Day 1: Getting Settled
At Your Rental
Getting settled at your Houston vacation rental provided by Renters Club is key to your vacation relaxation. Once you’ve unpacked and have everything where you need and want it, the relaxation can begin! Our rentals are full of comfortable furnishings, cozy beds, and more that will have you in complete relaxation throughout your stay.
It’s always relaxing to know where and when you’ll be enjoying each meal of your vacation. You may turn to your fully equipped kitchen to prepare some meals, but sometimes there’s nothing more relaxing than going out and letting someone else take care of the cooking and serving. Houston has restaurants serving up every meal of the day, and cuisines including delicious seafood, authentic Mexican dishes, Italian fare, Asian, delicious steakhouses, and more.
See the sights of Houston and let someone else do the driving. There are a variety of companies that offer guided tours of some of Houston’s best landmarks, parks, stadiums, and attractions. Choose a tour that hits locations like Minute Maid Park, Toyota Center, Market Square, Buffalo Bayou, and many more. Depending on the tour, you can spend just a couple hours, or even the whole day getting to know the town you’ve decided to call home for a while.
Day 2: Entertainment Options
While Houston isn’t the first Texas town you think of when you think of the beach, visitors and locals aren’t far from the sand, sun, water, and fun of the Gulf of Mexico. There is a myriad of beaches within a 90-minute drive from downtown Houston, meaning a day at the beach. Swim, sunbathe, or enjoy a more adrenaline-pumping activity like parasailing or jet skiing through the waves of the Gulf. Most beaches have convenient amenities, like picnic areas and bathrooms, while others offer other entertainment like sand volleyball courts and more.
Houston Entertainment Hot Spots
After a day at the beach, relax with entertainment that comes to you. While some people may go for the chaos of a “fun center,” theme park, or other all-in-one entertainment locale, there are more laid-back ways to stay entertained. Houston boasts museums, theaters for live performances and the latest Hollywood blockbusters, comedy clubs, and more where the entertainment comes to you, or you can enjoy a more leisurely pace. When the sun goes down, there are a number of bars, taverns, and clubs offering adults-only entertainment to unwind with after a long day.
Day 3: Relax Your Body and Mind
Many vacationers often load their e-readers or grab a few books to stuff in their carry-on before vacation. It offers something to do throughout the travel days, as well as during down time at your rental. You may have miscalculated your reading needs and end up needing a new book. Houston has a number of bookstores that offer the latest New York Times bestsellers along with independent authors and classics you want to read again. Stop in at stores like Brazos Bookstore or Murder by the Book. To seek out rare, out-of-print, foreign language, and other uncommon reading material, make sure your next read comes from Kaboom Bookstore.
A day at the spa is a great way to relax in Houston at the end of your trip. Houston hosts a number of spas and salons offering a myriad of services. Go home relaxed, rejuvenated, and refreshed! Choose from services like manicures, pedicures, body wraps or scrubs, a variety of massages, and more. Spas aren’t just for the women of the group. Many offer men’s services like manicures, pedicures, scalp treatments, and more that cater to “his” unique needs. Select spas even have salons where you can get a new haircut, or have your makeup professionally done – including a lesson to keep up the routine once you get home.
Select rentals provided by Renters Club have home gym equipment, so you can keep up on your regular routines – you don’t have to leave home at all! For added relaxation, there are gyms, wellness centers, and spas all around Houston that offer extra relaxation, like fitness classes, yoga, Pilates, and other activities to re-center your mind and body before returning home.
