11 hours between flights at IAH on Jan. 1, what to do?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, I haven't posted for a while, but have definitely been traveling this year. At any rate, this question is about Houston

I haven't visited Houston, except for the airport.

We'll want to be back 90 minutes before the second flight (we're going MEX-IAH, IAH-YVR), so about 7:30 PM.

I will be with my 20-year-old daughter. I don't want to rent a car.

I am thinking there are several options:
1) Public transit to somewhere, maybe an art or history museum if it's open? Does Houston have any nice, walkable areas that are easy to access from the airport (I suspect this might be a laughable question). Or maybe a shopping mall. We're fine with an easy to access, huge shopping mall - we love American shopping.
2) Tour bus, like Grayline, of Houston from the airport.
3) Relatively inexpensive taxi, or possibly a shopping shuttle, from the airport to a shopping mall.

What would you suggest?
