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.
Monument Hill State Park and Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site will appeal to history buffs. Explore Houston's surroundings by going to Haak Vineyards & Winery Inc (in Santa Fe), George Ranch Historical Park (in Richmond) and Houston Premium Outlets (in Cypress). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, take in nature's colorful creations at Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, stroll through Sam Houston Park, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Downtown Aquarium.

To see photos, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Houston itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are George Bush Intercontinental Houston Airport and William P Hobby Airport. In February, daytime highs in Houston are 22°C, while nighttime lows are 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
