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 in touch with nature at Big Thicket National Preserve and Surfside Beach. You'll discover tucked-away gems like McFaddin-Ward House Museum and Glenwood Cemetery. Explore Houston's surroundings by going to Houston Premium Outlets (in Cypress), Spindletop - Gladys City Boomtown Museum (in Beaumont) and Lake Jackson Historical Museum (in Lake Jackson). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, take in the spiritual surroundings of Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, view the masterpieces at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, and get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Funeral History.

For photos, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Houston tour itinerary maker website .

Expect a daytime high around 95°F in July, and nighttime lows around 77°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
