Bayou City

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 these side-trips from Houston: Galveston (The Seawall, 1892 Bishop's Palace, &more). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Space Center Houston, stroll the grounds of Glenwood Cemetery, explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, read Houston road trip planning site.

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Houston. In October, daily temperatures in Houston can reach 84°F, while at night they dip to 67°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Fri) so you can travel to Memphis.

Birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll

The largest city on the Mississippi River, Memphis bills itself as both the "Birthplace of Rock" and "Home of the Blues." With such a rich musical heritage, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Elvis Presley chose to live in Memphis during his later years.
Kick off your visit on the 30th (Fri): steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, see the interesting displays at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, and then don't miss a visit to Beale Street.

For ratings, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, read Memphis trip planner.
