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.
Get outdoors at Big Thicket National Preserve and Texas Wolfdog Project. Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Kemah (Stingray Reef & Kemah Boardwalk), Kleb Woods Nature Preserve (in Tomball) and High Island (Smith Oaks Bird Sanctuary & Boy Scouts Wood Sanctuary). There's much more to do: meet the residents at Houston Zoo, look for all kinds of wild species at Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and explore the gorgeous colors at Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary.

To see where to stay, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, read our Houston trip planner .

In October in Houston, expect temperatures between 84°F during the day and 67°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
