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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Glenwood Cemetery and Washington-on-the-Brazos. Visiting Surfside Beach and Cockrell Butterfly Center will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Texas Wolfdog Project (in Montgomery), Armand Bayou Nature Center (in Pasadena) and San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site (in La Porte). And it doesn't end there: tee off at Hermann Park, get in on the family fun at Kemah Boardwalk, make a trip to Water Wall, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Lakewood Church.

Before you visit Houston, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Fairfax to Houston is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Fairfax to Houston due to the time zone difference. In June, Houston is a bit warmer than Fairfax - with highs of 92°F and lows of 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
