We have 26 and 18 hr layovers at IAH next month on the way to/from BZE. Can anyone help us figure out what to do during that time? We have 3 kids, ages 6 and under, so tips about anything family-oriented that is close to IAH are appreciated. Any good restaurants or kids activities close? Also, there is a Rockets game one of the nights. How hard is it to get tickets? Anyone know an approximate price? I see they go on sale later this week. Thanks for any info.

cakelee, there really isn't much around the airport. Do you plan to rent a car? You can stay in downtown Houston and be close to the Toyota Center (where the Rockets play) and close to the MetroRail (above ground subway) where you can ride to the Childrens Mueseum or other museums. I believe the Rail also passes by the zoo. Regardless, the zoo, museums and park are all relatively close.


Let me know if you have other questions about Houston.

I suggest renting a car, cab fare here will eat your lunch! Above suggestions are what I would do with the kiddos, especialy go to the childrens museum here, it is great.

Thanks. We haven't figured out where we'll stay yet, so downtown may be an option. I actually have a friend that just moved to Katy, so she will be chauffering us around! I saw on one of the websites that the aquarium and zoo were only open through mid-Sept. Is that true?

What aquarium? The resturant? No, that can't be true. Everything here is open all year round, except for maybe the theme park/water park.

Katy is not close to town but perhaps there are some fun kido things to do out there.
