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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site and Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens. Step out of the city life by going to Cockrell Butterfly Center and Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Bernhardt Winery (in Plantersville), Montgomery (St Francis Wolf Sanctuary, Cork This! Winery, &more) and Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land (in Sugar Land). There's lots more to do: do a tasting at Messina Hof Winery, get engrossed in the history at Sam Houston Memorial Museum, get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and explore the world behind art at Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden.
