Downtown Houston, The lowdown for a newcomer

by RhyceCgy

I've never been to Houston, but I'm tagging along with my partner while he's doing some training during the week of March 13-17. We're staying at the Doubletree Hilton downtown. During the days I'll be by myself to explore or do whatever. Is downton a safe area? What are some things I should try to do? I like shopping, so thought of hitting the Galeria if it's not too far or hard to get to, and I am also an interior designer, so anything related to that might also help give you a clue as to what I'm into.
Thanks

Downtown is typically safe in the northern part (from about Lamar Street up), but south of Buffalo Bayou, which is where most of the hotels, restaurants and bars are. The area around US 59 and the convention center used to be pretty nasty, but the stadium and arena have improved it dramatically. East of US 59 should be avoided. It is still an American city though, so just use common sense.
It's easy to get to the Galleria if you have a car. Failing that, there is a bus (82) that goes right down Westheimer to it (also express service on the 53). The bus system isn't great, but there's really no alternative without a car.
On the way there, you may be interested in the Montrose area along Westheimer between Brazos and Shepherd. Lots of antique shops, boutiques, good restaurants and bars. Houston has a large GLBT community, and this area is the center of it.
You'd probably also like the Contemporary Art Museum (closed on Mondays), in the Museum District and easily accessible from the light rail. They always something interesting, and it's one of those "Free, but donations suggested" places.

Hope that helps.

Hi. Since you are staying in Downtown area, you will find lots of bars. Go down to main street and you could bar hop in the evening. Downtown is pretty safe. There are always cops there taking care of everything. On of my fave palces to go to is SAMBUCA. This is a jazz restaurant. It is on Travis, right below the Rice Lofts. they have a band everyday of the week. Its a REALLy nice place. and if you go from 4-7pm Mon-Fri they have EXCELLENT happy hour specials. Also, a lot of the bars down main don't have a cover before 10pm so you might want to try that out.

You'll find plenty to do. The downtown area has been rebuilt and revitalized in the last few years. There are some homeless you need to watch out for, but other than that it's pretty safe. The Galleria is not too far, as the previous poster said. Not too expensive by taxi, either. The Museum district is fantastic -- you'll be amazed by the variety, I think. The Village near Rice U. is pretty neat, and another fairly upscale shopping area near there is Highland Village (or is it Park?). Lots of bars and restaurants in and near downtown -- too many to list. You'd have to tell us what kind of food you like (Indian, Chinese, Italian, TexMex, Cuban, S. American, African, Caribbean, seafood, steak, etc.). Hope this helps.

Whether you are in the mood...

by SeaBreezeUSA

Whether you are in the mood for burgers or Eggs Benedict, there's a terrific little spot around the corner. With thousands of restaurants, Houston has an astounding choice of palate-pleasing cusines. Savor the flavors of Chinese, Cajun, Traditional American, Greek, German, English, French, Italian, Japanese, Lebanese, Mexican, South American, Thai or Vietnamese food. Chow down on genuine Texas barbecue. Hot-as-a-pistol chili. Spicy crawfish. Rasberry souffle'. Or steamed dumplings. It's your chance to indulge in your favorites and to try some new culinary experiences. Great eating spots pepper the city, so your opportunities for a memorable dining experience are limitless. Dozens of Houston restaurants have won accolades in magazines such as Gourmet and Esquire. No wonder Houstonians dine out more than residents of any other city, including New York.

The Hobby Center

by alan505

The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts is an amazing place. When I found out that Robert A. M. Stern would be designing this building I knew that Houston was in for something special. This $100 million + addition to the Theater District. The two theaters at the Hobby Center that draw the most praise are Sarofim Hall and Zilkha Hall. The beauty must be seen to appreciated. In addition to the arts there is an adjacent restaurant owned by Michael Cordua. (Artista)

The Ship Canal

by MarvintheMartian

Two brothers, John and August Allen founded Houston in 1836, naming it for Sam Houston, hero of the Mexican war with Generalissimo Santa Anna. The idea was to attract people there on the basis of its success as a port. They were optimistic but as it turned out justifiably so. Houston was state capital in the mid 1800's until Austin superseded it. The building of a ship canal linking it to the sea began to establish it as a port of some value and when Galveston, at the time the main port, was destroyed by a hurricane in 1900 growth really began. Houston went from being prosperous port and trading centre to one of the powerhouses of the nations economy with the discovery of oil in 1901.
