The Houston Marathon is an annual event held in January that draws runners from all over the world. This marathon, which has been running for more than 40 years, is a great way to kick off the year with a healthy and challenging competition. The course takes participants through some of Houston’s most iconic neighborhoods and provides stunning views of its skyline.
The Houston Rodeo is another popular event held each year, usually between February and March. Rodeo attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the globe who come to watch rodeos such as bull riding and barrel racing, take part in activities like petting zoos and carnival rides, and listen to amazing performances by big names like George Strait, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, and more!
Lodgeur is a popular place to stay for guests who prefer hopping on the METRORail at the station next to Mid Main Lofts to being stuck in the parking and traffic near Rodeo. (Check out the post on using the METRORail from Midtown.)
The Houston Art Car Parade is an annual event held every April which celebrates both local artistry and automobile culture with colorful decorated cars parading around town. This parade features hundreds of unique cars created by local artists ranging from classic vintage models covered in graffiti to modern vehicles outfitted with flashing lights or outlandish designs – it’s sure to be a spectacle you won’t want to miss! Be sure to check out Lodgeur’s Guide to the Art Car Parade.
The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) is an annual event that takes place in Houston, Texas. It brings together more than 60,000 industry professionals from around the world to discuss the latest innovations and advancements in offshore energy technology. The conference has been running since 1969 and continues to be one of the most important events in the oil and gas industry. Attendees frequently choose Lodgeur when they want to be close to the OTC but have more space and privacy than a hotel room offers.
The Bayou City Art Festival (BCAF) is a Houston staple that has been celebrated for 50 years! This event brings together 1,500 regional artists from 32 states and over 300 booths filled with handmade art including paintings, sculptures, photography, and drawings. It’s no wonder BCAF draws in an impressive crowd of 300,000 visitors twice a year during the best months to be outdoors in Houston – March at Memorial Park and October at Sam Houston Park.
Houston is one of the most vibrant theater cities in the United States, and its theater season is no exception. Every year, Houston’s theaters come alive with a variety of performances ranging from classic plays to modern musicals. Lodgeur’s furnished apartments across the street from Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston (MATCH) make it a popular choice with actors coming to town for a series of performances, who are looking for a more comfortable home away from home during the theater season.
Houston is a great place to be a sports fan or a professional athlete. The city and its surrounding area have teams in all three major American professional sports leagues – the NFL, NBA and MLB. Lodgeur hosts professional athletes in town for a season who are looking for the consistent quality of a hotel, but with the amenities of a complete apartment home.
Houston’s events draw millions of visitors to the city each year. Thousands of visitors have chosen Lodgeur’s furnished apartments in Midtown as their home base to explore the nation’s 4th largest city. Come see why they keep coming back.
