George Bush Intercontinental Airport(IHA) is the city’s biggest and busiest airport. Most people drive, but Houston traffic can be intense, so allow an hour’s driving time on average. The METRO public bus route 102 serves IHA. This airport is on a true Texan scale, with 5 large terminals. Terminals B through E are connected by the TerminaLink train, while Terminal A is connected to B and C by a bus service. Wifi is available in all terminals, and if you’re bringing your pets with you, each terminal also has its own pet relief area.

Arriving in Austin
Austin is a college town, and the corresponding laid-back, artsy, live-it-up vibe is a big part of its charm. What this town might lack in big-city amenities it more than makes up in energy and oddity. When the city motto is “Keep Austin Weird” you know to expect the unexpected. The famous 6th Street scene is amazing for live music and late-night fun, with the whole strip closed to traffic and open for pedestrian revelry every weekend.
A strong bi-cultural influence has flooded Austin with color, life, and some of the best Mexican food you’ll find this side of the border. It’s also part of what makes the city such a great place for off-the-beaten-track shopping. Tiny shops stuffed with handicrafts and artwork dot the city, along with kitschy thrift stores and the fabulous outdoor Renaissance Market.
