HOUSTON TOURIST ATTRACTIONS, HOUSTON TOURISM

Houston AttractionsHouston Attractions - Airport - Houston has two major airports for travellers to fly in and out of. On the north side of town is Bush Intercontinental (IAH) and down south is William P. Hobby (HOU). IAH is so large, it is called a "city within a city" and provides the community with one of the finest and most modern facilities in the United States. 23 scheduled passenger planes and numerous charter airlines operate through the airport with international service. The airport has five terminal buildings, A, B, C, D, and E that prove to be very modern and accessible. You can wait on your connection in one of the several restaurants situated in the airport or shop for souvenirs in the gift shops.

HOU is off of 1-45 south, with an 80 acre stretch of terminal complex. First built in 1937 as Houston's first public airport, Hobby has underwent a recent multimillion dollar overhaul to modernize the facilities to today's standards. It has 7 scheduled passenger airlines that have nonstop or direct service to over 65 cities in the nation.

Houston TourismBoth Houston Airports have car rental desks in them. If this does not suit you, you can pick up a bus schedule in the terminal or call a taxi. Hobby Airport is only seven minutes from the downtown and midtown areas, while IAH is about thirty minutes without traffic. If you plan on staying in a hotel near the airports, then a taxi is a good idea. If you are lodging farther out into the city, a taxi can get quite expensive, especially with Houston traffic. Arrange to be picked up by someone you know if you can or utilize the cheap fares that the Houston Metro Bus has to offer or the shuttle buses that run to and from the airports.

While driving back either of the Houston Airports when your visit is over, allow plenty of time to make your flight. IAH and HOU are accessible by many different ways, but if you are trying to make a flight during 8am - 6pm, you could get caught in traffic. When going to IAH, Beltway 8 is the best route to take. If you are heading to HOU, try taking Loop 610 to I - 45 south, to bypass as much traffic as possible.
