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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like 1892 Bishop's Palace and Moody Mansion. Space Center Houston and National Museum of Funeral History will appeal to museum buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site (in Washington), Fire Museum of Texas (in Beaumont) and Orange (Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center & Blue Elbow Swamp). Spend the 16th (Wed) exploring nature at Big Thicket National Preserve. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at The Menil Collection, get engrossed in the history at George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, have fun and explore at Children's Museum of Houston, and immerse yourself in nature at Brazos Bend State Park.
