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.

There's much more to do: examine the collection at Space Center Houston, explore the different monuments and memorials at Glenwood Cemetery, meet the residents at Houston Zoo, and explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
