Houston is served by two airports – George Bush Intercontinental and William P. Hobby. Travelers on a budget should consider flying into Hobby because it is a major stopping point for the budget airline Southwest. Trying to increase your Continental frequent flier miles? Then plan to arrive at Intercontinental, which is a major hub for Continental Airlines. Renting a car is recommended for Houston visitors because although there are public transportation options in the city, they are limited. And Houston’s sprawling lay-out and summer heat makes traveling exclusively by foot difficult for some. It’s easy to rent a car from either airport, but keep in mind that you may be charged fewer taxes and fees if you rent a car off site from the airport. There are affordable accommodations to be found, no matter what your budget. From modern and sophisticated downtown hotels, to quaint bed and breakfasts near Montrose, there’s something to suit everyone. Houston boasts an eclectic mix of industry and has drawn people from all over the world. Many people who live in Houston are not necessarily from the city and they bring their own unique culture with them. The fantastic nightlife and restaurant options reflect this diversity. When it’s time to dine, you’ll be able to find something that pleases every budget and palate – from taco stands to five-star restaurants, barbecue to sushi. Because of Houston’s proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, visitors will be able to find excellent seafood; catfish is a local favorite. And Houston’s famous barbecue must be sampled. For a breakfast on the run, pick up a breakfast burrito from a taco stand. The stands don’t look like much, but they produce fabulous food. And when the sun goes down and it’s time to play, there are many options, no matter how you choose to spend your evenings. With everything that Houston has to offer, you’re sure to enjoy your visit to the Lone Star State.
