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 some cultural insight at San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site and Space Center Houston. Museum-lovers will get to explore Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens and Matagorda County Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Surfside Beach (Surfside Jetty Park & Surfside Beach), Big Thicket National Preserve (in Kountze) and Crocodile Encounter (in Angleton). There's lots more to do: find something for the whole family at Kemah Boardwalk, stop by Nana's Attic, and identify plant and animal life at Matagorda County Birding Nature Center.

For more things to do, maps, ratings, and tourist information, use the Houston trip website .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 95°F, and evening lows to 77°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
