Step out of Dallas to go to Fort Worth and see Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, which is approximately 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens, admire all the interesting features of AT&T Stadium, meet the residents at Dallas World Aquarium, and see the interesting displays at The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza.

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 14th (Fri): test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, see the interesting displays at Houston Museum District, and then see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston. On the 15th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: admire all the interesting features of Minute Maid Park, engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and then admire the sheer force of Water Wall.

To see maps, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Houston day trip site .

You can fly from Dallas to Houston in 4 hours. Other options are to take a bus; or drive. Expect a daytime high around 90°F in September, and nighttime lows around 75°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
