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 in touch with nature at Cockrell Butterfly Center and Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge. Appreciate the collections at Houston Zoo and The Houston Museum of Natural Science. Explore Houston's surroundings by going to Big Thicket National Preserve (in Kountze), Quintana (Quintana Beach & Quintana Neotropical Bird Sanctuary) and Lake Jackson (Gulf Prairie Presbyterian Church & Cemetery, Lake Jackson Historical Museum, & more). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston, take in the exciting artwork at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, identify plant and animal life at San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge, and take in the dramatic scenery at Water Wall.
