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 a short trip to Kemah Boardwalk in Kemah (about 42 minutes away). There's still lots to do: get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, tee off at Hermann Park, stroll the grounds of Glenwood Cemetery, and admire the masterpieces at The Menil Collection.

For where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Houston trip maker tool .

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Houston. In November in Houston, expect temperatures between 73°F during the day and 56°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Sat) to allow time to travel to Sandestin.
