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.
When in Houston, make a side trip to see Kemah Boardwalk in Kemah, approximately 44 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Houston Zoo, admire all the interesting features of Minute Maid Park, get engrossed in the history at Holocaust Museum Houston, and stroll through Water Wall.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Houston trip generator.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are George Bush Intercontinental Houston Airport and William P Hobby Airport. In August in Houston, expect temperatures between 43°C during the day and 29°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
