    • Long term parking in Laredo, then taxi to Quetzalcoatl Airport in Nuevo Laredo

      Laredo Dec 25, 2016 at 7:23 PM

      I'm searching for information on long term parking in Laredo, Tx near the border. Having a hard time finding information on where to park and how much it's likely to cost. Surely someone has done it! Can you give me some info?

      Need to take a taxi from the border to Quetzalcoatl Airport (Nuevo Laredo International). Is that do-able?

      Final question: any idea how long this likely to take? I've got a flight out from Nuevo Laredo International late afternoon and don't know exactly how to plan it, timewise.

      Thank you so much for anything you can tell me!

    • Anybody else going on cruise out of Galveston on 06/21?

      We're trying to figure out the most economical way to get four people and a ton of luggage to Galveston from Fort Worth. I can't believe that the rental car places in Galveston aren't open on Sunday!? It's going to cost us a small fortune to piece this thing together.

    • Where are campfires allowed?

      I've heard that no one really cares if you go down the sea wall by the toll bridge,but I was wondering if there was anywhere that it actually wasn't illegal to have a campfire on the beach (preferably secluded and away from the city lights)?

    • hurricane damage

      by katebee Online Now Feb 19, 2009 at 5:40 PM

      I have a civil engineer/city planner guest coming in at the end of February, 2009. He wants to see how Galveston and the area coped with IKE. Any suggestions what he can see? Is the Boliver Ferry operating? Are highways 87 and 124 on High Island open? Also I'd like feed him a good fish dinner. Suggestions much appreciated.

      Texas Trip

      by kellybum Online Now Oct 8, 2008 at 12:53 PM

      We are visiting Texas from the UK next April. Any tips on whether or not Galveston will be up and running by then? It was to be our last port of call for some "chilling" but after Ike we are unsure what to do

      Many thanks
