Bayou City

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.
Kick off your visit on the 6th (Fri): admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rothko Chapel, then explore the world behind art at The Menil Collection, and finally take in the dramatic scenery at Water Wall. On your second day here, examine the collection at Space Center Houston.

For traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Houston sightseeing planner.

In November, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) so you can go by car to Galveston.
