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.
Get out of town with these interesting Houston side-trips: Blue Bell Creameries (in Brenham), Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah) and Railean Rum Distillery (in San Leon). There's lots more to do: admire all the interesting features of Minute Maid Park, examine the collection at Battleship Texas State Historic Site, get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and have fun and explore at Children's Museum of Houston.

To see photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Houston tour itinerary planner .
