How Smartphones Are Changing the Face of Travel

How Smartphones Are Changing the Face of Travel The travel industry has come a long way in just a few short years. A little over a decade ago, travel meant hopping in the family car with a glove compartment full of maps or boarding a plane for several hours, touching down at a destination with loved ones far from home, phones, and television. The question of “Does our hotel have Wi-Fi?” likely never passed a traveler’s lips -- mostly because Wi-Fi didn’t even exist. read more »

Splish Splash at Splash Pads, Splash Parks & Spray Grounds This Summer!

When I was a child, swimming pools and water fountains were distinct, separate entities. For immersion, you had to find a pool. Whether it was private or public, there were changing rooms and lifeguards and rules. (Unfortunately, the ocean wasn’t an everyday option where I grew up.) Fountains were fun to watch – the water shot all over the place, and sometimes, you could stand in the mist blown your way by a helpful breeze. If you were really lucky – or your accompanying adult looked the other way – you might dip a toe in. read more »

James Turrell's Art Comes to "Light" in NYC, Houston

The next time you walk into a dark room and flip on the light switch, imagine yourself creating a work of art. James Turrell’s approach isn’t quite so simplistic, but he does find inspiration in the basic function of electric illumination. In a career spanning five decades, he has cast cubes of light into a room, built hallways and rooms of illuminated color, and cultivated fields of shifting light that could disorient you faster than a corn maze in the fall. read more »

Houston's Historic Cemetery

Ever heard the tales of eccentric billionaire businessman and filmmaker Howard R. Hughes? Or traveled out of former Texas Governor William P. Hobby’s namesake airport? Texas and its characters seem to be both bigger and bolder, and Houston is no exception. Located on Washington Avenue, just one mile west of Houston’s bustling downtown, history meets serenity at Houston’s historic Glenwood Cemetery. The 85-acre grounds serve as a memorial to the men and women who shaped Houston (and Texas), while providing a scenic place to pay respects and find shade on a warm spring afternoon. read more »

This Winter in Houston: Rodeo, Spaceships and Ancient Civilizations

The term “Houston winter” is a bit of a non sequitur, since temperatures in January and February rarely dip below 50 and often climb to 70 degrees. It still isn’t flip-flops and shorts weather, but it’ll do compared to the freezing, storm-battered northeastern seaboard, the windy northern plains or terminally gray Pacific Northwest. read more »

Recapture a Childhood Thrill at Houston’s Jurassic Safari

When you were a kid, what’s the one thing that rocked your world most when you took a trip to the museum? I’d wager that most would say dinosaurs — remembering the thrill of seeing the sharp teeth, skeletons or models of fearsome carnivores such as the tyrannosaurus rex, velociraptor and dimetrodon.Now the Houston Museum of Natural Science, which is a Houston CityPASS attraction, has taken dinosaur viewing to a whole new level with its new, 36,000-square foot, $85 million Morian Hall of Paleontology, which opened last June. read more »
