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 Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah), Galveston (The Seawall, The Strand, &more) and Pine Gully Park (in Seabrook). The adventure continues: examine the collection at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, have fun and explore at Children's Museum of Houston, stroll the grounds of Glenwood Cemetery, and explore the world behind art at The Menil Collection.
