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.
Family-friendly places like The Houston Museum of Natural Science and The Woodlands Children's Museum will thrill your kids. Discover out-of-the-way places like Houston Zoo and Sea Center Texas. Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Stingray Reef 215 Kipp Ave (in Kemah), Nana's Attic (in League City) and Froberg's Farm (in Alvin). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Santa's Wonderland, get a sense of history and politics at City Hall, walk around Mary Jo Peckham Park, and explore the galleries of Cockrell Butterfly Center.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Houston vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
