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.
Houston is known for museums, nightlife, childrens museums, zoos & aquariums, and fun & games. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, get to know the resident critters at Houston Zoo, explore the different monuments and memorials at Glenwood Cemetery, and examine the collection at Houston Museum District.

For traveler tips, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Houston trip itinerary planning app .
