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.
Start off your visit on the 18th (Tue): stroll the grounds of Glenwood Cemetery, then browse the exhibits of Rothko Chapel, and then take the plunge with Skydive Spaceland Houston. On the next day, look for all kinds of wild species at Armand Bayou Nature Center, then cool off at Pirates Bay Water Park, and then contemplate the long history of San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Houston vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Austin to Houston is an approximately 3-hour car ride. You can also take a bus; or fly. Expect a daytime high around 95°F in August, and nighttime lows around 77°F. You'll set off for Golden on the 20th (Thu).

Lowell of the West

Golden represents a former Wild West town that happens to be the burial place of William F.
Visit Dinosaur Ridge and Mother Cabrini Shrine for their historical value. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Golden Gate Canyon State Park and Lariat Loop National Scenic Byway. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Golden: Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & The Soap Shop) and Hidee Gold Mine (in Central City). There's much more to do: skim along the rocks with Golden Mountain Guides, explore the landscape on two wheels at Mount Falcon Castle Trail, and take an in-depth tour of Golden History Museum & Park.

To see photos, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Golden online tour planner.
