If you haven’t already, now is the right time to start planning accommodations for the 2015 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 March 3rd to March 22, 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 Tim McGraw, John Legend, Justin Moore and Blake Shelton. 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, as well as exciting rides for the kids, wine tastings, dancing, educational events, shopping, dining and more! In addition, you will be supporting this great organization that provides scholarships for kids to help them earn a college degree. The Houston Rodeo raises thousands of dollars for scholarships each year!
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 a furnished apartment, also known as 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 Murphy’s 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.
Come to the Houston Rodeo this year and don’t miss this amazing event!
