Bayou City

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.
On the 27th (Fri), engage your brain at Cockrell Butterfly Center, then get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and then explore the world behind art at The Menil Collection. On the 28th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: examine the collection at Space Center Houston and then appreciate the extensive heritage of The Seawall.

For traveler tips, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Houston day trip planner.

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Houston. Expect a daytime high around 73°F in November, and nighttime lows around 56°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) so you can drive to Austin.
