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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Houston Zoo and The Houston Museum of Natural Science. Get out of town with these interesting Houston side-trips: Galveston (The Strand, The Seawall, & more) and Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Space Center Houston and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.

For where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Houston online trip itinerary builder .

Longview to Houston is an approximately 3.5-hour car ride. You can also fly. In December, Houston is a bit warmer than Longview - with highs of 66°F and lows of 50°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Wed) so you can travel to Texarkana.
