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.

Get some historical perspective at Glenwood Cemetery and Shri Swaminarayan Mandir. Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Sri Meenakshi Devasthanam (in Pearland), Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land (in Sugar Land) and Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah). Next up on the itinerary: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Houston Zoo, pause for some serene contemplation at Lakewood Church, take in nature's colorful creations at Hermann Park's Japanese Garden, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at The Chapel of St. Basil.
