Houston

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.
Go for a jaunt from Houston to Kemah to see Kemah Boardwalk about 42 minutes away. There's much more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Houston Zoo, engage your brain at Cockrell Butterfly Center, see the interesting displays at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
