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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Monument Hill State Park and George Ranch Historical Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Houston: Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah) and Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site (in Anderson). Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, stroll through Houston Zoo, see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston, and steep yourself in history at Sam Houston Park.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Houston road trip planner .

In January, daily temperatures in Houston can reach 20°C, while at night they dip to 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
