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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site and St. Mary's Church High Hill. Escape the urban bustle at Cockrell Butterfly Center and Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. Get out of town with these interesting Houston side-trips: Washington-on-the-Brazos (in Washington), Sri Meenakshi Devasthanam (in Pearland) and Battleship Texas State Historic Site (in La Porte). Spend the 27th (Mon) exploring nature at Big Thicket National Preserve. Next up on the itinerary: meet the residents at Houston Zoo, explore and take pictures at Minute Maid Park, explore the different monuments and memorials at Glenwood Cemetery, and identify plant and animal life at Smith Oaks Bird Sanctuary.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are George Bush Intercontinental Houston Airport and William P Hobby Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in May, and nighttime lows around 23°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
