Houston
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.
Relax by the water at Surfside Beach and Porretto Beach. Step off the beaten path and head to Saint Arnold Brewing Company and Karbach Brewing. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Houston: Crystal Beach (in Port Bolivar), La Porte (San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site & Sylvan Beach Park) and Copper Shade Tree Gallery (in Round Top). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 6th (Sun) at Splashway Waterpark. Spend the 16th (Wed) exploring nature at Big Thicket National Preserve. And it doesn't end there: shop like a local with Memorial City Mall, see the interesting displays at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, sample the fine beverages at Railean Rum Distillery, and take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Funeral History.
