Houston

Houston
Although urban sprawl remains synonymous with Houston, most of the city's tourist attractions lie within the relatively small downtown area, surrounded by diverse neighborhoods housing the nation's biggest African-American, Asian-American, and Latino communities.
Popular historic sites such as Washington-on-the-Brazos and Bonfire Memorial are in your itinerary. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Surfside Beach and Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Houston: Froberg's Farm (in Alvin), Brazosport Museum-Natural Science (in Clute) and Star of the Republic Museum (in Washington). Spend the 7th (Fri) exploring nature at Big Thicket National Preserve. There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, get lost in a book at George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, see the interesting displays at Fire Museum of Texas, and take an in-depth tour of McFaddin-Ward House Museum.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are George Bush Intercontinental Houston Airport and William P Hobby Airport. Expect a daytime high around 43°C in August, and nighttime lows around 29°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
