Houston Is Big On Culture, Do It The Local Way
May 13, 2013 - There are always mixed reviews when you search up a local tourist attraction or accommodation, and that is fair enough. Everyone shares their experience so that users can make their own judgment and decision regarding what to expect when they eventually get there during their Houston charter bus rental trip. If one is unsure about what one will experience in Houston, there is still one thing that we can be absolutely certain about...the sheer size of it!
Along with wide open spaces comes immensely exciting outdoor activities for everyone, you see. Being the fourth largest city in the United States of America has its benefits because it is located near the gulf of Mexico...which also means that a beach getaway is one short mini bus, party bus or charter bus drive away. Visitors, whether you are coming in from another city or you are visiting as a foreign tourists, should spend the time here exploring as many different parts of Houston as possible. Even the far flung unheard-of cities have their own magnetic charm. Culture is something that the people of Houston are really proud of, so, it is time to get down, up close and personal with the locals, do what they do, eat what they recommend and explore it like a local Houston resident! You are sure to fall in love with them, we assure you.
Once you are done exploring the hidden gems of Houston, the downtown Houston metropolis invites you back into your modern day society with places like Bayou Place, Galleria Mall, The Johnson Space Center and of course, the museum district. Well, if you know your way around, you don’t need a rented charter bus to get around.
With first hand knowledge about the culture, cuisine, preferences and lifestyle of the locals will enhance your experience when you come back to the museums or art scene. Basically, you would have experienced what inspires the locals and is in a better position to under why they do the things that they do and how.
There is, quite literally, no ‘best time’ to visit Houston - ANY time is the best time to visit Houston in your rented charter bus because the weather is amazing all-year-round which also means that there is absolutely no need to pack any differently for the trip. What you MAY need to remember to bring along with you for your charter bus Houston trip is, perhaps, a large water bottle, umbrella, caps or hats, light clothing and also...sunscreen. Never forget the sunscreen.
As long as you equip yourself with an open mind, an open heart, willingness to learn, quick wit, sense of humor and curious mind, Houston is a huge playground for the travel junkie.
Downtown Houston Aquarium
Mar 12, 2013 - When people look for local attractions, one of the biggest things that they want to avoid is crowd and over-pricing of admission fee. Foreign travelers may not mind the hefty prices at some of the local Houston charter bus attractions but for people and visitors coming in from other parts of Texas or other cities, the prices might come off as a bit of a turn off.
So, if you are looking for a non-touristy, local attraction designed and one that is made specifically for little kids, it has got to be the downtown Houston Aquarium. Unlike other aquariums and zoos which are often designed to entertain and educate people across all ages, the Houston Aquarium most definitely had the little ones in mind when coming up with the aquarium’s concept.
The price of the admission fee, at its original rate and at the point of writing this, is affordable but those who are looking for nice discount, it is best to order it through CityPass. The pass is accepted in many other different Houston attractions as well and the discount can be applied across all other participating attractions. Please do head over to check out the CityPass deals before coming to Houston for your family vacation.
As far as size is concerned, the Houston Aquarium is not as large as one would anticipate it to be but size is not everything. Despite the smaller size in comparison to other aquariums in other cities, it is not lacking in terms of exhibits and things to do. Especially for the little ones!
Watch their eyes grow bigger as they spot the awesome shark’s tank, as they take a spin on the train ride, get up close and personal with some white tigers and while they try their hand at the fun kiddy rides. As you can see and as some of our Houston charter bus customers contend, the aquarium was built mainly to pump the little ones up with adrenaline and it may be a little less exciting of an experience for older kids.
As with all other kids’ attractions, one of the most important things to consider is hygiene and the Houston Aquarium passes this test flawlessly. After the visit, end it by having your dinner at the aquarium’s beautiful and well-equipped restaurant. It is also more convenient for everyone because if you want to continue exploring the rest of the aquarium, you can do that after that recharge at the restaurant and we are sure the kids are ready for more too! For group trips like church outing, school summer gatherings, field trips and kindergarten family days, we recommend using a rented charter bus instead of having everyone drive themselves to the aquarium. It is more organized and logical.
