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.
Take a break from the city and head to Skydive Spaceland Houston and White Oak Bayou Trail. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Houston: Brazos Bend State Park (in Needville) and Timber Creek Golf Club (in Friendswood). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston, explore the different monuments and memorials at Glenwood Cemetery, get to know the resident critters at Houston Zoo, and sample the tasty concoctions at Saint Arnold Brewing Company.
