1 week Houston visit - top 10 to do's??

by warp9

Hello,
We're from the UK visiting my uncle in Spring, Houston for a week from 29th March 2008.

I would appreciate your suggestions on:

1) Where to stay?
We're looking for a decentish hotel (3* upwards) within a 30 minute drive of Spring preferably where there are some bars and restaurants.

2) What to do?
There will be four of us(all male), 2 in our 30's and 2 in their early 60's. As my uncle is recovering from an operation and my father has bad knees, we can't do anything too active. Ideas so far include:
- Boating/fishing
- Sporting event
- Gun shooting (not hunting)
- Something motoring related - we're all petrol heads.
- Anything slightly off the wall - e.g. visiting the mirrored glass toilet downtown??!!

Any other ideas??

Thanks in advance.

Howdy,

Houston is not a very exciting town, but it is big. If you need to be within 30 minutes of Spring, your best bet is to stay near Greenspoint and the airport area.

If our interested in shooting, there are indoor ranges around, just look in the telephone book. If you want to go fishing, I would recommend going to Galveston. You can charter a boat, fish in the bay, or off a pier. For motorsports your choices are limited. There are drag racing strips, dirt bike tracks, and dirt oval track racing, but they don't race every week.

Here's some racing links:

Hope you enjoy your stay in Texas,

Welcome to Texas!
You may already be aware, but be sure to rent a car while you are here, its impossible to get around otherwise.

We have a F1 fan group that meets at the Fox Sports grill at the Galleria on Sundays to watch the race. If you are interested, we will probably be meeting to watch the Bahrain race. You can get more information on that at http://formula1.meetup.com/46/

You might want to get a hotel in The Woodlands, which is closer to Spring, but farther from downtown. Its a nice area with lots of bars and restaurants in a close area. http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/houmw-the-woodlands-waterway-marriott-hotel-and-convention-center/

There are also some outdoor gun ranges on HWY 290, which is not too far from Spring.

Basketball season is in full force, so you might want to see about getting some Rockets tickets.

Travel Tips for Houston

Traffic

by GroovyDoc

Houston is the fourth largest city in America, so traffic is bound to be terrible and rush hours are long. And there is always construction!! Avoid major interstates between 4-7pm and 7-9am!! Turn to AM 610 for traffic updates, too!

Texas City dike (40 miles SE of Houston)

by XenoHumph

Texas City dike is a great place to walk, bicycle or fish along Galveston Bay. It extends 5 miles into the Bay, it is huge! You get great views on Galveton Bay ship traffic, including the monster-size tankers, and on the raffineries of Texas City which make a amazing industrial landscape! There is also a natural preserve of wetlands along Texas City shore, which attracts plenty of birds.

Directions:
About 40 miles (64 km) Southeast of Houston
From downtown Houston, take I-45 South, exit FM 1764 and go left to Texas City. Cross Bay Street to Texas City Dike Road.

Absolutely scrumptious if looking for SEAFOOD!

by bluepigsinthesky about Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen

a non-formal yet classy cajun restaurant, the restaurant is catered towards seafood-loving customers as the name indicates. Service varies depending on locations, but i've found that it's best to go on weekdays when its not too busy. I never miss an opportunity to go dine here... i can't pinpoint at one particular dish, but i do prefer the crab cake... deliciously sinful. the sauce is creamy without making the diner sick, with crawfish... ahhh.... a light batter, and really tender crab meat.

Best Guacamole, Better Burritos Elsewhere!

by H-TownJourneyman about Chipotle

This national chain of burrito restaurants, which is owned by the McDonald's Corporation, is a decent place to get a burrito for a meal. But I think that their selections as far as types of tortillas, which is 1, and ingredients for the burritos, are limited in comparison to other burrito places. They do offer different kinds of meats; chicken, beef, barbacoa, etc; and an okay selection of ingredients for the burrito. Tacos are available, as well as the "Burrito Bol", which is basically all of the insides of a burrito without being wrapped in a tortilla. The one reason why I come here though is for their guacamole, which is some of the best I have ever had, anywhere! It is excellent. I have tried to duplicate it many times, but I just can't get that same taste. So I come to Chipotle, and order several cups of the guacamole at a time, to satisfy my "guac" addiction. As far as burritos go, if you are in Houston, try Freebirds, a much better alternative, with a lot more options and better tasting ingredients. I have a review for it as well. But if you really like guacamole, stop in here and pick some up! The Guacamole

Oil Ranch-Fun for the kids

by AVG2319

This is a fun spot to take the kids-fun in the country. Milk a cow, feed the cows, pony rides, petting zoo, pumpkins in the fall, swimming, etc
The kids went here on a school field trip that I chaperoned for. My son had fun-he especially liked the rope swings. We like these types of activities, without them our "city" kids would never get to experience the farm.
