Houston

— 11 nights

Bayou City

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 hidden gems such as Cockrell Butterfly Center and Memorial Park. Get in touch with nature at Surfside Beach and Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Houston: Railean Rum Distillery (in San Leon), Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center (in Orange) and La Porte (Sylvan Beach Depot Museum & Library & Sylvan Beach Park). Next up on the itinerary: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Saint Arnold Brewing Company, see the interesting displays at Houston Museum District, look for all kinds of wild species at Crocodile Encounter, and cross one thing off your bucket list with Skydive Spaceland Houston.

For traveler tips, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Houston itinerary planner.

In September in Houston, expect temperatures between 90°F during the day and 75°F at night.
