Book a Staycation
If you’re not traveling outside of Houston, book a getaway inside the city. The Intercontinental Medical Center is perfectly situated near some of Houston’s most popular attractions, such as the Houston Zoo, Hermann Park, the Houston Museum of Natural Science, shops and restaurants at Rice Village, and more. Check out the hotel’s accommodation packages and enjoy being within minutes of all that Houston has to offer.
With sunnier days (remember to change your clocks on March 14), there’s no better time to enjoy the outdoor and green spaces Houston has to offer. Have a picnic, ride bikes, or take walks in Houston’s many parks, enjoy the city’s farmers markets, or take a day trip to Houston’s nearby state parks and beaches.
