Houston

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.
You've now added George Ranch Historical Park to your itinerary. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Space Center Houston and The Houston Museum of Natural Science. Visiting Cockrell Butterfly Center and Water Wall will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Houston side-trips: Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah) and Old Fort Parker (in Groesbeck). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens.

To plan Houston vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Getting from Groesbeck to Houston by car takes about 2.5 hours. Expect somewhat warmer evenings in Houston when traveling from Groesbeck in May, with lows around 68°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Tue) early enough to drive to Galveston.
