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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Houston Zoo and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Battleship Texas State Historic Site (in La Porte), The Woodlands Town Center (in The Woodlands) and Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Downtown Aquarium, engage your brain at Cockrell Butterfly Center, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.

To see more things to do, photos, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Houston trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around °F in June, and nighttime lows around °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
