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.
Start off your visit on the 7th (Mon): enjoy breathtaking views from Williams Tower. Keep things going the next day: admire the sheer force of Water Wall, then engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and then admire all the interesting features of Minute Maid Park.

To see where to stay, maps, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Houston trip planner .
