When you think of Texas the first city that comes to mind is Dallas. The land of the cowboy can make a wonderful affordable family vacation. We love the Texan attitude of big and brave and strong. We have visited Dallas many times to see family and each time we find something new to explore.
Travel-Mommy: Family trip to the Houston Rodeo
So you haven’t really experienced Texas until you hit a rodeo. A few years back, we enjoyed the Dallas rodeo but the one to hit is the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. This event truly makes memories of a lifetime for our families.
You can make the rodeo an inexpensive day outing or a fun overnite because there is so much to see and do. The award-winning event rides into town with a Parade and a cook off on the last weekend in February and then gallops thru mid-march. Given the dates, it makes for a perfect mini Spring Break vacation.
