Moving takes a toll on you, not only physically, mentally but also financially (more on this coming soon). So, naturally, after moving to a different state in the middle of the summer, there was no $$$ to take a big summer vacation.
So, how do you #treatyourself after work and on the weekends, without leaving Houston? I’ve been doing the research for the past two months and trust me, there are plenty of ways to doing so!
Take A Staycation in Springwoods Village
The Houston CityPlace Marriott at Springwoods Village is located in the heart of CityPlace, just a few minutes from The Woodlands, and fun attractions like the Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Splashtown and TGR Exotics Wildlife Park.
With luxurious amenities, the best black out curtains we’ve ever seen, a pool, and great views, you’ll feel extra rejuvenated after spending a night here. Treat yourself to M Club rooms and you will have exclusive access to the M Club Lounge – the lounge features complimentary snacks, daily breakfast and free WiFi.
The hotel also offers a complimentary area shuttle to anywhere within 5 miles if you want to grab a meal or drinks outside of the hotel!
Have an Indoor Picnic
I’m a big fan of picnics, and any excuse to eat and drink in a cute setting for that matter. When I heard about Picnics in the City, I knew I had to try one of these luxury picnics but I worried about the Texas summer heat, mosquitoes, etc. The badass babe owner, Martha Such, suggested I have my picnic in the comfort of my own home! She took care of the set up, the food, the rosé and the clean up afterwards.
It was a really magical experience because for a bit I even forgot I was inside my own home. Prices vary for Picnics in the City but trust me, they are worth every penny. Book yours now here.
Book an Acupuncture or Cupping Therapy Appointment
Phoenix Rising Acupuncture is Houston’s only AcuHouse; a place for healing, transformation, and renewal. This place is a fabulous holistic, nontoxic place to find peace and unwind from stress! As soon as you walk through their little pink door, you are transported to an immediate sense of calmness and zen vibes.
When I visited Phoenix Rising Acupuncture for their grand opening in River Oaks, I opted for a session of cupping therapy for my chronic right shoulder pain. The owner, Lori Early and her staff were so sweet and informative, guiding me every step of the way so I could understand what cupping does and how it works. I left Phoenix Rising Acupuncture feeling completely relaxed and my shoulder felt amazing.
Visit Candytopia with your Babes
There’s nothing better than finding a ‘grammable spot, right? Well there is because Candytopia features over a dozen rooms and environments with larger-than-life interactive art installations and full sensory experiences where you’ll want to take a million photos at!
Stay out of the heat and dive into the magical world of Candytopia! The Houston installation features a marshmallow pit; an underwater-themed wonderland filled with candy covered sea creatures; a rainbow-filled room with flying unicorn pigs, confetti explosions galore and more!
They are expected to sell out so grab your tickets now!
There is so much to do in Houston; it’s the 4th largest city in America after all! So, if traveling in the next few months is not in the cards for you, fear not – any of these activities will feel like a mini vacation in your own city!
