I am often approached with this question: "I'll be in [fill in the city] for two days. What should I see while I am there?"
In response, I feature 2-day itineraries to a variety of cities here at Peregrine Online. At the end of each month, a new post introduces the main sites to visit in a city if you only have two days there.
Houston may not be the place most people think of as a top tourist destination. Still, there is plenty to do in the city, and two days there can be well-spent. So, today we'll see how to hit the highlights in Houston in a 2-day timeframe.
Night: if there's a professional sporting event to attend, do that; if not, dinner at Kemah Boardwalk
Museum of Natural Science, shopping at the Galleria
Alternate sites: for real shoppers, hit the outlet mall in Cypress
If you have a 3rd day: a day at the beach and/or on the Strand in Galveston
For kids: Galveston beach and ferry trip, the Houston Zoo
