Internet cafe? public transit?

by woobie

My friend is at the airport Marriott in Houston, has no transportation, and is wondering where he could check his e-mail and shop for books. Is there a train that would take him from the airport to an internet cafe and/or a bookstore?
thanks!

Train? In the US? You've got to be kidding.

I would check with the Marriott. They may have a business center where he can get email. Or there may be one in the airport. There are also bound to be news-stands and bookstores of some sort there.

To get downtown:

Express Shuttle USA (tel. 713/523-8888) ferries passengers from the airport to the major hotels downtown, in the Galleria area, in the Medical Center, and in Greenway Plaza. Service is from 7:30am to 11:30pm. To or from downtown costs $19 ($34 round-trip) per person; one-way and round-trip fares for the other three locations are $20 and $36. Shuttle ticket counters are at airport terminals A and C. The shuttles run frequently and usually get you out of the airport in 15 minutes.

Another option is the city's bus service (tel. 713/635-4000), which operates bus route nos. 101 and 102 Monday through Friday from 6:30am to 7pm between Terminal C and downtown. The fare is $1 or $1.50, depending on the time. Exact change is required, but the machines accept $1 bills. Buses run about every 30 minutes, and travel time to downtown is a little less than an hour.

Travel Tips for Houston

San Jacinto Monument & State Park

by keeweechic

The State Park is located 22 miles east of downtown Houston. The site has huge historical significance for Texas and the United States. The famous battle of San Jacinto which brought Texas its independence was fought on this site and changed its course of history.

On this site is the Battleground, Monument and Battleship "Texas" which is the last of the American "dreadnoughts" which was considered the most powerful warship afloat.

Public Transportation

by John_P_LSU

Despite what you may have heard, Houston has a pretty good public transportation system that consists mostly of busses [www.ridemetro.org/services/publicguides.asp].
Additionally, there is a free trolley system
[www.ridemetro.org/pdf/routes/trolley.pdf] that runs downtown.
There is also as a relatively useless rail-line
[www.ridemetro.org/pdf/routes/700metrorail.pdf] that connects downtown to the Reliant Park / Astrodome area (via the Museum District and Medical Center).

Good Mediterranean

by monicarc about Aladdin

This is a new restaurant, at the intersection of Montrose and Westheimer, so a pretty eclectic crowd is inside and outside. The food is great and its a pretty good deal--basically $10 a person, drink included (no alcohol, its muslim). The gyro! The hummus and tabouleh are good as well.

NASA Space Center

by peaceness98

Five-story plaza with a full-size fake space shuttle. There's a tram tour that takes you to throughout buildings in the Space Center. You can get a seat in the viewing room of the original Mission Control room and check out full-size mock-ups of the original Apollo rockets.

There's a diner called Zero-G.

Admission: US$ 16.95 Adults; US$12.95 Children 4-11; US$15.95 Seniors over 64; free for Children under 4.

Parking: US$ 4.00

You Can't Miss It

by keeweechic

Rocket Park is right at the entrance to the Centre and clearly visible from Nasa Road. You used to be able to drive up and walk around yourself free of charge between 7.00a.m. and 6.00p.m. but after 9/11, I don't think you can do that now.
