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.
Kick off your visit on the 24th (Fri): engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, look for all kinds of wild species at Cockrell Butterfly Center, and then examine the collection at Houston Museum District.

Plan my Houston trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to Houston. In August, daytime highs in Houston are 95°F, while nighttime lows are 77°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Columbus.

More than just one of the nation's top business centers, Columbus is a mixture of many different parts of America, situated at the spot where the so-called "Bible Belt" meets the varied cultures of the Great Plains and Appalachia.
On the 25th (Sat), make a trip to Rockhouse, explore the striking landscape at Cantwell Cliffs, and then take a stroll through Short North Arts District. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: identify plant and animal life at Wahkeena Nature Preserve and then kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

To find other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, read our Columbus trip maker tool .

Traveling by flight from Houston to Columbus takes 5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a bus. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time (CST) to Eastern Standard Time (EST), which is usually a 1 hour difference. Traveling from Houston in August, expect Columbus to be slightly colder, temps between 84°F and 64°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
