  • Custom candle making in Heights boutique
    At the Candle Bar, you will have the opportunity to learn a new skill and create 2 unique one-of-a-kind candles. Come pull up a chair and we'll serve you a drink of your choice (red or white wine, or a local beer). Take in the beautiful aesthetics of the store and make something special for someone special...or simply just yourself. Here you can take a piece of Houston back home with you. We'll start off by teaching you the process behind making your own personal candle and the science behind building a fragrance. Then we'll walk you through building your own fragrance. Once we've completed that, we will guide you through making and pouring your own candle. While the candle is drying, feel free to shop at Forth & Nomad, or relax on our beautiful, wooden patio under our historic oak trees. Please allow up to 3 hours for your candles to dry before taking them home. You can also pick up your candles at another time. We hope to see you soon!

  • Historic Galveston Ghost Tour
    I’ll give you the inside scoop on the historical information of all of Galveston’s best ghost stories. The ghost tour guides take you on a grand expedition throughout Downtown Galveston and beyond while you soak in the sights and sounds of our eerie island. Even the most seasoned ghost hunter will be delighted. I’ll offer a unique, rich history on all that Galveston island is and was and why this special place is considered the most haunted city in the United States. Filled with horror, Galveston’s ghost history is unmatched with episodes of murder, suicide, cannibalism, pirates, ghosts and visions that will plague your very soul. Unworldly visions that cannot be rationally explained. The stories that you’ll hear as we venture on our 1½ hour walking Ghost Tour, past the gilded mansions and palaces are only whispered about on Galveston. People here are too afraid to open a dialog with the dead… afraid to unlock the gates of hell. We’ll unravel the horrible, scary secrets that lurk inside the ghost sanctuaries… secrets kept for the past 150 years! We have researched stacks of photographs and letters from those who won’t stay dead! We’ll dive warily into the haunted past and uncover the reasons why this unstoppable paranormal force still grips the island. Other things to note Food, drink and transportation not included. Please arrive 15 minutes before the experience begins. Children under 12 must be accompanied by adult. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothes, as we will be doing a lot of walking.

What's the best way to get around?

Car is the best way to get around here Houston is so huge, buses and subways only work if you are in downtown and even that, it's just so hassle to get around this way. bring a car, or rent a car is cheaper method for your transportation. getting a cab or uber can get expensive real quick, especially if you want to go sightseeing.

Drew

Avoid 1960 from 7-9 am and 5-7 pm Use the backroad with your google maps to travel to the major highways during the heavy traffic hours.

Julius
JuliusLives in Houston

Houston traffic I'll be frank: houston traffic is terrible. but with the right planning, you can avoid much of it. just be sure to not to travel during the times of 7a-9a and 4-7p, and you'll miss the worst of it.

How can I save money on this trip?

Try turo app for better deal on rental car! Free app that lets you rent a car from a private individual from a beater to a luxury vehicle. prices lower than rental companies. worth a look. houston is a city that is better navigated by car. weather doesn't typically permit pedestrians and with how vast houston is a car is best.
