Need to know where to go and what to do in Houston? Give a tip, post a comment or ask Veronica.
I go to houston between 16 and 22 may for a rock concert (RUSH) I want to know where I find a hotel with best location for shopping, walking, etc thanks
Welcome to Houston! I believe the concert will be at Toyota Center in May, so I'd recommend you stay in Downtown. You'll be close to the concert venue and will still be able to walk around to dinner and shopping.
While you're in Downtown, be sure to visit Market Square Park for dining and nightlife options as well as Green Street for some shopping. Be sure to hop on the light rail to see the Museum District or the Houston Zoo. You may want to look into a Houston CityPASS while you're at it - the CityPASS gets you into Houston's top attractions at 50% savings.
Hope this helps,
Have any ideas on fun things to do all day and night on a Saturday in downtown Houston, TX?
Here are a few ideas. Take a tour with Discover Houston, take a stroll through Discovery Green, visit the Downtown Aquarium, where the rides are open late. Learn about the city's past at The Heritage Society. Go on a Double Decker Bus Tour. Take a tour of Minute Maid Park where the Houston Astros play. Or take a culinary tour of some of the area restaurants. At night, head to Market Square Historic District for the nightlife scene.
I hope this helps!

You actually don't need to reserve a space for the boat tour. Here is a page of info on the Sam Houston Boat Tours.

Hi Veronica! Quick question - can you recommend the best BBQ in town and also are there any gun ranges in Houston?
That's a difficult question to answer since Houston has so many types of BBQ and so many great places! But, if you're looking for traditional Texas BBQ, I recommend checking out Goode Co. Bar-B-Q, Pappas Bar-B-Q. or Killen's. for some delicious grub!
Regarding Gun Ranges, check out Athena Gun Club on the west side of Houston.
I am at a hotel near the airport and I would like to know if I caught the red metro train system what could I see along the way. Thanks Deb
If you're talking about the Metro Light Rail, here is some information about the Red Line. It'll take you from north of Downtown, through Downtown, Midtown, the Museum District and down to NRG Center. However, this isn't accessible from the airport, so you'd need to either take a taxi or a bus from the airport to the light rail stop.
Here is information on Metro's trip planner to help you determien the correct bus based on your time of day, area of town, etc.
Hope this helps!
