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.
Washington-on-the-Brazos and Copper Shade Tree Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore and learn at Texas Prison Museum and Sam Houston Memorial Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Houston: Messina Hof Winery (in Bryan), Smith Oaks Bird Sanctuary (in High Island) and Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge (in Anahuac). Spend the 20th (Wed) exploring nature at Big Thicket National Preserve. There's lots more to do: admire the majestic nature at Brazos Bend State Park, explore the world behind art at Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, revel in the low prices at Houston Premium Outlets, and look for gifts at Old Town Spring.
