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.

Explore Houston's surroundings by going to Armand Bayou Nature Center (in Pasadena), Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah) and Morton Cemetery (in Richmond). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston, engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, get engrossed in the history at Holocaust Museum Houston, and admire the sheer force of Water Wall.
