Houston

— 4 nights

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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like The Houston Museum of Natural Science and Children's Museum Houston. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Houston: Galveston (The Seawall, The Strand, &more) and Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Space Center Houston, get to know the resident critters at Houston Zoo, engage your brain at Cockrell Butterfly Center, and meet the residents at Downtown Aquarium.

To see other places to visit, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Houston trip planner.
