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.
Step out of the city life by going to Water Wall and Arthur Storey Park. Head to Houston Premium Outlets and LaCenterra at Cinco Ranchfor plenty of shopping. Get out of town with these interesting Houston side-trips: Old Town Spring (in Spring) and Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site (in Washington). And it doesn't end there: explore the galleries of Cockrell Butterfly Center, get a taste of the local shopping with Memorial City Mall, stroll around Memorial Park, and steep yourself in history at Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern.

For other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Houston visit site.

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Houston. In February, daytime highs in Houston are 69°F, while nighttime lows are 52°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) to allow time to take a bus to San Antonio.

As the state’s second largest city, San Antonio embodies Texas’ rich cultural heritage while maintaining the Old West charm of an oil town.

Keep things going the next day: do a tasting at Grape Creek Vineyards on Main, then sample the fine beverages at Garrison Brothers Distillery, and then shop like a local with The Shops at La Cantera.
