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.
Let the collections at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and Space Center Houston capture your imagination. Visiting Hermann Park and Houston Zoo will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Houston: Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah) and Battleship Texas State Historic Site (in La Porte). Next up on the itinerary: explore the galleries of Cockrell Butterfly Center, get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, sample the tasty concoctions at Saint Arnold Brewing Company, and examine the collection at Houston Museum District.
