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.
You've now added Houston Zoo to your itinerary. For shopping fun, head to Cockrell Butterfly Center or Space Center Houston. Get outdoors at Surfside Beach and Crocodile Encounter. Venture out of the city with trips to Lake Jackson (Gulf Prairie Presbyterian Church & Cemetery & Gulf Coast Bird Observatory), League City (Dr. Ned & Fay Dudney Nature Center & West Bay Common School Museum) and Quintana (Quintana Neotropical Bird Sanctuary & Quintana Beach). And it doesn't end there: get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, take in the spiritual surroundings of Teo-Chew Temple, steep yourself in history at Monument Hill & Kreische Brewery State Historic Site, and get engrossed in the history at Varner-Hogg Plantation State Historic Site.

To see other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Houston day trip planning app .

In May, daily temperatures in Houston can reach 84°F, while at night they dip to 68°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
