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.
Kick off your visit on the 16th (Thu): play a few rounds at Hermann Park and then get curious at Houston Museum of Natural Science. Here are some ideas for day two: enjoy the sand and surf at Sylvan Beach Park.
