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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Farmers Market at Imperial Sugar Land (in Sugar Land), Galveston (Bishop's Palace, The Strand, & more) and Dickinson Historical Society Depot Museum (in Dickinson). There's lots more to do: get to know the resident critters at Houston Zoo, admire the sheer force of Water Wall, stroll around Smither Park, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

For where to stay, ratings, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Houston online tour planner .

McAllen to Houston is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Expect little chillier weather when traveling from McAllen in January: highs in Houston hover around 63°F, while lows dip to 46°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) to allow time to travel to Agra.
