Ditto.
Any Dallas/San Antonio /Huston shabbos hotels?
Doesn't sound like much to do in Houston, also looks like no shabbos hotels

What's the weather like in the end of February?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Texas Gun Club in Stafford has a very good range.
You can go to dinner at Casa in Bellaire. Other than that Houston doesn’t have anything. Keep in mind that during this time a year everyone stays indoors. It way too hot.

Depends who's coming and what they like to do. We really enjoyed NASA's Johnson Space Center, seeing Mission Control and a Saturn V and a space shuttle you can go inside of. The children's museum is excellent if you're bringing kids. We also went to the George HW Bush Presidential Library, Natural Science Museum, and Galveston to see dolphins, oil rigs, and an old mansion. Wherever you go, make sure to end the day with dinner at Genesis!

Thank you! No kids, just couple. Any suggestions on where to stay?
Also, we did Bush Library in Dallas. Is there a/t else in Houston?

It depends what points you have. We stayed at Homewood Suites near the Galleria for 23k Hilton points per night for a suite, and we were quite happy with the location and price.

Jury Duty: Nothing to do there but chill and write a TR. Kinda like the beach but missing the view and ocean breeze.

I have no first hand knowledge but hopefully this article from a year and a half ago can help a bit. (Article is geared  to chabad families but should be useful to all)

I think @bluestrings recently moved there, don't think he's active here but maybe you'll find something helpful on his other social media:
Mazal Tov @bluestrings on the big move to… TEXAS!!
It should be with hatzlacha, health & wealth.

It’s a very nice Jewish community.
@Kobe Bryant?



ETA: just realized you posted on Apr 9, still catching up post-pesach lol, hope it's still helpful @JuryDuty.
