Houston

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.
Kick off your visit on the 13th (Tue): examine the collection at Space Center Houston and then appreciate the extensive heritage of The Seawall. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: stroll the grounds of Glenwood Cemetery, engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and then admire the sheer force of Water Wall.

To find more things to do, maps, photos, and other tourist information, use the Houston road trip planning site.

In October, daily temperatures in Houston can reach 84°F, while at night they dip to 67°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) so you can travel back home.

Stretching over 965 km (600 mi) from Louisiana to the Mexican border, the Texas Gulf Coast is the state's main region for outdoor activity and vacation getaways. Dotted with funky seaside villages, expansive national parks, and beautiful golden sand beaches, the Gulf Coast is only an hour's drive from Houston, the state's cultural and commercial hub. For some historical sightseeing, wander through centuries-old downtown Galveston, or head to South Padre Island for a tropical holiday.
