Where do I stay?

by cmillard

Hey Everyone:

I was booked to go on a cruise out of New Orleans next month. (my heart goes out to all the people there -- how very sad and devastating for them). I will now be leaving out of Houston instead of New Orleans (no surprise), and I hate to ask for info at this terrible time, but I don't know anything about Houston. I had not planned to go there, and have no idea what is there or where to stay? Can anyone give me some suggestions for reasonable hotels in a nice area (or at least close to the cruise ship terminal). Also, I assume the Space Centre is very interesting -- any other tips for things to do? Anyway again -- my thoughts and prayers are with the residents of New Orleans. I so wish I could have seen your magnificent city, and I hope you are all home again soon.

Sincerely,
Carol.

You are probably going out of the Port of Galveston which is about a 40 minute ride from Houston. There is a shuttle bus that goes to Galveston from both airports in Houston, the cost is reasonable. You really need a car for Houston, but you wouldn't for Galveston. I stayed at the Best Western and it was very nice, across from the beach. If you are going to be in Houston for more than a day, then you better get a car.

Thank you so much for the info and the hotel suggestion.

Nice to get a reply from a neighbour (I live in Victoria)

It truly is a small world -- thanks again.

Carol.

Hello again:

Did you stay in LaPorte Texas? It's about 3 miles from our cruise ship terminal. They have a couple of nice hotels there (including the Best Western). The only question I have, is there a shuttle from the Houston Airport to LaPorte?

Thanks again,
Carol.

It is the Port of Houston, even tho it is in Galveston. The shuttle will take you right from the airport eith the Bush Intercontinental or Houston Hobby and in most cases will drop you right at your hotel in Galveston. You can make reservations for the shuttle right on line, or they do have a phone number where you can make reservations.

Travel Tips for Houston

Vietnam Town in Houston

by RoseAmano

Going northbound on the Metro, looking to your left around McGowen Station, you'll see many older shopping centres with signs written in Vietnamese.

This shopping centre is inside the Supermarket CHO QUE HUONG. There is a foods market, beauty salons, music shops and various other business and authenic restaurants run by and marketed for Vietnamese citizens. I felt like I was instantly transported into any market in Ho Chi Minh City!

The Pho restaurant and french-bread sandwich shop was yummy, and real deal homestyle cooking!

Heavy traffic

by GUYON

Houston is known to have a heavy traffic. During the week days, the cars go to the center on the morning and to go back home in the suburbs on the evening. The week end, the 45 which goes to Galveston is saturated.
Fortunately, the number and the width of the motorways are increasing, including the interchanges.

More good Chinese food

by WFTR about Wong's

When I worked in this area, Wong's was the place to go for lunch when we wanted Chinese food but didn't want to eat too much at a buffet and feel stuffed and lethargic all afternoon. Wong's was always considered a little nicer place than China Palace which is just east on Westheimer. I wouldn't say that it is really a better restaurant, but it probably has a little more upscale atmosphere and crowd. Until recently, Wong's didn't offer a buffet, and many people enjoyed a place where they ordered their food and waited at the table instead of fighting the line around the buffet.

Wong's has recently added a buffet, and it's a good buffet. I think Wong's stil has a quieter atmosphere, and many people still go there to order their food rather than use the buffet. The price range that I've given is for ordering an evening meal. I still think of Wong's as a little more of a non-buffet place. The buffet and lunch meals are usually cheaper.

Kemah!

by GroovyDoc

Kemah is a boardwalk area surrounded by several small blocks of specialty boutiques. It's got a ferris wheel, arcade, and carousel for the kids, several good restaurants with views of the water, and lots of good shopping (esp if looking for special gifts). It's family-oriented, free to enter and a nice place to spend a day.

The Rodeo to end all Rodeos

by cealonzo

The Houston Stock Show and Livestock Exposition began in January of 1931 and the first show was held in April of 1932 at the Democratic Convention Hall. The first downtown parade took place in 1938 and the first entertainer, Gene Autry, takes the stage in 1942. The first scholarship associated with the Rodeo is a $2,000 award that goes to local product Ben Dickerson. In 1961, the official name of the show is changed to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. The Astrodome became the home of the HLSR is 1966 and attendance tops 40,000 for one of the shows. 1970’s performance featuring Elvis Presley draws a record 43,614 spectators, a number that would stand for eight years. In 1992, the four scholarship awards grew from $8,000 to $10,000 and in 1994, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo was broadcast for the first time on pay-per-view. In 1996, the HLSR celebrated 30 years in the Astrodome by inviting George Strait to perform. Strait’s performance drew a record-breaking 62,936 spectators and his 2002 performance sold out in less than two hours when 68,266 spectators filed in. In 2003, the 71 st HLSR moved into Reliant Stadium and Reliant Center, a new stadium built for the NFL team. The attendance record was broken again on March 17, 2004, when 70,668 people paid to watch rodeo action followed by a concert by country music star Kenny Chesney.
