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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Houston: Sylvan Beach Park (in La Porte), Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site (in Anderson) and Constellation Field (in Sugar Land). There's still lots to do: get your game on at Escape Hunt, explore and take pictures at Kyle Field, take in the dramatic scenery at Water Wall, and admire the masterpieces at Art Car Museum.

For traveler tips, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, use the Houston attractions planner.
