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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Quintana (Quintana Neotropical Bird Sanctuary & Quintana Beach), Kyle Field (in College Station) and Lake Jackson (Gulf Prairie Presbyterian Church & Cemetery, Lake Jackson Historical Museum, & more). There's lots more to do: engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, examine the collection at Battleship Texas State Historic Site, do a tasting at Whistling Duck Winery, and admire all the interesting features of Rice University Campus.

Find out how to plan Houston trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are George Bush Intercontinental Houston Airport and William P Hobby Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Houston can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
