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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Houston: Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah), Ronin Farm (in Bryan) and Sri Meenakshi Devasthanam (in Pearland). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston, have fun and explore at Children's Museum of Houston, explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science.

For reviews, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Houston trip itinerary tool .

Maine's biggest and perhaps most vibrant city, Portland was established as a fishing village in 1633 and grew to become New England's largest port.
Get out of town with these interesting Portland side-trips: Boston (Granary Burying Ground, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, & more), Tributary Brewing (in Kittery) and Ogunquit (Marginal Way Walkway & Ogunquit Beach). And it doesn't end there: explore and take pictures at Kancamagus Highway, sample the tasty concoctions at Allagash Brewery, take in nature's colorful creations at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, and get engrossed in the history at Salem Witch Museum.
