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 7th (Sun): get your game on at Escape Hunt and then see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston.

Plan my trip to Houston with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

You can fly from Chicago to Houston in 5.5 hours. Other options are to do a combination of subway, bus, and flight; or drive. In July, Houston is a bit warmer than Chicago - with highs of 95°F and lows of 77°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
