If a group wanted to take an architectural tour in Houston, what is the most popular area to see?
The Architecture Center Houston offers great local architecture tours each weekend. Click here for their upcoming calendar of tours.
This roundup of architecturally significant places is also a good starting point. I would say Downtown, the area of Montrose around the Menil Campus and the Heights are some of the most architecturally significant spots around town.
There are more tour options here as well.
I hope this helps!
Hello, I am a local girl. I have an out of town friend coming to visit. We want to go to a fun, active happy hour on Wednesday, April 22nd, in the Midtown/Downtown/Galleria area. Do you have any suggestions where there is a good crowd? Ages 21-45 (we are in the middle of this range). We love music, so that would be a plus. Thank you!
I have a few places you might want to consider. Glorias in Midtown, Sambuca for live jazz, a great newer bar called Nightengale Room. Another popular spot that has a great historic vibe is Public Services Wine and Whisky.
Hi Veronica, I am looking to host an event in Houston, targeted audience for this event is Nigerians. I am trying to find areas in Houston where there are large population of Nigerians frequently go to o reside. Thanks
To my knowledge, there is no one area where most people in the Nigerian community reside in Houston.There are a number of meetup groups for people from Nigeria and other African nations. Check those out here.
Where can I find Texas-shaped waffles in Houston? How about other 'only in Texas' related items (for first time visitors from abroad)?
I'm sorry I don't know about Texas-shaped waffles. But if you're looking for other Texas themed products, head to the Houston Visitors Center. They've got tons of Texas products!
We need your help. Prom is 5/15, and we've (6 of us) decided we want to do something else, fun to us. Destination could be downtown Houston, unless you have better idea. Considering House of Blues, but what other eating AND entertainment suggestions do you have? Lucky Strive is 21+. Doesn't have to be chain restaurant, just special. City Centre, The Woodlands? We'll dress up, and maybe change for after dinner.Please help!
I'll be in Houston this weekend. Looking for an indoor flea market. Due to the 100% chance of rain on Sunday, we will may not go to Trader's Village.
Your best option for a completely indoor flea market is probably Houston Flea Market on Southwest Freeway. Click here for more details. Trader's Village is certainly one of the best, but I understand your concern about the weather. Yet another outdoor option is Sunny Flea Market.
Where should we stay and things to do? Would love to be in the mix of many choices be able to walk around see cool things and eat some great BBQ .
If you stay in Downtown, you have access to walkable dining and nightlife options, like Market Square Park and Green Street. You also have access to the light rail to get you to Midtown, the Museum District, and Houston Zoo. I recommend you look into The Sam Houston Hotel, Hotel Icon or Magnolia Hotel.
Hope this helps,
Going to Houston with my grandson(age 14) what activities from April7th to the 11th would you advice
I always recommend the Houston Zoo and Museum of Natural Science. If he likes sports, check out Top Golf or Lucky Strike Bowling. The Astros season just started up again if he's a baseball fan - you can buy tickets here for a game.
Is it possible to purchase half price Symphony tickets for the same day performance?
If you're a student you can receive 15% off on day-of Symphony tickets when you present your student ID. I don't know of any other discounts.
Hope this helps,
Hi Veronica My husband and I will visiting Houston from May 12th - 15th. We are looking for some fun and exciting things to do - hope you can help. Also, we heard Texas have some of the best bbq on earth - have any suggestions. Any information you provide will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Paula
Barbecue first! Goode Co. BBQ, Killen's (arguably some of the best in Texas), Pizzitola's.
On the events and things to do front, there's an exciting symphony concert on the 15th. An Astros series against the Giants. The Music Man at Theatre Under the Stars. And a Downtown tour. Also check out the Houston Culinary Tours for a taste of the city. You may also want to review some of these Suggested Itineraries.
