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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Children's Museum of Houston and Cockrell Butterfly Center. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Hermann Park and Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens. Venture out of the city with trips to George Bush Presidential Library and Museum (in College Station) and Brazos Bend State Park (in Needville). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Houston Museum District, get engrossed in the history at Holocaust Museum Houston, get your game on at Escape Hunt, and admire the masterpieces at Art Car Museum.
