We will be visiting Rice Univ. and Houston for 2 days next month for my daughter. In addition to visiting the campus we want to get a feel for Houston. We will be exploring Rice Village as well as Uptown Houston (the Galleria).
Are there any other interesting neighborhoods with coffee shops, restaurants and shopping that would be of interest to a future college student??
What part of town would you recommend we stay in?
Should we rent a car? We will be flying into IAH.
