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.
Take a break from the city and head to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Fishing Charters & Tours. Kids will enjoy Houston Zoo and Kemah Boardwalk. Venture out of the city with trips to Washington-on-the-Brazos (in Washington), Galveston (Moody Gardens, The Seawall, & more) and Brazos Bend State Park (in Needville). Next up on the itinerary: get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, identify plant and animal life at Cockrell Butterfly Center, get lost in a book at Lanier Theological Library, and take in the dramatic scenery at Water Wall.

To find photos, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Houston vacation planner.

In August, daytime highs in Houston are 95°F, while nighttime lows are 77°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
