Bayou City

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. A growing favorite with foodies from around the globe, Houston is widely considered one of the most restaurant-oriented cities in America, supporting a thriving scene of ethnic eateries. Founded in 1836 on the banks of Buffalo Bayou (which gave way to the nickname "The Bayou City"), Houston quickly became a major port and railroad junction, attracting burgeoning businesses from around the country. In addition to a sprawling space center, the city also boasts the largest concentration of health care and research institutions in the world. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Houston trip itinerary using our United States online tour itinerary planner.
