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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Texas Prison Museum and Bonfire Memorial. Appreciate the collections at Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens and The Houston Museum of Natural Science. Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Washington-on-the-Brazos (in Washington), Big Thicket National Preserve (in Kountze) and Beaumont (Gator Country, McFaddin-Ward House Museum, & more). The adventure continues: learn about winemaking at Messina Hof Winery, explore the different monuments and memorials at Glenwood Cemetery, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Mary's Church High Hill, and explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

To find more things to do, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Houston trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 92°F in June, and nighttime lows around 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
