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.
Kick off your visit on the 3rd (Tue): have some family-friendly fun at Escape Hunt, engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and then see the interesting displays at Houston Museum District.
