Need to get to Galveston from Airport-G. Bush International

HI everyone, next December our family of 3 is going on a cruise from galveston, We are arriving a few days early and wanted to get to Galveston after we land in Houston. I dont want to rent a car, and looking for the most feasible way of getting there. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also on the way back we have two night to spend in Houston. Want somewhere reasonably close to Airport, also near shopping, maybe a indoor pool etc. We have a 10 year odl boy. Much appreciated any help with these things. Looking forward to coming down there and escape the Canadian winter at that time.

I would do a thread search on transportation from Bush (IAH) to Galveston..there are several with info.

As for your return, I would suggest staying in The Woodlands. Lots of shopping/dining/entertainment options await you there. Hotel choices: Marriott Waterway, Hilton Garden Inn, Residence Inn, Drury Inn & Suites to get you started, but not sure if any have an indoor pool.

There is a trolley that runs thru some of The Woodlands area near the Woodlands Mall and Market Street shopping/dining/entertainment area.

Hi,

I have spent some time looking, and this is one of the most reasonable companies I found:

It is a good hour trip, so I think that is why the prices are, as they are. You might contact this company to see what they can do for you.

hope this helps.

enjoy the cruise!

I know you said you did not want to rent a car but if you change your mind that would be the best option. While in Houston did you plan to go sight see at all? The Woodlands as mentioned is a good area. If you wanted to go to places like NASA or musuems then downtown or Sugar Land (but not as close to the airport)
