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.
Family-friendly places like The Houston Museum of Natural Science and Moody Gardens will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Galveston (The Seawall & The Strand) and Kemah (Kemah Boardwalk & Stingray Reef 215 Kipp Ave). There's much more to do: have some family-friendly fun at The Escape Game Houston, admire the sheer force of Water Wall, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Houston Zoo, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Teo-Chew Temple.
