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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Space Center Houston and Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site and George Ranch Historical Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Monument Hill State Park (in La Grange), Washington-on-the-Brazos (in Washington) and George Bush Presidential Library and Museum (in College Station). There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, contemplate the long history of Sam Houston Park, have fun and explore at Children's Museum of Houston, and don't miss a visit to Water Wall.

If you are flying in from Belgium, the closest major airports are George Bush Intercontinental Houston Airport and William P Hobby Airport. In October in Houston, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 21°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
