Houston — 3 nights

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.
Get outdoors at Hermann Park and Cockrell Butterfly Center. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Houston Premium Outlets and Old Town Spring. Step out of Houston with an excursion to Kemah Boardwalk in Kemah--about 42 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, meet the residents at Houston Zoo, stroll around Smither Park, and shop like a local with Memorial City Mall.
