Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore and take pictures at Central Park, get a new perspective on nature at American Museum of Natural History, take in panoramic vistas at Empire State Building, and take some stellar pictures from Top of the Rock.

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Baytown Nature Center (in Baytown) and Sylvan Beach Park (in La Porte). There's still lots to do: test your team's savvy at Escape Hunt, tour the pleasant surroundings at Smither Park, enjoy some diversion at BBVA Compass Stadium, and tee off at Hermann Park.
