HELP! nonrefundable tickets bought/family trip cancelled TOMORROW/what is there for kids?

by 2chill

We were going to a family reunion tomorrow (fri) and the trip just got cancelled. we have the nonrefundable tickets. they'd love to go to 6 flags, but it's closed for the season.

any suggestions to make this trip worthwhile with the kids and with no time for advanced purchase for any event/destination.

Any local rescue tips??

thanx!!

Are you asking about what to do with kids in Houston?

1. Go out to San Jacinto park, admire the monument, teach 'em some history, and tour the battleship Texas (it's been renovated and looks sharp!).

2. Take 'em to Nasa for the space tours.

3. Take 'em to Galveston, tell 'em the story of the 1900 hurricane, take a tour of the various houses that were raised up 6-8 feet after the hurricane (but the fence out front is still where it was, so it's only a couple of feet above the ground ;-) ), take a tour of the Elissa (sailing ship being restored, just off the Strand), and walk along the beaches (even in winter, it's usually not too cold for that).

4. Take the ferry from the east end of Galveston to the Bolivar Peninsula - it's a free ferry run by the State (the ferry is technically part of the state highway system) - you frequently see dolphins in the water near the ship. You will see the line of cargo ships from all over the world entering and leaving Galveston Bay on their way to Houston.

5. Tour Sea Wolf Park in Galveston - go on a destroyer escort and a submarine

Good start?

Mr.Mccalpin almost suggested many things which can be done.
I just wanted to add few.
1.For kids fun and even for adults, Moody Gardens in Galveston (~50miles from Houston downtown) can not be missed.
2. Houston Museum of natural sciences (in museum district) is another good place for lot of fun and learning. THough zoo is not very great, it is worhtwhile to spend sometime there.
3. Shoping in Galleria mall can be expensive but may give you good deals and lot of fun.

Good luck

Travel Tips for Houston

Formerly Baseball

by Angelamtp1

Formerly: Astros Field
Formerly: Enron Field
Formerly: The Ballpark at Union Station
Finally: Minute Maid Park (yuk)
Built: 1997-2000
The building was constructed on the grounds of an old rail yard. As part of the project, the Union Station building was renovated and included in the ballpark design. It holds ticketing facilities, restaurants, and gift shops. From the roof of Union Station people can peer into the stadium to watch the game. Even when the roof is closed, it's possible to look through the stadium's 50,000 square foot glass wall to see the action

Much more "Pub" than "Grill"!

by H-TownJourneyman about Baker St. Pub & Grill

Baker St. are a chain of popular English style pubs here in town, with the original one in Rice Village having been around for quite a few years now. A typical dark "pub" decor is used in all of the locations, along with the standard assortment of English and Irish beers on tap, as well as many domestic and other foreign beers. They do have a decent menu; appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, salads, etc. But very few people go here for the food, especially Thursday - Saturday nights, when the place can be packed full of people. On the weekends all the locations usually have a live band playing playing a mixture of rock and pop music. The Village location is the smallest in size of the 3, and tends to have a younger, college-age crowd, as opposed to the other locations, where you will find a little more mixed crowd. Generally a great place to hang out, grab some pints and listen to some music, but can be a little over crowded at times. No dress code here! Well, just make sure you have clothes on, thats about it!!! :)

Bring the Kids

by spgood301 about Skeeter's Mesquite Grill

Skeeter's is one of the better places to bring the kids for good food. They'll love it, from the kid friendly food like burgers, to the paper tablecloths with crayons provided for their next work of art, to the video game arcade in back.

The thing I like about Skeeter's is that the food isn't just for kids - we grownups can enjoy it too. Grab a burger, maybe an enchilada or fajita and a beer too. A great place for the family, good for lunch or dinner. I enjoyed a Skeeterburger last time I was there, though the enchiladas with gravy are good too.

The Houston Galleria

by ATXtraveler

Monstrosity of Retail, the Houston Galleria truly is the place where you can get anything you need! There are so many stores in this shopping center that you could spend days just walking around. It is so large, they put two seperate hotels in the mall itself! On opposite ends, you could actually spend 3 days without every leaving or sleeping in the same place!

Williams Waterwall

by H-TownJourneyman

The Williams Waterwall is a gorgeous piece of architecture located right next to the Williams Tower in the Uptown District. The 60+ ft. tall structure is in the shape of a semi-circle, with water that cascades down over it and down a series of steps towards the bottom. When you stand in front of it, especially at night when it is illuminated by lights from beneath the water, it is really a spectacular sight. It is situated at the end of a lovely little park surrounded by oak trees, and is a favorite photo opportunity for locals and visitors alike in Houston.
