Any suggestions on how to pass a 7 hr IAH stopover between flights? I guess Galveston seems ambitiously far by public transport - would the downtown Houston mall be the unexcitingly safer option? Or is there a nice shady garden/park not requiring changes of bus or whatever?
I know there are better sights than that, but I'll be hampered by jet lag and probably have carry on luggage backpack-style if there is no place to lock it up (too precious to leave in hands of airlines). But willing to make a good effort for a rare chance to revisit the place. tks
