Luxe RV Resort Opens Near NRG Just in Time for Rodeo Season

NOW OPEN IN Southwest Houston off Almeda Road is Jetstream RV Resort, a 165-space Class A recreational vehicle community.

The property spans 15 acres and includes amenities like a heated swimming pool, expansive clubhouse and lounge, outdoor kitchen and beer garden. For families, there’s an arcade room, playground, dog wash and shuffleboard courts, plus on-site laundry.

The location is between Downtown and the Med Center, and offers easy access to 288, the Beltway and 610. Just a few miles from NRG Park, Jetstream promises to be a popular option for those coming into town for the Rodeo, which just announced its 2023 musician lineup. (Highlights include mainstays like Chris Stapleton, Jason Aldean, Zac Brown Band, Cody Johnson, Brad Pailsey and Luke Bryan, plus Houston fave Bun B and old-school group New Kids on the Block.)

“Jetstream at The Med Center will provide an attractive alternative to hotel living for those who plan to spend a significant amount of time in Houston, whether as employees in the downtown area, as sightseers or both,” said Julie Davis, a VP of CityStreet Residential, which developed Jetstream, in a release. “It’s an inviting place they can go home to and enjoy in the evenings and on weekends, where their families can join them, and they can get to know their neighbors. We’re excited about the debut of this property and the successes of our other RV resorts.” CSRP operates Jetstream communities in Wharton, Waller, Pearland and Brownsville.

Having worked solo for several years, Clare in 2021 was awarded Houston Business Journal’s No. 2 Luxury Realtor® in Houston. Leigh, who has been working in marketing for the past decade, has always shared a passion for real estate and watched Clare successfully balance family and career.

Wiley's 'Judith and Holofernes'

THE ENERGY IN the foyer of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Caroline Wiess Law Building is quite lively, thanks to the installation of two provocative paintings, painted 400 years apart — one by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian 17th-century female artist, the other by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary, Nigerian-born queer Black artist. Each depicts the grisly climax in the Old Testament Book of Judith, in which the widow Judith decapitates the Assyrian general Holofernes, thus saving her besieged Jewish city of Betulia.
