We are going to Texas in April, 06 and would like to find out which city Dallas or Houston would have the most things for us to see that were interesting.
Any RV parks with WiFi near these city's.

I'm partial to Houston. Just south you have NASA and Galveston. Lots to see and do in the area. Lot's of good RV campgrounds with WiFi. Check under the South Central Rallies and see some of the campgrounds in the area for Houston.

Yeppers, Houston, hands down. I've traveled to both places frequently. Dallas is bland. Houston is exciting w/NASA, the shore, and the ever famous: Papacito's restaurant chain...but watch it; the food flavoring may keep you up at nite

I guess you have never heard of San Antonio, if you want to enjoy a place and not face the pressure of what is best or needs to be done, spend a few hours or a day on the river. Chilling like you will never find in the metro cities.

Of course, that is only if you haven't read that in the State of Texas, San Antonio rates above both Dallas and Houston as a tourist location!

But------to each their own. Best of luck wherever you decide to go.

TEXAS is great----------

I have to agree that San Antonio beats Houston and Dallas, but I was answering his question....Houston or Dallas. While in San Antonio, make the short run down to Corpus Christi.

San Antoni has two mayor amusement parks while Houston has none now. They tore Astroworld down.

Not after you Bob, even though we now live near Houston, I still feel San Antonio is a better tourist town, but Houston is still pretty good. Shoot my wife is a native Houstonian.

San Antonio is great for tourists and it has lots of action outside the city. Innertubes down the river, caverns, and several more major attractions around New Braunfels outside of San Antonio. But, Galveston south of Houston has great seafood, a magnificent aquarium (sharks, barracuda, penquins, etc at or above eye level), submarine to wander through, aircraft museum and beaches to enjoy (not as good as Florida beaches, but still nice). If you visit Houston, be sure to consider our great zoo and history museums. The Montrose area also has some nice night life.
Just thought I would put in my 2 cents worth.

We have been watching this topic since it started. Thanks for all the input.
We did the San Antonio thing in the 2004 Rally and when we pick up the new Camper next week down By Don in LA. we were thinking of Houston. I want to do the space center and Cheri wants to do the pyramids at Galveston Island. We we will be looking for someplace to camp . Any suggestions?

Jim,

Sounds like you're looking for something between Houston and Galveston. You might want to post this question down in the South Central area where some of the Texas Boomers from that neck of the woods will see it. We're up on the northwest side of Houston and haven't stayed at any RV parks south of Houston - at least, any that we would recommend!

Rusty
