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.
On the 15th (Sat), get engrossed in the history at Holocaust Museum Houston and then let the kids burn off some steam at Discovery Green. On the 16th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: stroll through Water Wall, admire the masterpieces at The Menil Collection, and then have fun and explore at Children's Museum of Houston.
