Need to know where to go and what to do in Houston? Give a tip, post a comment or ask Veronica.
Arriving 18:30 British Air. from London. Want to overnight at the airport for a Unired flight to SAn Jose, CA. Which airport hotel is the most conient?shf6
If you're looking to stay close to the airport, I suggest Houston Airport Marriott At George Bush Intercontinental. It's so close, the airport tram actually connects to the hotel.
Hope this helps,
Does Houston have any area with cowboy/western style, like the Ft Worth stockyards? Thank you!
Hi-I am looking for a store that sells rhinestone iron On's, specifically San Antonio Spurs. Is there a location on Harwin Rd. that sells them? Thank you for your help.
I'm not sure how much Spurs gear you'll find in Rockets country! But, I did a quick google search and you may have an easier time buying online.
Hope that helps!
My 9 y/o dgt and I are using the city pass this week. Any hotel recommendations?
Glad to hear you're taking advantage of the discounts with CityPASS! Downtown there are a variety of hotel options to choose from, and you can catch the MetroRAIL directly into the Museum District and to the Houston Zoo.
I hope that helps and enjoy your time!
Hello Veronica.. questions...can you guide me how to get to the Harrisburg bus station.... im at Cullen blvd...im planning to leave around 5;30 to be there before 7;am question...what bus numbers should I get..and how much is the ticket cost? since 1998 I have not use a metro bus.. please help....
Unfortunately, there is no easy way to answer your question. The routes and times change regularly depending on the day and time. The best way to answer your question is to use the Plan Your Trip feature that Metro offers. You can access it here and it will tell you what you need to do to get where you're going fastest.
Dear Ms. Veronica, My aunts from Virginia will come to Houston for 1 week. I suggested them NASA and Galveston, they said they have been to Florida which they said are prettier. I already checked the suggested itinerary. Also, I think Virginia is close to Smithsonian so they may not be interested in museum. Would you recommend me some unique places of Houston that are suitable to seniors? Thank you, Anthony.
I will give you a few other suggestions for sure. Check out this page on Historic Houston, which might intrigue your aunts. There is great architecture and a wonderful spot called Bayou Bend that was the home of the "First Lady of Texas" Ima Hogg, which I believe they might be interested in. Other places that come to mind include the San Jacinto Monument, Battleship Texas (though it is not air conditioned and can be very hot in the summer) and the Heritage Society museum which explores the early history of Houston.
Down in Galveston definitely check out the Strand Historic District and the Bishop's Palace home tour.
Where are the best places to go if you have a small dog?
We are visiting Houston and will be staying in the Galleria area. We want to visit the space centre. Can you tell me if we can use public transport to get there and if so which bus and where does it leave from please thank you
Space Center Houston is 32 miles from the Galleria, roughly 40 minutes away. Unfortunately there are no direct public transportation options from Houston to Space Center Houston. That said, a taxi will cost roughly $85. I recommend also checking out Uber, a ride sharing program in the city that may offer a cheaper rate.
I hope that helps,
What airport should I use if a person is picking me up? They are driving from Mcallen TX to New Orleans LA.
Hi Veronica we are coming to Houston for my birthday weekend 7/24-26 and would love ideas of things to do during our two night stay near the galleria. One thing being the museum of natural science that I know about. but is there anything going on in the city that would be fun to know about?
First of all, Happy Birthday! There are plenty of options for things to do in Houston. I recommend starting with one our suggested itineraries so you can cater your trip based on your interests. The Houston Museum of Natural Science is a great choice, but don't forget to check out some of the other 18 museums within walking distance in Houston's Museum District!
Food is also a pretty important part of Houston's culture, so I recommend starting with this list of 15 Iconic Houston Meals. For nightlife, you'll find all you need here.
That should send you on your way to a great weekend. Of course, if you have any other questions just ask!
