Transportation

Airports
Two airports serve the Houston area: Houston Hobby (HOU) and George Bush Intercontinental (IAH). We recommend that attendees fly in to Houston Hobby because it is closer to the hotel and campus and shuttle service is provided free of charge to South Shore Harbor guests. (Note: Southwest Airlines has multiple flights into Hobby from all member states.)
