What to do...

by obienobie

Hello!

3 of us will be traveling to Central America this month and have an 11-hour lay over in Houston. I was wondering if there was anything worth doing or seeing.

Thanks!
Rachel

Re: What to do...

What do you like doing? What are the ages of the people traveling?
Houston has many museums, a nice zoo, some great shopping and some excellent restaurants.
The airport is about 10 miles and 20-30 minutes outside of the city, so you won't have a whole lot of time. Also, it'll be vital to take a taxi into town, which will be cheaper than the shuttle with 3 people anyway.

Thanks for your reply...

We are all 22 and have many interests.

Is there anywhere else near the airport worth seeing?

Thanks!

The airport is pretty far out from the sites. You may enjoy some shopping/dining at the Galleria. There is also an ice rink for skating within the shopping mall.

Travel Tips for Houston

The galleria is over-priced...

by Jmill42

The galleria is over-priced (see tourist trap), but it does have its perks with the ice rink, and my favorite site, the waterwall. The waterwall is this huge wall of, well, water! It is absolutely beautiful at night and is very close to the galleria. A must see! Oh, by the way, it was voted as the best place to kiss in Texas in 2001.

The shopping Mecca of Houston

by XenoHumph about The Galleria

If you like shopping AND you have BIG BUCKS, the Galleria is the place for you! It is a huge luxurious shopping mall with all the well-known expensive stores such as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fith Avenue , Macy's, but also outlets of Versace, Armani, Chanel, Vuitton, and company. You also find "cheaper" clothes stores such as Banana Republic, Talbots, Gaps.. Well, you know, it is just a big classical shopping mall aimed at the wealthy!
You might notice that I put a tip on the Galleria in my "Tourist Trap" section as well. This is because lots of new comers in Houston are told that THE place to visit in Houston is the Galleria. This is not true. The Galleria is a shopping mall like any other around the US and the same thing can be found in all major cities!!
Finally, parking is free in the many parking buildings under and around the shopping center. It might be hard to find a parking place on a Saturday afternoon. Expensive clothes, shoes, beauty products, art, home furnishing, jewelry, craft...
There are also restaurants, hotels (Marriot, Westin, Hilton,...) and an ice-skating ring. Lots!

The America's

by peaceness98

Rich rock paved interior design, kind of dramatic (Goth's would like it i think)
It's a novel dining experience, and not just a food joint.

'Upscale casual' American/Latin theme

Menu rantges from US$ 3 for drinks, to US$ 29 for main meals

Wheelchair friendly. Mussels, Gulf Snapper, etc

Downtown Architecture

by XenoHumph

Downtown Houston has lots of amazing buildings and sky-scrapers to please the fan of american architecture. For the pleasure of the eye on sleek and modern lines, it is worth taking a stroll in the area. Especially if you went to the Sam Houston Park, you can easily walk to one of the most pleasant area of downtown (where the picture on the left was taken). It comprises this beautiful modern fountain (Tranquility Park), some of the most beautiful buildings (personal opinion) of the city and the Theater District (home to Houston Performing Art Society, Houston Grand Opera, Houston Symphony and Houston Ballet). Also in this area is the Houston official Visitor Center located in the City Hall (opened daily from 9 am to 4 pm) where you can find numerous free brochures on Houston and Texas, and buy souvenirs.

Besides the architectural interest, I cannot say that downton Houston is warm and inviting. There are no shops, no restaurants really visible, no atmosphere; the streets are lined with ugly parking garage entrances. It seems the people working here go to the "Houston's tunnels", a maze of shops, restaurants and corridors below street level (click here for a map of the tunnels). There is actually a recent attempt to give a soul to the Theater District with Bayou Place which is a big complex of restaurants, stage and movie theaters (at 560 Texas Avenue). Plus the inauguration in January 2004 of the tramway line on Main street seems to have revitalized that street, especially when it is blocked to traffic on week-end evenings. I sincerely hope Houston will finally have a city feeling to it!!
