Houston — 1 night

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.
Start off your visit on the 4th (Mon): examine the collection at Space Center Houston, then browse the exhibits of Cockrell Butterfly Center, and then test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

Fly from Chicago to Houston in 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or do a combination of train and bus. When traveling from Chicago in April, plan for somewhat warmer days and warmer nights in Houston: temperatures range from 79°F by day to 62°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Mon) to allow enough time to fly back home.
