I loved the market and the crafts being sold. There were a few places selling food and drinks, and the majority of shops were selling similar Mexican items and a few shops had some gimmicky cowboy bits... I had expected more but it was still...More

Unaware of the beautiful architecture, Buddette went for a walk while waiting for The Bologna Eater to get back from work and was pleasantly surprised at the beauty of older architecture hidden around the newer buildings.

I think this place was highly over hyped by some good marketing content. We really didn´t experience anything worth the Metro fare

Fun to just walk around and enjoy the beautiful weather while I was there. It is always nice to get out and walk.

Not a lot in Market Square, but it is a nice little park. Great Greek restaurant located there, Niko Nikos. Le Carafe, oldest bar in Houston is just across the street. So is Char Bar, another historic bar.

Could anybody help advise about travelling from George Bush Airport to downtown, I see there is no rail link but there is a bus, can't seem to find out how long it takes or any other options apart from an expensive cab? I have an 8 hour stopover and fancied visiting downtown if anyone can help?
