Spotlight on Houston, Texas!
February 2nd 2017 Posted by: SellMyTimeshareNow SMTN Category: Travel

Super Bowl Sunday is upon us! In just a few days, we will be huddled around a TV, eating chicken wings, and rooting for our favorite team. (Our New Hampshire office is particularly looking forward to cheering on the Patriots!). And it’s all happening in the marvelous city of Houston, Texas!

While it’s unlikely you have tickets to the big game and will be celebrating around Houston this weekend, we still think it’s a destination worth visiting. We’d like to help you plan a Houston vacation with these ideas of what to do and where to stay to get the most out of your trip!

What to Do

Houston is a vibrant city bursting with a diverse range of activities and attractions that will engage and excite any type of traveler. From golfing, entertainment, museums, shopping, and parks, you’ll never run out of things to do and see.

Museums and Attractions

If you are looking to check out multiple museums and attractions, consider purchasing a Houston CityPASS so you can see everything at a discount. This includes the Space Center Houston, the Fine Arts Museum, Downtown Aquarium, Houston Zoo, Children’s Museum of Houston, and more.

The Great Outdoors

Houston ranks first in the nation for total acreage of parkland. Boasting 49,643 acres of park space, there’s plenty of natural beauty to enjoy throughout Houston. Whether you are looking to take a bike tour of Houston, bring your furry friend to a dog park, go bird watching, or even just take a leisurely jog, you’ll find ample beautiful parks to enjoy.

Another way to enjoy the great outdoors is to cool down at one of the local water parks or splash zones. Check out Wet ‘n’ Wild SplashTown, the area’s largest water park for a variety of thrilling water slides, kid’s splash areas, and relaxing pool areas. Schlitterbahn Galveston Island has over 30 rides and attractions such as a wave pool, water coasters, slides, and white water rapids. Splash parks exist within the city’s park spaces, and are a perfect way to enjoy a quick cool down. Some of the most notable include Edna Mae Washington Park, Gene Green Beltway 8 Park, McClendon Park, and Bane Park.

Avid golfers will love the dozens of scenic golf course options. Some of the best courses you’ll want to check out are August Pines, BlackHorse Golf Course, and Cypresswood Golf Course. Each offering their own unique landscaping, pristine greens and fairways, and year-round perfect golf weather.

Notable Restaurants

Houston is home to over 10,000 restaurants that serve cuisine from over 70 countries. With such a diverse selection, you’re sure to find food you love as well as food you’ve always wanted to try!

Some award-winning restaurants you’ll want to visit include:

  • 51Fifteen
  • Adair Kitchen
  • Backstreet Cafe
  • Barbecue Inn
  • Ciao Bello
  • Indika
  • Underbelly

Where to Stay

For the best deal on accommodations for your Houston vacation, you should consider renting at a nearby timeshare resort. Timeshare suites give you the option to enjoy more space and desirable amenities like kitchens and private balconies—all while having access to the great services and luxuries of a high-end resort. Not to mention, timeshare rentals cost less per night than the average area hotel. You really can’t beat it!
