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.
Kids will enjoy Moody Gardens and Houston Zoo. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Houston: Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah) and Galveston (The Strand, The Seawall, &more). Next up on the itinerary: engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, examine the collection at Space Center Houston, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.
