Halloween in Houston

by GUYON

Thanks
RAY

Re: Halloween in Houston

by cromette

hmmm....okay....I think you just want to know where you might find a great party with lots of people in costumes, etc.?

Okay, I'll look around.

We think of a feast as being a big sit-down meal with tons of food, etc.

Halloween is not really considered a feast day, but simply more of a treat day! Kids downing candy by the handfuls and folks in costumes.

But I think you just want to know where you could get in on the fun, right? OK, let me look.

Re: Halloween in Houston

by Keyser

As the earlier poster said, I'm not sure what you mean by "feast" - can you describe a bit more of what you're looking for? And, is this just adults traveling or are there any kids/teenagers?

There are webpages at:
http://www.digitalcity.com/houston/halloween/
and
http://houston.citysearch.com/roundup/38068/
that give some of the Halloween-related activities that will be going on in Houston. I imagine they might add more things as we get closer to the actual date. The Houston Chronicle (main newspaper) web site might have a similar list.

Generally, the things that go on at Halloween here are:
1) Little kids dress up in costumes and trick-or-treat (go to houses and get candy). This is done in residential areas - unless you are driving around where people live, you probably won't notice this.

2) There are "Haunted Houses" that people set up - you pay money and they have elaborate and (sometimes) frightening/grotesque scenes that you walk through. These are geared mainly toward teenagers/young adults, though a lot of older adults enjoy them, too. I know there are some of these in and around Houston.

3) Sometimes people have elaborate displays of carved pumpkins set up in their yards and people will drive to see them - I don't know if there are any of these around Houston. This, again, is likely to be in residential areas - you'll have to hunt it out to find it.

4) There are adult parties where people dress up in costumes. Most of these that I know of tend to be private things that people have with their friends at someone's house. But, there are some that are public (e.g. at a hotel/nightclub), if you are wanting to wear a costume and pay to go to a party. One listed on the above pages is the Vampire Ball - that's not my kind of party, though.

5) Sometimes, large attractions (e.g. Six Flags Astroworld in Houston does this) redecorate and have a Halloween themed party.

6) You might find some Halloween specials at restaurants, and often some people will dress in costume even at work on Halloween.

Travel Tips for Houston

Access to Buffalo Bayou

by WFTR

When VT puts character limits in these boxes, they might as well have "Bill, we don't like you" in big bold letters. I like to write, and my descriptions of places tend to be long. If people don't need that much information, they can always skim what I've written. I try to start every paragraph with a sentence that describes the rest of the paragraph. If it doesn't interest you, you can skip to the next paragraph.

Anyway, I'm using this tip to tell people how to find the Buffalo Bayou path that I described in the "Walking along the bayou" tip.

Access is best at three places.

1. The far end of the path starts at a parking lot on the west side of Hwy 6 a little ways south of Memorial. The parking lot is surrounded by a big, grassy area that is a nice place to go by itself. The trail leaves the parking lot, crosses the bayou along the highway bridge, and crosses under the bridge to follow the bayou.

2. An intermediate location is on the east side of Dairy-Ashford just south of the bayou. The parking lot is just north of an office building and can be tough to see. I believe that the address on the office building is 1010 S. Dairy Ashford. The parking lot is the last bit of pavement south of the bayou.

3. A third access is along Memorial. I think it's west of Eldridge by a little bit, but it may be east of Eldridge. Another access to this area is from the feeder road along I-10. This area has a little park with some kid toys. It isn't actually on Buffalo Bayou, but feeder trails make a nice loop that runs to the bayou and back.

The new Tramway line

by XenoHumph

Houston is proudly entering... the 20th Century (yes, I mean 20 not 21st)!! It just built its first tramway line. Even if it's about time some decent common transportation sees the light of day in this car-city, I am very happy that this rail line exists! May many many more be built!!

Here is the path of the one tramway line, broadly NE-SW, on my "General tips" Houston area map, from 1 to 22
-Starts from the Nothern part of downtown (University of Houston Downtown campus)
-Runs along Main Street, which got revitalize as a consequence of the rail. Saturday and Sunday evening, Main street becomes a pedestrian only zone, and is supposed to be very lively (bars, restaurants,...).
- Passes through the Museum District (Fannin & San Jacinto Streets depending on which way), a couple blocks East of Rice University campus.
- Passes through the Medical Center (Fannin St).
- Passes at the Reliant Park Stadiums (Fannin St)
- Ends just South of 610 loop near the 6 Flags Astroworld entertainment park.

There is a train every 12 minutes
M-F: 4:24am-12:42am
Sat: 5:24am-1:06am
Sun: 5:24am-12:42am
Tickets at vending machines at the stations: 1$ per person one way.

This tramway is very pleasant, safe and efficient. You can park for $2 at the Southern end of the line (Fannin South): exit Fannin on 610, go South on Fannin, and follow the signs "Park and Ride". I highly recommand you to take the tramway if you have to go to the Medical Center (expensive parking there!), the Museum District or Downtown.

Tapas in the Village

by H-TownJourneyman about Mi Luna

If you enjoy tapas food, and want a great atmosphere, this is the place to go. Located in the Rice Village, this restaurant serves excellent Spanish tapas dishes, which are usually smaller portions. It is nice to order a few different ones and share with everyone in your party. Most nights they have flamenco dancers, and Thursday night is salsa night, when the restaurant turns into a small dance club with a live salsa band. A great atmoshere, just like if you were in a tavern in Spain. Give it a try if you enjoy great Spanish food with a great ambiance! Gambas al Ajillo. It's a shrimp dish, with garlic and some other stuff! :)

Downtown Houston

by kd_baby

Downtown Houston has always fascinated me. They have some of the big city architecture and futuristics designs I've seen anywhere. I love this skyline, and it's even more lovable after seeing the money invested in Downtown Houston for the 2004 Superbowl.

San Jacinto Monument

by el_ruso

This is a site of the victory of Texans under Sam Houston that sealed their independence. Unfortunately, the area around the sight is full of oil refineries and chemical plants. Well, on a second thought, fortunately, because these plants provide work for a lot of people here. Just be aware that if you choose to go to the top, the views will not be beautiful.
