Just 30 minutes south of Houston, on the shimmering shores of Clear Lake, sits the largest full-service waterside resort and conference center in Southeast Texas.
It's South Shore Harbour Resort & Conference Center, and if you haven't visited already, then this summer is the ideal time to pack up, hop in the car, and head down to the country's third largest boating destination.
But water sports aren't the only draw, especially this time of year. You'll want to take advantage of South Shore Harbour Resort's summer "Baycation" package, which combines sunshine with savings and sets your family up for a lifetime of memories.
From now through September 30, you can reserve one of the 237 newly renovated rooms for only $149 a night, Sunday through Friday. Want to keep the vacay vibes going? Receive an extra 50 percent off an additional night, plus you'll get 50 percent off breakfast each morning (no matter how many people are in your party).
A thoughtful welcome amenity will be waiting upon arrival, filled with essentials like bottled water and snacks and goodies like a branded coffee mug and South Shore Harbour Resort koozie to take home as a souvenir.
Whether you're using South Shore Harbour Resort as your home base for visiting the nearby Kemah Boardwalk, NASA Johnson Space Center, Big League Dreams, or Beacon Lakes Golf Club, or you want to lounge around the resort, there's plenty to pique your interest.
Get out on Clear Lake itself with a two-hour, adults-only afternoon cruise courtesy of Houston Party Boats. Imagine sipping on beer and wine, nibbling on light bites, and indulging in a specialty drink or two from the cruise's sponsor. The cost is $45 per person plus tax, or $235 per person when paired with a room. Upcoming sponsors include Stoli vodka (August 3) and Makers Mark whiskey (September 7).
Prefer to stay poolside? That's understandable when the pool is 180 feet with a swim-up bar and also the site of South Shore Harbour Resort's summer concert series. From 7-10 pm on select Fridays, watch local bands take the stage while you float in the water. Upcoming acts include Hill Country Jane on August 2 and Mambo Jazz Kings on September 6.
And if you find yourself having too much fun, the solution is simple: just book another night.
