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 20th (Tue): have some family-friendly fun at Escape Hunt, then see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston, and then find something for the whole family at Kemah Boardwalk. Here are some ideas for day two: get to know the fascinating history of The Seawall, examine the collection at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and then make a trip to Water Wall.

For reviews, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Houston travel route planner.
