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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at St Francis Wolf Sanctuary and Glenwood Cemetery. 1940 Air Terminal Museum and National Museum of Funeral History are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Huntsville (Texas Prison Museum & Huntsville State Park), Washington-on-the-Brazos (in Washington) and Nana's Attic (in League City). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 22nd (Sat) at Splashway Waterpark. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston, take in nature's colorful creations at Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden, and get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science.

To find photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Houston day trip planning tool .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 92°F, and evening lows to 75°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
