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.
Explore Houston's surroundings by going to Galveston (Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, Moody Gardens, &more), Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah) and Pine Gully Park (in Seabrook). There's still lots to do: get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Lakewood Church, and have fun and explore at Children's Museum of Houston.

To find maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Houston trip itinerary maker app.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to Houston. In August, daytime highs in Houston are °F, while nighttime lows are °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Tue) to allow time to travel to Raleigh.
