Texas Hotel Reservations
Visiting the Greater Houston Area
Houston and its surrounding metro area offer visitors a nearly endless selection of impressive events and festivals, top tier attractions, charming suburbs, intense sporting events, and can’t-miss concerts. During the fall and into the winter, the landscape is just as robust. From downtown Houston to nearby respites like Katy, Sugar Land, and Seabrook, find your favorite destination in the area during your next stay.
Plan to check out one of the year’s premier festivals in Plantersville. Found northwest of downtown Houston, just between Montgomery and Navasota, Plantersville hosts the annual Texas Renaissance Festival from October 8th through November 27th. You’ll walk into a recreation of a 16th century English village, complete with entertainers – jugglers, minstrels, comedians, and more – across six stages. Don’t forget about the wide variety of food.
Take the whole family over to Ellington Field in Houston for the Wings Over Houston Airshow. Over the weekend of October 22nd and 23rd, this airshow will features daring stunts, choreographed performances by the Navy’s Blue Angels and Force Thunderbirds of the U.S. Air Force.
Houston, as with much of Texas, is a diverse city with a myriad of cultures present in everyday life. You’ll see this first hand when you check out the 25th Annual Turkish Festival. On November 5th and 6th, make your way to the Jones Plaza in downtown Houston for authentic dance and music performances, food, and plenty of kid’s activities. The drive in from nearby Alvin and Deer Park is quick.
The Toyota Center in Houston will be bursting with activity this fall. The NBA’s Houston Rockets start their 2016-17 campaign this October, and you’ll find an eclectic batch of concerts coming to the Toyota Center, too. On November 9th, you can see Adele live on stage at 7:30 p.m., classic rockers Black Sabbath will grace the stage on November 10th at 8 p.m., and the iconic Andrea Bocelli will be live on stage on December 11th.
When your late summer visit to the Houston area has you in The Woodlands, be sure to check out the annual Beyond the Pines Music Festival. One of the most anticipated events of the year, Beyond the Pines is held at Town Green Park on September 10th starting at 10 a.m.
Texas is firmly entrenched as a football powerhouse. From the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans, to the University of Texas Longhorns, you’ll find a variety of excellent teams in the state. In Houston, however, you’ll be in Cougar country. The University of Houston Cougars kick off their home schedule at TDECU Stadium on September 10th against Lamar University, and finish up the their home games with a match-up against the University of Louisville on November 17th.
