That depends where you’re planning to go. Downtown Houston, about 16 miles from Houston, TX Airport (EFD-Ellington Field), can be challenging to drive in. Make life easy by booking something small, fuel-efficient, and simple to operate. Having said that, Houston is also a jumping off point for some of the sandy shores around Harris County. If your vacation is more about tearing down the open road, then you may prefer something with a bit more trunk space and room to move about. What about a full-size car or a standard SUV?
