EaDo and Memorial/Energy Corridor (Houston neighborhoods)
Apr 12, 2012 - Just like many other cities in the United States, there are different sides to Houston that deserves a fighting chance when it comes to tourism and travel. The culture in each of these cities are distinctive and unique mainly because of the influx of migrants and foreign workers many decades ago and most of them grew roots, had their families and worked in these quaint neighborhoods now. Their unique culture have also seeped deeply into Houston and makes Houston the conglomeration of cultural hotspot that it is today.
One of the most beautiful and personable neighborhoods in Houston is the EADo neighborhood located on the East End of the city. Once upon a time, it used to be home to one of the country’s largest Chinatown in the country and although the site of Chinatown has moved on to another place to accommodate the size of the market, it leaves behind the shops and ethnic-rich grocery stores, bars, nightclubs and restaurants too. Our Houston party bus rental customers to use the George R. Brown Convention Center nearby will often come to these shops for quick lookarounds, shop and mingle around after their event is over. Apart from the market, the neighborhood has been growing over the years, quite exponentially, and that is why the Dynamo soccer stadium is often used for friendly games and matches from colleges, schools and large organizations. The neighborhood continues to attract residents from nearby cities and neighborhoods which contributed significantly to the healthy economic growth of the city.
And as we all know it, Houston is really huge on becoming greener and providing its residents with alternative energy and because of their consistent and persistent growth in this area, Houston is known as the energy capital of the world. Memorial/Energy Corridor measures merely thirty seven acres in size but it houses a huge population of intelligent working class. So much so that this neighborhood is known as one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in the city. Only a couple of years ago, developers had their eye on this part of Houston and started building malls, city malls, pedestrian-friendly Memorial City Mall. On top of that, interested developers who saw its potential built the City Center (it is different from downtown Houston) and also remade the Town and Country Village.
There are many other different parts of Houston that is most definitely worth a visit, if not for the number retail outlets, shopping options, event and sports venues, it is for the host of friendly locals who will not hesitate to point visitors and foreign guests in the right direction.
We are pretty sure there is something for everyone in the very nooks and crannies of Houston neighborhoods.
When Is The Best Time To Visit Houston
Feb 13, 2012 - With blessed sunny weather all year round, there is no ‘best time’ to visit Houston, technically speaking and the tourism industry reflects the fact that locals who dread the dreary wet winter in their hometowns naturally picks Houston as their favorite city to visit. In fact, with the warm, pleasant weather and affordable pricing across the board, Houston has become a quick getaway option for people from all over the world, all year round. However, even with that said, there seems to be a surge of tourists during spring and autumn months when the temperature is less hot and humid, which makes heading outdoors without sunscreen, umbrella or raincoat possible.
During summer months, when the weather is particularly punishing, local Houston residents like to rent a charter bus together with their family and friends for some cooling off at the Gulf of Mexico, slightly down south. This practice is popular during summer because that is when the kids get off school for months for their summer break and parents who are looking for some serious R and R decide to take their kids for a short vacation.
Suffice to say, it pays to plan ahead of time for your vacation because this means that you will know what to expect and know precisely what you want to explore when you are here. Visitors can expect throngs of people in Houston during the months of March, April, May, October and November. The number of people and tourists tend to dwindle down in December and January.
Though Houston is a huge tourist magnet for the country, there is always a rise in the number of party bus visitors when there is a special event or festival going on, like special promotions or sporting events. And of course, with a large city like Houston, there are events all year round. The most popular festive periods of Houston are the Livestock Show and Rodeo, which is popular because the nature of the show is absolutely unique to the locals! Let’s face it, when it comes to rodeo, no one does it better than the cities in and around Texas. Of course, there is also the Holiday Parade during Thanksgiving, which is one of the largest and liveliest in the country.
During summer, Houston vacationers will usually head to suburb towns and neighborhoods to enjoy a cooling time with their family and friends at places like Clear Lake and Galveston. We would like to note that while hotels and other large establishments remain open during public holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving, others are not; it is best to confirm via phone call or email. And to save yourself some money, some larger establishments offer packages and special promotions during special events so, check the travel guide or website for the details.
Houston's Kemah Boardwalk
Nov 12, 2012 - Six Flags Houston used to be a hot family tourist getaway spots in Houston but ever since it closed its doors here, Kemah Boardwalk has taken over its top spot space on the list of best theme park in Houston! Basically, Kemah Boardwalk is a hotel and restaurant by nature but the management of the place thought that there was much more to be explored in terms of offering its customers, patrons and their guests more entertainment. Therefore, it came up with a forty two acre complex and developed it into a boardwalk and entertainment outlet for kids. Conveniently and strategically located is its restaurant, Landry's Restaurants which were opened back in 1997. While the kids have their fill of fun at the entertainment complex, the parents turn their attention to the many different, diverse and attractive shopping outlets there are.
Make your way there in a party bus, shuttle bus or rented bus charter and explore the midway games, carousel, Ferris Wheel, roller coasters and cafes.
Party bus guests apparently loves all the rides there, especially the aviator because no one can really resist the fun and adrenaline rush when the riders swing through the air in airships in and out of the rudder. For those who are not up for such extreme excitement can try the observation deck called the Boardwalk Tower. The Drop Zone seems to be another loved ride because we are talking about a hundred and forty feet tall drop tower...it will definitely leave you screaming for more!
Kemah is perfect for the little ones as well because there are many other 'safer' rides here including the Century Wheel, Carousel, Kemah Railwoad, Balloon Wheel and also Red Baron.
After a fun-filled day at Kemah, we are sure that you are going to be very thankful that you have got your transportation all ironed out and don't need to drive yourself home. Rest, relax and recount all the fun moments in the comforts of the air-conditioned Houston party bus rental vehicle instead.
