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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Houston: George Bush Presidential Library and Museum (in College Station), Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah) and Galveston (Bishop's Palace, The Strand, & more). And it doesn't end there: get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Houston Zoo, see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston, and explore and take pictures at Water Wall.

To find reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Houston vacation maker .

Expect a daytime high around 84°F in October, and nighttime lows around 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
