Houston

— 3 nights

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.
Change things up with a short trip to Moorhead's Blueberry Farm in Conroe (about 42 minutes away). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Space Center Houston, stroll around Buffalo Bayou Park, engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Funeral History.
