Your guide to Houston
Southern culture weaves through America’s fourth-largest city, an enormous metropolis that people from around the world call home. From its location on the Gulf of Mexico, it embodies the stereotype of everything being bigger in Texas, while also taking everything slow, as befits its Southern nature. The city is home to Rice University, the University of Houston, and NASA and much of the American space industry, while an exciting culinary scene stems from the many immigrant entrepreneurs. Downtown Houston’s bustling urbanity hosts a variety of professional sports teams, theaters, and live music venues, while suburbs offer slower options, like the greenery of Pearland, or the small-town feel of Sugar Land and Cypress.
The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Houston
Houston’s spring tends to be pleasant, with average high temperatures in the 70s Fahrenheit and lows in the 50s and the least amount of rain of the year. Winter is a bit cooler, but similarly comfortable. Summer teeters toward extremely hot, with average highs hitting the mid-90s and the lows staying well above 70 degrees, accompanied by significant humidity. The hot weather comes in tandem with the rain — especially in June, which averages more than six inches. Summer also brings hurricane season in Houston, which can bring wild rains until fall — so you should always be aware of the current forecasts when visiting.
