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 7th (Sun): have some family-friendly fun at Escape Hunt and then examine the collection at Space Center Houston.

To plan Houston vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Traveling by flight from Chicago to Houston takes 5.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and bus; or drive. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Chicago in July: high temperatures in Houston hover around 95°F and lows are around 77°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
