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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Cockrell Butterfly Center and San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site. Appreciate the collections at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and The Houston Museum of Natural Science. Get out of town with these interesting Houston side-trips: Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah) and Surfside Beach (in Surfside Beach). There's much more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Houston Zoo, admire the natural beauty at Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rothko Chapel, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Hermann Park.

To find other places to visit, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Houston online trip maker .

In June, daytime highs in Houston are 92°F, while nighttime lows are 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
