Nearly every other month, though, is pleasant in the area, offering great Houston travel arrangements during the fall, winter, and spring. Hotel rates are typically the lowest during the winter, since the cooler months are a slow tourism season in the city. Most of the annual events are held during spring, including the Bayou City Cajun Fest, the Houston Spanish & Flamenco Festival, Picnic in the Park, and the Preakness Stakes.
