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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Washington-on-the-Brazos and Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens. Family-friendly places like Cockrell Butterfly Center and Smith Oaks Bird Sanctuary will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting Houston side-trips: Armand Bayou Nature Center (in Pasadena), Boy Scouts Wood Sanctuary (in High Island) and Texas Wolfdog Project (in Montgomery). Next up on the itinerary: get in on the family fun at Kemah Boardwalk, take in the history at San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site, explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
