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.
Appreciate the collections at Space Center Houston and San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site. Escape the urban bustle at Cockrell Butterfly Center and Water Wall. Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Washington-on-the-Brazos (in Washington) and Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah). The adventure continues: get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, stroll the grounds of Glenwood Cemetery, and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
