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 Washington-on-the-Brazos and Brazos Bend State Park. Appreciate the collections at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and The Houston Museum of Natural Science. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Houston: Smith Oaks Bird Sanctuary (in High Island), Big Thicket National Preserve (in Kountze) and Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge (in Anahuac). There's still lots to do: learn about winemaking at Messina Hof Winery, enjoy the sand and surf at Surfside Beach, admire the majestic nature at Huntsville State Park, and take an in-depth tour of Columbia Historical Museum.

To see photos, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Houston journey maker website .

March in Houston sees daily highs of 74°F and lows of 57°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Mon) so you can travel back home.
