NRG Stadium at NRG Park
The cavernous crown jewel of Houston’s arenas, NRG Stadium rests along the 610 Loop next to its sibling and one-time “Wonder of the World”, the Astrodome.
Whether the five-tiered arena is hosting the Houston Texans in the fall, three weeks of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in late winter, or one of the largest touring events in the nation (ranging from Monster Jam to Beyoncé), when you’ve got a ticket to NRG Stadium, you’re attending one of the year’s biggest events in the city of Houston.
With a capacity of over 70,000 seats, only the most high-profile events grace the stage under a retractable roof that occasionally transforms the stadium into an open-air arena. Live concerts are some of the most exciting events at NRG Stadium, with the ability to fit sprawling set designs and elaborate custom stages.
Near NRG Stadium
Hungry visitors to NRG Stadium have plenty of appetizing options from the popular restaurants that flank the nearby intersection of Old Spanish Trail, Kirby Drive, and Main Street, to the plethora of concession stands accessible within the main concourse.
Or, ahead of a major event, fans can explore many of Houston’s popular neighborhoods and their offerings from the MetroRail Red Line, which also provides a stop just outside the gates of the stadium.
Parking is typically $15 per vehicle at the official lots at NRG Park. Although it was cash only for a long time, after re-opening following COVID-19 shutdowns, the lots began accepting credit cards as well.
Along with its easy access and an alternative to the cash parking lots surrounding the stadium, the MetroRail offers a chance to visit Hermann Park and the Houston Zoo, the Museum District, Midtown, and Downtown—all within walking distance from a rail stop.
