6 hours at the Bush Airport -- What to do?

by frecklesoup

I have a 6 and a half hour layover in Houston on November 3rd. Any suggestions for something to do? .. Are there luggage lockers there? Any good restaurant recommendations in the area?

All suggestions appreciated..
thanks in advance...

It looks like due to security restrictions they no longer have lockers.

There are some OK restaurants in the area, but I don't know if they would be worth taking a cab to.

There is a Saltgrass that is pretty good. There is one at 20090 Highway 59 N, Humble, TX 77338-2430 that maps as being 6.3miles/13 minutes away from IAH . They have good steaks, etc.

I'm guessing you meant December 3...

I don't think you'd have enough time to see anything interesting in that part of Houston. There are some restaurants around (the ones I know of are several miles to the West, up on 45), but you'd probably be just as well off eating at one of the airport restaurants. In particular, I believe there is a Pappadeaux restaurant in Terminal E - Pappadeaux is a chain of (good) seafood restaurants in the Houston area (and elsewhere). I believe there may be one or two other restaurants in the airport (beyond the usual "airport restaurant" kind of places).

Other than that, there's a horse racing track that's not too far away if you were into that kind of thing. You could probably make it to downtown, but probably wouldn't really have time to see a museum or anything (there are some good exhibits on Tibet and on the Dead Sea Scrolls right now at the Museum of Natural Science, for example), plus you'd have to mess with the expense of a cab and the hassle of trying to get a cab back to the airport.

Hi Keyser,

thanks for your response!

Actually, I meant to say November 30th. :-)

The restaraunt sounds good. I'll check it out.

I know what you mean about the cab hassle. I was thinking of taking a cab to a park for a hike.. I'd love to get some excercise before hopping on my international flight. But cab fair might be to pricey.

BTW, I hear Houston is flooded right now! I guess a hike might not be the best plan either.

I sure wish airports had gyms!

anyway, I appreciate the comments...

Travel Tips for Houston

BlueBonnets in Bloom

by AVG2319

Blue Bonnets in bloom in Texas (springtime) are beautiful and a great photo opp. Drive out to the countryside to get your picture in. You don't have to drive that far to find a spot. I took pictures in Spring,tx just north of Houston.

LH from FRF to IAH

by cochinjew

I had prebooked my seat 4G i think it was, by the window , i foolishly changed it to 10 D which was on the second cabin and also slightly less comfortable. The food and service were superb.
the lesson learned is sit on a two seat arrangement rather than a three seat arrangement, which many of the european airlines seem to have.
arrived on time and within minutes i was out of the immigration and customs as i went through the Global Entry.

Late Night Vietnamese Food!

by H-TownJourneyman about Mai's Restaurant

This tiny Vietnamese restaurant a few minutes south of downtown does a great business during normal business hours of the week. But on Friday and Saturday nights after 2am, this place gets crazy! Wow, what a coincidence that the clubs and bars in Houston shut down at 2am. Hmmmmm?! :) Because of the fact that most of the 11,000 restaurants in town close at 10 or 11pm, people out on the town at night have just a few choices to go have a late night meal. Mai's is a popular choice among Houstonians. But regardless of whether it is 2 in the morning, or 2 in the afternoon, this restaurant serves up some pretty good food. Mostly Vietnamese, they also have some Chinese and Thai dishes on the menu. Great appetizers such as spring rolls. A superb selection of noodle soups. And wonderful seafood, chicken, pork, and vegetarian plates are all on the menu as well. If you like, they also have several combination platters available. Not a fancy restaurant by any means, but a good choice for a late night, or middle of the day meal!

Oh, and a tip, go to their website before you go, they usually have a coupon available. Enjoy!!! Ga xoi mo xoi chien! What?! Chicken w/ fried sweet rice. Just tell them # 144, they'll know! :)

The Williams Tower

by MarvintheMartian

Leave the Galleria shopping center! Yes leave retail therepy for a little while and visit the green area in front of the Williams Tower for half an hour or so. The Williams Tower is an impressive structure which overlooks the Galleria Shopping Area. Great place for a quick lunch or picnic before shopping some more...

Mission Control

by keeweechic

You will see the Centers old Mission Control Center (MCC) which in its day was the operational hub of every American human space mission since Gemini IV. A lot of the old equipment is still there but there is a more modern and uptodate centre elsewhere now which manages all activity onboard the space station and instructs all space shuttle missions which includes station assembly flights and servicing the Hubble Space Telescope.
