Houston RV rental – a special US vacation

They say that Texas is more than a state, it’s a lifestyle. And there can be no better way to experience it than by renting a camper, and hitting the road from Houston.The USA’s fourth largest city has something for everyone, from top-rated arts and culture, world class sports teams, the unique experience of the Houston Space Center, to the peace of the Bayou just out of town.

From Houston, you could start a road trip through America's Southern States with cities like Albuquerque, Phoenix and Los Angeles worth a stop. You may also head to the east coast and explore New York in your motorhome rental. Alternatively, you may begin an RV rental tour in Seattle should you decide to discover the west coast.

Park your RV – camping in Houston

There are plenty of high-quality RV campgrounds around Houston. Lake View and North Lake RV resorts have modern amenities and swimming pools. Traders Village RV Park is adjacent to a weekend flea market. For an out-of-town experience, Rayford Crossing RV resort is 20 miles out of Houston at Woodlands Town Centre, full of outdoor cafes, concert venues and golfing. 

Restaurants and nightlife, a taste of Texas

Enjoy an American rite of passage with the restaurants in the Goode Co. franchise. Their signature spot is the Armadillo Palace, which features live Texas Music several nights a week. Couples can be spotted showing off their best Texas two-step on the dance floor, while patrons scoff down Texan comfort food such as Mesquite BBQ ribs or the daily handmade Pecan Pie.

You must also try ‘Tex Mex’ cuisine. This generations-old food culture is based on the Tejano traditions, from Texans of Spanish or Mexican heritage,that lived in Texas before it became a republic. While it has a lot of crossover with traditional Mexican food, there is more beef and cheese, probably reflecting the wealthier society it developed in and the use of cumin as a spice. Many Houston Tex-Mex restaurants are family dynasties, like El Tiempo. They serve classic dishes including sizzling beef fajitas, but have modern twists, such as deep-fried avocados stuffed with cheese and spicy shrimp.

Things to do in Houston

The first stop for any Houston RV vacation has to be the Space Center, the official visitor’s experience of NASA headquarters. Exhibits are truly out of this world, multimedia, and hands on. Currently under construction is a replica of space shuttle Explorer.

The Houston weather forecast is generally warm, so culture buffs can attend plays at the Miller Outdoor Theatre for eight months of the year. For a souvenir with a difference (maybe some pre-loved cowboy boots or a genuine Texan Ten-Gallon), spend an afternoon browsing in the Texas Junk Co. An all-American sporting experience can be had at Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros Major League baseball team. The stadium is adjacent to Union Station, right in downtown Houston. A vintage locomotive runs along 800 feet of track inside the venue. If you can’t make it to a game, tours are available through the week.

Houston Airport and where to go next

Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport is one of America’s busiest, with five terminals. It is United Airlines’ Headquarters and hub, and has more flights directly to Mexico than any other US airport. It is 23 miles north of downtown Houston. Houston is easily accessible to Austin and San Antonio. You can also drive your RV rental to Dallas and Corpus Christi.

Houston highways and byways – driving tips

During the summer months, Houston weather is hot, frequently over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Try to avoid outdoor activities in the middle of the day and keep hydrated. They don’t say, “It’s bigger than Texas’ for nothing, so take breaks when driving long distances.
