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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge (in Freeport), Lake Jackson (Gulf Prairie Presbyterian Church & Cemetery, Lake Jackson Historical Museum, & more) and Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah). There's still lots to do: explore and take pictures at Minute Maid Park, go for a walk through Bonfire Memorial, examine the collection at Blue Bell Creameries, and kick back and relax at Surfside Beach.

For where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Houston travel itinerary planner .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 95°F, and evening lows to 77°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
