A Free Way To Get Around Downtown This Christmas Season

If ever there was a day to come downtown, it would be today -- there's no freaking traffic, the stores aren't packed with the Black Friday madness of a Pearland Target, and you can get around for free.

The Houston Downtown Management District is reviving the free trolley that used to be such a good thing before Metro noticed the word "free" in it.

Starting today at 11 a.m., and for every weeked up to Christmas, trolleys will take people between key downtown destinations for the price of nothing.

Among the stops -- the Houston Pavilions, the Theater District, Discovery Green, Macy's and The Shops at Houston Center Surely that covers a bunch of shopping options.

It runs until 11:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays; 7:30 p.m. on Sundays.
