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.
For shopping fun, head to Houston Premium Outlets or Old Town Spring. Glenwood Cemetery and Downtown Historic District Market Square will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Houston: Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah), Surfside Beach (in Surfside Beach) and San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site (in La Porte). Spend the 17th (Wed) exploring nature at Big Thicket National Preserve. Next up on the itinerary: admire all the interesting features of Minute Maid Park, play a few rounds at Hermann Park, engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and identify plant and animal life at St Francis Wolf Sanctuary.

Expect a daytime high around 95°F in July, and nighttime lows around 77°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
