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.

And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Space Center Houston, take in the dramatic scenery at Water Wall, stroll the grounds of Glenwood Cemetery, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Houston Zoo.
