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.
Start off your visit on the 29th (Thu): get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Funeral History, test your problem-solving skills at That Escape Place, and then experience rural life at Moorhead's Blueberry Farm. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take in the spiritual surroundings of Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Lakewood Church, and then stroll the grounds of Glenwood Cemetery.
