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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Houston: Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah), Blue Bell Creameries (in Brenham) and George Bush Presidential Library and Museum (in College Station). Next up on the itinerary: get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, play a few rounds at Hermann Park, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and examine the collection at Space Center Houston.

To find more things to do, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, use the Houston road trip app .

Expect a daytime high around 90°F in September, and nighttime lows around 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
