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.
Houston is known for museums, nightlife, childrens museums, zoos & aquariums, and fun & games. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: examine the collection at Space Center Houston, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, admire the sheer force of Water Wall, and explore and take pictures at Minute Maid Park.

For ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Houston sightseeing planner.

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Houston. October in Houston sees daily highs of 84°F and lows of 65°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 5th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Baltimore.

A major center for tourism and travel, Baltimore is famous as the city where amateur poet Francis Scott Key wrote the lyrics for the United States' national anthem.

The adventure continues: try your luck at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, explore and take pictures at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, contemplate the waterfront views at Inner Harbor, and explore the world behind art at The Walters Art Museum.
