"Additional information directed to the needs of international travelers, senior travelers, handicapped, or very young travelers helps set this series apart from the many travel guides that now fill the shelves." -Review of Texas Books For the businessman, newcomer, or visitor, A Marmac Guide to Houston and Galveston provides information on population, services, recreation, accomodations, restaurants, and main attractions. Comprehensive information in an easy-to-use format on the area's past, transportation, lodging, dining, nightlife, entertainment, shopping, sights, and more highlight this volume. While Houston holds tight to its traditions, economic development and cultural diversity are rapidly molding it into the international city of the twenty-first century. And this newly updated edition is the perfect guide with which to explore it. The list of attractions that includes the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, Space Center Houston, the Astrodome, Six Flags AstroWorld, the Port of Houston, and the Downtown Pedestrian Tunnel System is essential for anyone seeking something new and fun to do.
