Houston TX Questions

Jump to last reply

February trip. Rental car will be in the mix. 2 adults coming from much colder climate into Hobby- will walk and be outdoors as much as possible for 8 days.

What area in the city do you think is best for centering a 2 or 3 day hotel stay? What area outside the city good for 2 or 3 days more? We want to go to zoo, Space Center, Nat. Hist. Museum etc. Would rather have free parking and we are not a fan of large luxury hotels of 20 or 30 floors- but that's ok if it is your favorite.

Is there a good discount broker online that is better for Houston or Galveston hotels that you have used frequently? Or do you have any strong preference for one, or think part of the city is tourist trap area? Mostly, we do not mind touristy centers, but just want some opinions.

What's not to miss in Houston or near to that area- or on the way to Galveston?

Anything you may want to add re Houston /Galveston stay in February. Day trip or special resort information in either area that you like? Any details greatly appreciated.

Thanks ahead of time.
