Bayou City

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Pine Gully Park (in Seabrook), Galveston (The Strand, Moody Gardens, &more) and Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah). There's lots more to do: get your game on at Escape Hunt, explore the different monuments and memorials at Glenwood Cemetery, engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston.

For maps, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Houston visit planner.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to Houston. Expect a daytime high around 79°F in April, and nighttime lows around 62°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Mon) to allow time to travel to Tampa.

Tampa

Big Guava

Tampa ranks among the country's most livable cities, attracting newcomers with its growing economy and status as a major port on the Gulf of Mexico.
When in Tampa, make a side trip to see Murielle Winery in Clearwater, approximately Clearwater away. There's lots more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, explore the world behind art at The Dali Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, and take in the pleasant sights at Tampa Riverwalk.

To find other places to visit, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Tampa trip planner.

You can fly from Houston to Tampa in 5.5 hours. Other options are to drive; or take a bus. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Houston to Tampa. While traveling from Houston, expect a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Tampa, ranging from highs of 85°F to lows of 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 29th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
