    Not for the faint of heart

    by

    Unless you know the Houston area, or at least the area around Intercontinental Airport very well, do not stay in this hotel. The first two taxi drivers which I asked were honest enough to admit that they did not know where it was. The third assured me that he did but he didn't. It cost me over $20 to get there, even before the minimal tip. The next morning the motel owner called a taxi for me and it only cost $14 before a more appropriate tip, and it was a relatively straight shot to the airport.
    The hotel was okay for the price but certainly not where you want to spend your honeymoon.
    I was propositioned by a "lady of the evening," who was actually pretty nice looking before I could get from the registration desk to my room which was less than a minute away.

What can we do in Houston in 5 hours??

by cmarsek

I live in Katy, TX. My brother is flying through Houston at the end of next week. He will have about 5 hours time during the afternoon in which I wanted to show him something, hopefully something unique to Houston. Does anyone have a suggestion for something to do in Houston in such a short period of time? We would like to stay in Houston and not drive to Galveston or NASA on this day.

THANK YOU for your suggestions!!

Chris, will he be flying into Hobby or Intercontinental?

I believe he is flying into Hobby.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

If he's into museums, you can take him to the Museum District. The Natural History, Fine Arts, Contemporary Arts and Holocaust Museums are all right next to each other. Hermann Park Zoo is also just down the street, as is Rice University. Downtown is a few minutes away by light rail from there.
If you're worried about parking, there's actually lots of free parking on the side streets east of San Jacinto, especially along Calumet. I used to live right down the street from here, and was always amazed that people would pay $5 to park at the MFAH garage.

there is also the San Jacinto Monument, which is probably about 25-30 minutes from Hobby. It is certainly a unique to houston item!

I moved from SoCa to Houston (NASA guy here). The two quick things to do is the Aquarium (about $8) and the 60th(?) floor observation windows (free) at the Chase Bldg. The space center tour is not worth it. If you want to see space hardware, go to Kennedy Space Center.

Travel Tips for Houston

Stars & Wildlife - Brazos Bend State Park

by el_ruso

Brazos Bend State Park is a great side trip, especially if you have kids and/ or like nature! Much more fun and interesting than most if not all attractions in the Houston area.

Besides virgin marshland and forest along Brazos where you can see typical local fauna, such as deer and racoons - all rather tame. But the main draw is its wonderful telescope - the area around is relatively free from human-made light, and the sight of stars in the sky is just overwhelming, especially if you have lived most of your life in a city. And the telescope will let you see them up close.

TO GET HERE: follow US 59 South into Fort Bend county, and exit when you see a brown sign directing you to BRAZOS BEND STATE PARK.

Small, Trendy Rice Village Lounge

by H-TownJourneyman about Bronx Bar

Bronx Bar is a popular lounge in the Rice Village, generally frequented by a younger, "20 something" crowd. Inside you will find the place to be a little on the small side, especially on a Saturday night when it is overflowing with people. Outside in the front there are a few tables to sit at, and the extra area out here tends to get crowded as well when the inside is packed. There is a small sitting area with a few chairs and a sofa when you first enter, and along the wall facing the bar there are a couple of standing tables. But other than that, you will find most people standing. There ambiance & decor are fairly typical of a modern lounge, with dim lighting and either hip-hop or house music playing. Of course, like many trendy lounges, the crowd is what people come here for. I must say on most Saturday nights it is a great place to do some people watching. So much so that the owners feel the need to have a cover charge to get in, which goes against the unwritten rule of establishments in the Rice Village not to have one. But nonetheless, if this is your type of scene, it can be worth the few bucks to get in. Tends to be a "dress to impress" type of scene

This mini chain of excellent restaurants is owned by a renowned chef from Honduras. The menu is based on Central American and Caribbean dishes, and the quality of food is excellent, and the prices as well. all

The Astrodome

by krackhorre

I know it's a little corny but the Astrodome was billed as "The 8th Wonder of the World" because it was the first indoor stadium ever built and it's a Texas institution. However the baseball team the stadium is named after no longer plays ball there. If you feel like paying way to much for food and drink go to Minute Made field to see the Astros. No games are played at the Dome anymore.

You have to do a couple of...

by newyorker300

You have to do a couple of things. Go to St. Arnold's Brewery on Saturday, at 130. IT is kinda hard to find so buy a six pack of the Amber, spring bock or Fancy lawnmower and look on the bottom for directions. It is a short tour and free great beer!!!
