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 a sense of the local culture at Messina Hof Winery and Space Center Houston. Escape the urban bustle at Sylvan Beach Park and Jesse H. Jones Park and Nature Reserve. Get out of town with these interesting Houston side-trips: George Bush Presidential Library and Museum (in College Station), Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah) and Pearland Town Center (in Pearland). There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at St Francis Wolf Sanctuary, buy something for everyone on your list at LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch, shop like a local with Memorial City Mall, and test your team's savvy at The Escape Game Houston.
