One day stopover in Houston en route to Galveston

by 68amx

My wife and I are flying into Houston this Friday and would like suggestions on where to stay and how to tour the city for one full day and one night that would not require renting a car. We'll use transport service to get back and forth to Galveston Island and just want to enjoy Houston all day and into the evening on Friday. Maybe a city bus tour? Or, maybe a well-located hotel within walking or short cab ride distance of interesting and fun things? Thanks for your suggestions.

I would suggest staying in either the Medical Center area or Downtown. This way you can take advantage of the light rail train, which is Houston's only form of mass transportation other than the bus system. It only covers a limited area though, but some highlights of the city are along its route.

Downtown there are several restaurants, lounges, and bars, especially along and just a couple of blocks from Main Street. There is not that much as far sightseeing there, some tall buidings, and a few of the older buidings that were fortunate enough not to be torn down. You can catch a performance in the Theatre District if you enjoy plays or musicals.

But your best bet is to take the train down to the Museum District, where you could spend days at the many museums and art gallerys there. Some of the better ones are the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum Of Natural Science, and the Holocaust Museum. Also right there in the area is Hermann Park, which is nice to walk around, and the Houston Zoo is located there as well.

As far as hotels, there are several in both of these locations. Not sure what your price range is, but most will run at least $90 all the way up to $200 a night. Some of the better ones are the Sam Houston Hotel, the Hyatt Regency, and the Four Seasons, all downtown. The Medical Center has a Marriott, a Hilton, and a Crowne Plaza.

As far as tours, that can also get kinda hairy because of the city's size. Most tours are of a specific location, not the whole city, which would be immpossible to do in 1 day. But Discover Houston I have heard has some decent tours. Ph # 713-222-9255.

There are many other areas of Houston to visit, but without a car, a cab would be the only other way of getting to them, and that can get kinda pricey as big as Houston is. But FYI, the Galleria area has great shopping, and NASA/Space Center Houston is great to visit, but it is about 30-45 minutes south of downtown.

Hope this will help!

Hotels in the Medical Center are sometimes cheaper than downtown and only 5 min. away. In downtown there is also a Crowne Plaza, Doubletree, Hilton and Holiday Inn Express that sometimes has good rates (sometimes around $100, depends on capacity). The Warwick hotel is a very nice, historic hotel and in the middle between dtwn and med center next to the Museum of Fine Arts (www.mfah.org), and on the metro train line that runs from dtwn to Reliant Stadium via med center and museum district. Downtown has some beautiful old buildings, you can probably find info on a self walking tour if you search the web.

Travel Tips for Houston

The Houston Dynamo Soccer Team

by MarvintheMartian

The Houston Dynamo are a Major League Soccer team playing at the Robertson Stadium located at the University of Houston. There is a long history of soccer in Houston which you can read on the website. This team relocated from San Jose and began representing Houston on April 1st 2006.

It's a lively game and worst a visit!

Check out the crazy chanting, drumming and band playing from the stand on the Holman Street side (pic 1). A wider view of the field is given in pic 2. Specator Sport

Cecil's

by SinKitty about Cecil's

Cecil's is just a great bar. It's a tiny place that has quarter pool tables and a huge patio. The drinks are great and reasonably priced. They have several beers on tap to choose from. It's very smoky and you always go home stinky. So if you're one of those militant anti-smoking types, please don't go to Cecil's.
The jukebox is great. Some selections include Quicksand, The Reverend, and Social Distortion. Casual of course.

Good Tex-Mex food

by Stargazer1 about Antonio's Mexical Grill

Good, basic Tex-Mex. Wife split the poblano chicken fajitas with her mother, son had shrimp enchiladas. Only two problems. The borracho beans were a bit undercooked, and could have been spicier. No lunch menu, so lunch is as expensive as dinner, especially if you have drinks. Chips and salsa are good, salsa is served piping hot. Tacos al carbon, with good fajita meat. Comes with salad, guacamole salad, pico de gallo, rice, and a cup of borracho beans.

Kemah on the Boardwalk

by CLillard

Great family place. Live music outside on the weekends. They have carnival type games. Most famous for the best/freshest seafood restaurants near Houston (9 or more restaurants in one complex). There's an outdoor fountain that shoots up random water and kids love to play here in the summer. They have a little train that goes around the area and a ferris wheel. They also have lots of shopping here.
