When you hear Texas, you hear Houston. This iconic city lies in the South Western United States, and the metropolis is home to more than 2.3 million people. Houston’s boundaries reach all the way to Galveston Bay where millions of citizens and tourists enjoy fun in the water every year.
Inside the downtown area, citizens get to enjoy the acclaimed Theater District, which is known for the Houston Grand Opera that hosts hundreds of notable acts each year. In the Historic District of downtown, upscale restaurants line the streets, tucked away into the 19th-century architecture that any designer or history buff can admire.
Houstonians spend a lot of time outdoors, whether fishing the waters, surfing the shores, or hiking, biking, walking, and sightseeing around the area. Golf and other activities are very popular in the city, and indoor sports arenas have taken off too in recent years, offering everything from trampoline parks to rock climbing.
However, while Houston has many things to offer visitors and residents, perhaps what the city is best known for is its importance during the NASA moon landing in 1969. Today, the Space Center Houston is still bustling and continues to be the helm for much of NASA’s work in the stars above the region, and beyond.
The 672 square miles that make up the city house dozens of neighborhoods, but it’s easiest to break the area up into three sections: Houston Heights, Midtown, and Downtown. Estates, homes, and apartments are available in each area of the city and visitors will find that every neighborhood has its feel to it.
Like many major cities, Houston is home to a diverse population and various cultures that blend to make a beautiful community. Whether you are looking to move in or just planning to join the ranks of some 17.5 million people who visit every year, Houston is a beautiful place to stay.
