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.

There's lots more to do: meet the residents at Houston Zoo, make a trip to Water Wall, get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
