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 Houston's surroundings by going to Galveston (The Strand, Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig & Museum, & more) and Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah). There's still lots to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Houston Zoo, explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and stop by Cacao & Cardamon Chocolatiers.

For more things to do, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Houston trip maker site .

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major airports are George Bush Intercontinental Houston Airport and William P Hobby Airport. In December in Houston, expect temperatures between 22°C during the day and 11°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
