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 23rd (Tue): engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, admire all the interesting features of Minute Maid Park, and then admire the landmark architecture of Christ Church Cathedral. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, then examine the collection at Space Center Houston, and then steep yourself in history at Cistern, Buffalo Bayou Park.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Houston trip simple and quick.
