Need to know where to go and what to do in Houston? Give a tip, post a comment or ask Veronica.
Hi Veronica. My family (wife, daughter (19), and son (14)) will be in Houston on July 24th after 5pm and until following morning. Can you suggest some things to do and places to eat (mid-price range) for us in that time frame?
Hi Veronica, i will be in houston on July 5th thru July 10, 2015, need something fun to do. I noticed the food truck festival is going on the next week, is there no other events similar to that going on or a fun day in the park with music.
Thanks for reaching out!
Here are a few events happening while you're here that you might be interested in.
New York City Queens at Nightingale
Straight Ahead Jazz Tuesdays at Red Cat
Here is the full calendar for the time you'll be here if you want to look at other options.
If I purchase the city pass does the boardwalk include the rides too.
Yes, it includes all rides except for the Iron Eagle and Boardwalk Beast. Those can be purchased for an extra cost, but at a discount for CityPASS holders. More details here.
Hope this helps.
New to the area, is there a place where I can park and ride the train to Minute Maid for the game tonight. Also I would need to ride the train back.
Hi Veronica I am looking for entertainment for my company for the month of August 22 or October 3rd because we are celebrating winning company of the year and those are the dates we are looking to celebrate. Could you give me some places you think they would like it probably will be about 50 plus.
On "Life Below Zero" on Nat Geo there was this episode where they ate tongue. It looked so good! Houston is a foodie town. Where can I get a tongue sandwich in H-Town, Veronica?
My sisters and I will be coming into Houston to board a cruise. What hotels would be close to the cruise port? What options are there for me to get from the IAH airport to whatever hotel we choose. Thanks Sue
Hi Veronica! We're here for medical treatment, but while here we're trying to make lemonade from lemons! We have our two year old with us, and we were wondering if there is a guide somewhere that we could get that tells us about family/kid opportunities around the city? Money is tight, so we're especially interested in free or low-cost things, although we might be able to have one splurge. ThNk you so much for your assistance!
Hi! Coming to H-Town for the weekend of the 4th. What is the best hotel, downtown or anywhere, to catch fireworks from my room from?
The Doubletree Hotel and Hyatt Regency Houston are near Eleanor Tinsley Park, where the downtown festival is happening. When booking, I'd let them know you'd like to see the fire works from your room so they can verify which room is the best.
Hope this helps,
Hi Veronica, I want to know where I can find items at wholesale prices. Also, I was told there is a place that sells items imported from Mexico and El Salvador. Please provide addreses. Thank You!
What sort of items are you looking for?
I recommend you check out the Harwin area - they have a variety of wholesale stores, and stores to find some knock-off items as well. I'm not sure if they sell items improted from Mexico and El Salvador, but they may.
I hope this helps,
