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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Washington-on-the-Brazos and Messina Hof Winery. Visit Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens and Saint Anthony Cathedral Basilica for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Copper Shade Tree Gallery (in Round Top), Big Thicket National Preserve (in Kountze) and Old Town Spring (in Spring). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Texas Prison Museum, look for all kinds of wild species at Smith Oaks Bird Sanctuary, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and admire the majestic nature at Huntsville State Park.

If you are flying in from Puerto Rico, the closest major airports are George Bush Intercontinental Houston Airport and William P Hobby Airport. In April, daily temperatures in Houston can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 19°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
