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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Big Thicket National Preserve and Monument Hill & Kreische Brewery State Historic Site. Your inner history buff will appreciate Washington-on-the-Brazos and George Ranch Historical Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Surfside Beach (in Surfside Beach), St Francis Wolf Sanctuary (in Montgomery) and Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site (in Anderson). There's still lots to do: do a tasting at Messina Hof Winery, immerse yourself in nature at Brazos Bend State Park, explore the different monuments and memorials at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, and explore the world behind art at Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens.

For maps, ratings, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Houston trip itinerary planning tool .

In November, daytime highs in Houston are 73°F, while nighttime lows are 56°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
