Houston

Bayou City

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.
Kick off your visit on the 22nd (Thu): explore the different monuments and memorials at Glenwood Cemetery, then kick back and relax at Pine Gully Park, and then make a splash at Pirates Bay Water Park. Keep things going the next day: stroll through Hermann Park and then take a stroll through Chinatown.

For photos, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Houston visit planner.

New York City

Big Apple

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get a sense of the local culture at Times Square and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Attractions like Central Park and 9/11 Memorial make great kid-friendly stops. Venture out of the city with trips to Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Philadelphia (Benjamin Franklin Museum, Society Hill, &more). The adventure continues: pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral, steep yourself in history at Ellis Island, and make a trip to Empire State Building.

To find where to stay, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the New York City online driving holiday planner.
