All eyes are on the Houston rodeo as Texans gear up for three whole weeks of incredible concerts, competitions, and carnival delights. Pearland has long been a hot spot for Houston rodeo activity, providing visitors with great shopping, award-winning restaurants, and trusted hotels just 20 minutes south of the famed NRG Park. Located along the Southwestern trail ride route and a short drive from the Reed Road park-and-ride, nearby Pearland hotels include the SpringHill Suites by Marriott and the Sleep Inn Suites, both of which offer complementary hot breakfast, and the Hilton Garden Inn off of highway 288. 

It’s time to rustle up the perfect outfit, corral your favorite people, and get the party started. 

Visit Pearland’s Queens of Bling 

Sprinkled across Pearland are plenty of unique and high-fashion boutiques carrying rodeo-ready tops, jackets, and accessories just waiting for you to come swipe them up, including And a Little Hope Boutique and Queen Bling Boutique which have unique, country-chic pieces begging to see those actions seats. Stock up on turquoise jewelry, tooled purses, and the cutest of boots before heading out to rodeo plaza, and sneak a peek at this spring’s Pearland Boutique Shop & Hop locations while you’re at it.

Get a Peek at the Trail Riders

Starting the weekend before the big event, more than 2,000 trail riders begin their journeys from across the state of Texas to the Houston area in observance of the 1952 ride from Brenham in promotion of the Houston rodeo. Two of those trails run close to Pearland; the Southwest and Southwestern routes. You can find their schedules on the official Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo website if you’d like to meet up with them and offer a friendly wave. 

Practice Your Two-Step

A perk of Pearland’s proximity to Houston is the amount of musical talent we see come through our venues. Hometown Sports Bar & Grill has put that talent, and our appetites, to work with rodeo-themed performances and dishes throughout the duration of the Texas-sized event. See the Junior Gordan Band, the Lauren Lee Band, Susan Hickman, and more on the Hometown stage and fuel up on festival favorites like chicken wings, fried pickles, and ice-cold beverages. You can find the full lineup at 

Pearland hotels know what visitors need this time of year; this isn’t their first rodeo. Check out our list of accommodations and the map of hotel locations to find the right spot for you.
