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.
Washington-on-the-Brazos and Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site will appeal to history buffs. Do your shopping at Copper Shade Tree Gallery and Old Town Spring. Get out of town with these interesting Houston side-trips: Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge (in Anahuac), Montgomery (Texas Wolfdog Project & St Francis Wolf Sanctuary) and San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site (in La Porte). The adventure continues: stroll through Houston Zoo, explore the different monuments and memorials at Glenwood Cemetery, engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and look for all kinds of wild species at Cockrell Butterfly Center.

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major airports are George Bush Intercontinental Houston Airport and William P Hobby Airport. In March, daytime highs in Houston are 27°C, while nighttime lows are 16°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
