Houston, Texas, the fourth most populous city in the United States, is a sprawling metropolis covering more than 634 square miles. The vast amount of space offers plenty of things to do while on a family vacation in Houston. While some criticize the city for its lack of green space, there is plenty to be found if you know where to look. Houston's summer heat and humidity are no secret, so if your visit falls between May and September, schedule outdoor activities early in the day and leave plenty of time for breaks.
