Veronica, Which is the cheapest shopping in Houston? Which is cheaper the Galleria or the Premium Outlet?
Houston has great shopping - something for everyone. If you're looking for inexpensive shops, the Houston Premium Outlets in Cypress as well as Katy Mills Mall in Katy (which also has some factory outlet stores) are great. You may also want to check out the shopping along Harwin, which offers some fun designer look-a-likes.
Depending on what you're searching for, the Premium Outlets will more than likely have better deals than the Galleria.
How do I get to the Houston Premium Outlet from 400 Dallas St.? Bus? Train? What are the rates? How long does it take? Thxs
There are daily shopping tours to Houston Premium Outlets leaving from Galleria, Downtown, Medical Center and Energy Corridor area hotels via Houston Global Solutions. Please call (281) 558-5882 for pricing and reservations--this will definitely be the most inexpensive way to get there. Additional departure times and pick-up locations available for groups of 5 or more.
I hope this helps!
I am traveling to Houston in two weeks to visit my boyfriend. Due to work, I missed his birthday (September 6th) and wanted to plan a romantic weekend, candle light dinner and all. However, I am not familiar with the area and he recently moved there. Any help with romantic but not stuffy ideas/restaurants would be greatly appreciated. We are in the our early to mid thirties. Thank you, Loving From a Distance

Hi My daughters birthday is in March. We would love to find a place that will allow us to have a Princess theme (Tangled/Brave) etc. We want her to have a great time! Any ideas? Suggestions?
What if you rented out either the River Oaks Movie Theater or Sundance Cinemas and showed one of the movies on the big screen? Sundance also has food, so you can order pizzas, popcorn, etc. for all the guests.
Let me know if you like that idea or would like me to send you a few more.

I am not sure if all the kids would sit through a movie..... Do you have any more suggestions? Thank you for your time
hello Veronica, because i will be in Houston next sunday, i would like really to know the actual weather forecast..... i mean temperature...if i can put in the bag tshirts or something different.... the weather condition that usually we find on the web....are not so good... please let me know. just another question, to go to the galleria shopping center...should i take the bus 82, right?.... because i really like to walk, to explore the city...and so on...i don't care if the location is far from downtown.....do you think that it is too hard to go to the Galleria by walking from downtown and maybe take the bus (which one?) to go back?... i have seen that an inportant monument is the Orange show and then also the Water Wall, do you think that they are something that i must visit....as the first time in Houston? thanks Francesco
Weather in Houston changes all the time. Your best bet is to go with what you find on the web.
The Galleria is about 8 miles from downtown Houston, and it would take you about 3 hours to walk. I suppose it would be possible for you to walk--Westheimer would be the best street to walk--if you have the time.
I would go to the Orange Show if there was a concert happening while you're in town--it's a very cool place to see a show. But if there isn't a concert, I think I'd catch it on your next trip.
If you're going to be in the Galleria anyway, you might as well stop by the Water Wall. It's very beautiful, and it's right across the street.
What shows will be at theatres at Thanksgiving time, i.e., November 22 - 27.
Here is a rundown of what's happening in the theater scene that week. You have The Nutcracker, A Christmas Carol and even A Chorus Line (though this performance is happening down in Galveston). We will be updating the calendar as this time gets closer so please check back on the same link as the time draws nearer!
Hi Veronica, I will be going to Houston from 9/18/2012 to 9/21/2012. What are some day events/attractions I can attend that I wouldn't find in New York/New Jersey? Thanks.
So glad you're going to be staying with us for a few days!
Here is our Calendar of Events for the four days you'll be here. A few items that I'd like to call out to you in particular:
Those are just a few thoughts. If you are interested in something else in particular, let me know and I'll try to help you out. Also see our Dining section for information on great restaurants to try out while you're here.
My friend is turning 50 this month and I am trying to find something FUN to do, and something different. I want it to be a day to remember. Any suggestions?
Well I think it all depends on how adventurous you guys want to get. You could go skydiving at Skydive Spaceland. Or head out deep sea fishing with the Galveston Fishing Guides.
For something more refined, you could go to a polo match at the Houston Polo Club. Or perhaps set sail on Galveston Bay with Star Fleet Yachts. There are also several behind the scenes tours around town. Plus a number of places offer interesting classes that you guys could take together.
If none of these strikes you as unique enough, check out our complete Things to Do section for more ideas!
Is there any activities pertaining to the french community here in Houston
I think I have just the thing for you. The French Alliance located in Montrose offers great programming on French culture. From concerts to wine tastings, there are always events happening. I think you'll find this to your liking. As for French restaurants, check out our list here.
