If you haven't already, now is the right time to start planning accommodations for the 2013 Houston Rodeo. This livestock show and rodeo has gone on for more than 80 years. It's not only the world's largest livestock exhibition, it's also one of the most vibrant entertainment events in the Southwest. This year, the event is scheduled to last from February 25 to March 17, and this 20-day event will host a huge number of musicians and entertainers.
Major names in the country music genre will be attending, including Toby Keith, Demi Lovato, Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney. Of course, the concerts are just one part of the festivities. There's also a cook-off, parade and plenty of rodeo events like a calf scramble and trail ride. Visitors over 21 years of age also receive free admission to The Hideout, a big tent where performers like Kyle Bennett, Six Market Blvd. and Brian Keene perform.
If you want to get the most from the Houston Rodeo experience, a two or three day vacation just won't cut it. Extended hotel stays can add up quickly, however, and finding an available hotel can prove to be a challenge. Hotels price their rooms according to supply and demand, and costs skyrocket during major events. You also have to worry about food costs; most hotels offer scant resources for cooking, so you'll be stuck with restaurant fare or deli take-away.
An option you may want to consider is corporate housing in Houston. Few people know about it, so you'll be able to benefit from greater availability and a wider selection of temporary furnished accommodations than a hotel could offer. Corporate housing offers furnished apartments for extended stay guests. Many of the people taking advantage of corporate housing are busy professionals working on temporary assignments, but this type of housing arrangement is also ideal for families and for long-lasting events such as the Houston Rodeo.
Not only will corporate housing help you save money on long-term stays, these furnished apartments also allow you greater options for preparing your own food. During a major event, this can save you a substantial amount of money. At Corporate Housing Associates we will work with you to find a space that will fit your specific needs, even if you're traveling with your family or a large group. Taking advantage of corporate housing will allow you to stay comfortably for as long as you'd like to ensure you take in all the sights and sounds of this year's Houston Rodeo but have all the comforts of home.
