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 25th (Thu): get your game on at The Escape Game Houston, thensee the interesting displays at Space Center Houston, and then find something for the whole family at Kemah Boardwalk. On the 26th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: admire the sheer force of Water Wall and then get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science.

For more things to do, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, read our Houston online day trip planner.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from your home destination to Houston. In June, plan for daily highs up to 92°F, and evening lows to 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Philadelphia.

Steeped in cultural and historical heritage, Philadelphia is known as the birthplace of U.S.
Change things up with a short trip to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square (about 52 minutes away).
