Cheesecake Factory

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "My Idea of Heaven!"

Quote:
The cheesecake factory, as the name doesn't fully imply, is a chain of restaurants in the US. They do specialise in fantastic cheesecakes but don't let the name fool you, there is a lot more involved in this wonderful place. When and Where ----------------------- On my recent trip to Houston, Texas, my other half and I noticed this restaurant at the local mall just a few blocks from our hotel. I instantly recognised the name, as any big bang theory viewers will know that this is where Penny works! So after a brief look at the menu on the wall, we decided we would have to head back later for dinner. According to their website, www.thecheesecakefactory.com there...Read More

Galleria

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "A Top Notch Designer Mall"

Quote:
Before booking my recent trip to Houston, Texas with my other half, we looked into what to expect when we were there, activities to do and places to visit. The Galleria Mall is the official 7th largest Mall in America. Seeing this and knowing just how much myself and my fiancé like shopping, I booked our hotel just a few blocks down the road from the mall, with every intent of visiting. Located in the "up-town" part of Houston, named "The Galleria District" this mall stands proud covering nearly 3 million square feet of space (this includes the 2 tower blocks and all of the office blocks located on the land) The mall itself is laid out over 3 floors with the bottom floor having...Read More

Houston Zoo

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Lions and Tigers and Bears...Oh My!"

Quote:
The Houston Zoo is a large 55 acre zoo that is home to over 4500 exotic animals located in, yep you guessed it, Houton Texas, USA. The zoo itself can be found just behind Hermann Park and the Houston Museum of Natural Science, in the "Museum Disrtict" of the city. The zoo is open from 9am - 7pm and costs only $10 per adult (anyone over 12) or $6 for children under 12. I think this is fantastic value for a family day out as you can stay in the zoo for as long as you want from opening to closing. The entrance is large and clearly marked with plenty of free parking for those driving. The first thing I noticed about the zoo when we went was how colourful it was, from th...Read More

Hotel | "Outstanding Quality"

The Hilton hotel located on Post Oak Boulevard in Houston, Texas is where my fiancé and I spent 6 nights of our recent trip to Houston. Booking and Prices --------------------------- The Hilton website has a separate page for each of its hotels across the globe. On these pages you can get information on all the facilities that are on offer as well as check photos and virtual tours. To book, there is a room availability checker that allows you to see if there is space for when you would like to stay and which types of rooms are available, of course the prices are also included here. These can be viewed in both US dollars or UK pounds. I really liked this featur...Read More
