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.
Visiting Surfside Beach and Water Wall will get you outdoors. Get some historical perspective at San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site and Glenwood Cemetery. Explore Houston's surroundings by going to Old Town Spring (in Spring), Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah) and Houston Premium Outlets (in Cypress). There's much more to do: stroll through Houston Zoo, have fun and explore at Children's Museum of Houston, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

In May in Houston, expect temperatures between 84°F during the day and 68°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
