Spring Break Vacation Ideas in Houston & Galveston
Planning your Spring Break vacation means finding ways to fill a few days for your getaway. But fear not, we’ve got you covered with Spring Break vacation ideas in the Greater Houston and Galveston areas that are made easy with a stay at Hilton Hotels.
- Saddle up at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo – Lasso your plans together for Houston’s signature event featuring a daily carnival, markets and auctions, bucking bull championship rodeo action, and stellar headlining concerts from Lizzo, Keith Urban, Gwen Stefani, and Brad Paisley, among others. And with easy light rail access just outside the gates, you can venture into Downtown, Midtown, and Montrose to uncover more of the city’s gems.
- Have fun in the sun in Galveston – Grab a room at Hilton Hotels along Seawall Boulevard, then head out to explore the Island as swimsuit season creeps back to the beach. Hop on rides at the Historic Pleasure Pier, shop through the beautiful Victorian architecture of the Strand District, enjoy an educational afternoon at Moody Gardens, and tour historic homes across Galveston or the harbor itself aboard the Seagull II passenger boat. Or, just head out and enjoy a day in the sand with waves crashing in.
- Explore the heart of Houston in the Museum District – With world-class institutions on every other corner, the Museum District is thriving with Houston’s must-see exhibitions and experiences, serene trails that wind through Hermann Park, and lovable animals big and small at Houston Zoo. With the light rail rolling through the district, visitors can spread out in the city and enjoy bustling Downtown bars, culinary marvels in Midtown, and the quirky Westheimer Curve in Montrose for some of Houston’s best shopping, dining, and nightlife.
- Get back to nature in Greater Houston – With Hilton Hotels located in Conroe, The Woodlands, Sugar Land, and Uptown, you’re never far from nature—even if that’s hard to believe. Book a multi-day stay north of Houston and enjoy the natural beauty of Lake Conroe and the nearby Sam Houston National Forest. Or, spend the day south of Houston in Brazos Bend State Park before heading back to the hotel in Sugar Land. If venturing away from the comforts of high-end retail sounds a bit adventurous, then head out from your hotel room in the Galleria/Uptown neighborhood and dive into nearby Memorial Park and the Houston Arboretum, and be back for an upscale dinner by dark.
- Be safe on Saint Patrick’s Day – With Spring Break in full swing, there’s one massive celebration that falls in the middle of the week. From the 61st Annual Houston St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Downtown on Saturday, March 14 to the seas of green meeting for Tuesday night fun in Irish pubs across the Greater Houston area, St. Patrick’s Day makes for one of the most lively events of the year. But if you’re planning to kick back and imbibe, then make the responsible decision and book a room at the Hilton Hotel nearest you.
