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.
Appreciate the collections at Cockrell Butterfly Center and San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site. Get outdoors at Hermann Park and Houston Zoo. Step out of Houston to go to Surfside Beach and see Surfside Beach, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: examine the collection at Space Center Houston, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, take in nature's colorful creations at Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, and stroll the grounds of Glenwood Cemetery.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Houston trip itinerary website .

If you are flying in from Jordan, 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 22nd (Wed) so you can travel back home.
