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.
Kick off your visit on the 24th (Fri): take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Funeral History, stroll the grounds of Glenwood Cemetery, then explore the galleries of Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Shri Swaminarayan Mandir.

To see maps, ratings, and tourist information, read Houston online tour itinerary planner .

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Houston. In May in Houston, expect temperatures between 84°F during the day and 68°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Durango.

Originally a frontier mining town, Durango is known today for its scenic setting, outdoor activities, and the 1880s steam-powered railway that takes visitors through sections of the mountains where roads don't reach.
Step out of the city life by going to The Colorado Trail and Mesa Verde National Park. Long House and Ouray County Museum will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Durango: Cascade Falls Park (in Ouray), Mesa Verde National Park (Square Tower House, Ruins Road, & more) and Towac Visitor Center (in Towaoc). And it doesn't end there: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, get curious at Powerhouse Science Center, have fun at Durango Community Recreation Center, and fly down the slopes at Purgatory Resort.

For other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Durango online route maker .
