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 The Houston Museum of Natural Science. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Houston: Galveston (The Strand, The Seawall, &more) and Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah). Next up on the itinerary: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Houston Zoo, examine the collection at Space Center Houston, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.
