NASA Johnson Space Center

by jburgart

Can anyone give me an idea of how much time I should dedicate to seeing this attraction? We will be driving in from New Orleans that morning so I'm wanting to know how early of a start I should get? Also, if you have restaurant suggestions for that area I would appreciate those as well.

Depends on who you have with you. A lot of it's geared much more toward kids.

If you're going to New Orleans right after that, you could go through Kemah on the way out, via Highway 146, just as a more scenic route. In Kemah there are a few places to eat, but most are Landry's owned, which is a chain seafood place based in Houston. http://www.kemahboardwalk.com/
Failing that, there's a Baytown Seafood on Highway 146 at Fairmount Parkway in La Porte, a few miles north of Kemah. Very good, cheap seafood. Much better than anything Landry's will fry up for you.

no more than half a day - as noted, it is definitely geared towards kids. the longest item is the "NASA Tour" where they put you on a long shuttle and haul you around the real NASA buildings (some of which you can go in). I guess it also depends on how crowded it is...we went around Halloween, so off season...

Kids utilize the tour facility more than the older folks. However if you are keen on observing, reading and taking pictures, the Space Rocket in the display room can take some time.

Yes, the Kemah Boardwalk is a great eating place to consider. If you are coming from Houston on I-45 South there are few eating places at the intersection of I-45 South and Nasa exit road.

1/2 day is probabaly about right. That area is loaded with lots of "chain" places.....(Friday's, Chile's, etc....Kemah is kind of fun with some local chain resturants.....Have fun..

Travel Tips for Houston

Enjoy the view

by ATXtraveler

Take some time when you get to your hotel room to take a look at your surroundings. During my trip to Houston, I stayed at the Houston Galleria Westin, and had this beautiful evening view of downtown.

This picture was taken around sunrise.

Old 6th Ward, oldest intact Houston neighborhood

by XenoHumph

This small district of Houston is one of the best preserved residencial neighborhood of Houston with many houses dating back from the end of the XIXth century. Houston has a sad history of tearing down historic buildings and old neighborhoods. This is still happening, to make room for new real estate projects with only immediate profit in mind. So, the fact that this one is preserved (it is a City of Houston Designated Historic District) is to be cherished! It is very pleasant to stroll in these streets ligned with small wooden houses, some lovingly renovated, and some still falling appart from years of neglect. Needless to say, this neighborhood is "gentryfying" rapidly. Plus the view of downtown skyline from there is really nice.
Soon, I'll add specific details on the houses most worth seeing... patience...

Directions
In Houston, just North of Memorial Drive and West of Downtown.
District bounded by Memorial Drive, Glenwood Cemetery, Washington Avenue and Houston Avenue. In the center of the neighborhood is the Justin Dow School Park.

I do belive flying is the best...

by 1sassyfemme

I do belive flying is the best way to go. It's fast and you don't have to worry about folding maps. However, if you do decide to take the road trip route (and there's nothing wrong with that!), remember tht Texas is BIG. Especially for those coming from the western part of the United States. It's a 13 hour drive just from El Paso to Houston! If you're driving, make sure you bring your Travel Yahtzee!=0)
If you can afford it, renting a car would be the best thing. Houston is very spread out and you will cover a lot of ground getting to all of the sites. True, Houston does have a bus system, METRO, but if you are staying on the outskirts it's hard to find a bus line. Not to mention you would have to get a ton of transfers and it's easy to get confused. The good thing that Metro does provide is service called Paerk and Ride. This way if you are planning to go to one part of the city (especially downtown Houston) you can park your car, ride the bus downtown, and come back whenever you like! It really makes going downtown easy.

One of the best Taquerias in town!

by H-TownJourneyman about La Tapatia Mexican Cafe & Cantina

Looking for Tex-Mex food? This is what Tex-Mex is all about! Houston is a mecca for Mexican food restaurants, many billing themselves as being glamorous, almost gourmet. But this local chain of taquerias doesn't hype up themselves, they don't need to. The food speaks for itself. Now usually it can be a little loud in these restaurants. Along with the usual large crowds, they tend to have norteno or cumbia music blasting out of the jukebox. But it kind of just adds to the whole atmosphere, in a good way. The menu is full of your standard Tex-Mex dishes, along with a few not-so-common items. They also have a nice selection of Mexican beers, i.e. Dos XX, Corona, Tecate, etc., as well as domestics. Another great addition is after you finish your meal. You find out that the bill is reasonable, heck, down right cheap. And this is also one of the rare places in town you can have a late night meal, as they are open until 3am during the week, and 5am on the weekends. Don't be suprised if you walk in after a night on the town to find this place packed way after 2am. Great food, good service, and excellent prices! My kind of restaurant! Flautas, Enchiladas, Tamales, Fajitas, need I go on? Everything is great!

Houston's Theatre District

by shargurl

I enjoy musicals, plays and concerts! After moving to Houston, I found that Texans aren't short of all these experiences. I have attended quite a few musicals at Hobby Center - Sarofim Hall. Very entertaining, the last show I attended here was Broadway Across America's "RENT" performance. Located in the same place is the Artista Restaurant.
