour while you are there!

The cab fare would be approximately $65 from downtown to Space Center Houston. So, around $130 round trip back to the Hilton Americas.

how much would a cab cost?

I have a few coworkers that will be coming in to town for a class on April 6-9th . Afterwards we would like to go out and enjoy some activities what do you recommend. Are there any sports venus going on or fun activities in the area. We will be located at I10 Katy Freeway and the Sam Houston Toll Way near Memorial City Mall.
If you guys can sneak away during the day, the Shell Houston Open is wrapping up April 6th and the Astros will be in town, playing in the afternoon April 6th and 7th. Also, the Rockets will be playing Wednesday night, April 9th, over at Toyota Center.
Hope this helps,
My husband and I are thinking of moving to Houston to be near our grandkids. We are retired and would like to be active. What kinds of activities are there for retired people? Sandi
Houston has so much to do! What are you favorite activities? There are tons of hike and bike trails in the city and fun things to do outside. There are golf courses throughout the city - you can pretty much golf in Houston all year round.
I will be in town for a few days visiting my mother who is in her 80's but gets around well. What is there to do during the day that is not too strenous but interesting for 2 gay men and a mother?
If you love the arts, be sure to check out the museum district. With 20 museums in walking distance, there is plenty to see and do. The Magna Carta exhibit will be at the Museum of Natural Science through August, and definitely check out the Happy Hour Thursdays at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
If you all get any down time, look into www.MyGayHouston.com for LGBT acitvities in town.
Hello Veronica, I will be in Houston beginning of May for a business conference at the Reliant Center. Any recommendations for things to experience near that area between 2 May and 8 May? Thank you, Annette
Welcome to Houston!
Reliant is on the light rail connecting the Reliant area to different parts of the city - meaning you can do and see a ton of the city without a car!
I suggest checking out the museum district - there are 20 museums in walking distance! When you're in town, the Magna Carta exhibit will be at the Museum of Natural Science and be sure to stop by Happy Hour Thursdays at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
The rail also connects you to downtown, home of the theater district. Evita will be showing at the Hobby Center, so you should definitely check that out if you love performing arts.
Here is our calendar of events for the dates you'll be in town. Be sure to check back often as new events are added every day.

Are you looking to start a baby registry? Or you'd like to host a baby shower?
I host an annual conference called 3DCAMP Houston, and I am having a hard time finding a venue that can accommodate a crowd of 500-1000 people. We hosted our first year at the Houston Technology Center when we had 115 attendees, and year two was at the University of Houston Natural Science and Mathematics building with 300 attendees. Year 3 was at the UH Architecture school where we had 550 attendees, and the space was too small for us. We don't expect the conference to get much bigger than 500-800 attendees this year, so we really aren't big enough to move to a proper convention space like GRB or Reliant. Also, our conference is targeted at a wider audience, and the admission price is very low (~$30 for a full day of lectures + two meals), so we can't really afford a space like GRB. Do you have any ideas for us? Thanks for your help! Dave
Check out our venue search tool. You can narrow your search by capacity, meeting space or even area of town.
Hope this helps,
Hello, my wife and I recently purchased a home in Katy. We are having our 1 yr anniversary this weekend and staying downtown and going to the rodeo. What are some 'must do' things to see or places to eat in Downtown?
I may have missed your weekend outing, but definitely check out our itineraries and things to do around Rodeo section for future ideas. Also, next time you're in downtown, be sure to check out Market Square Park for great dining and nightlife.
