A Closer Look at Houston, Texas 

The fourth most populous city in the country, Houston also ranks as the largest city in Texas by population. The region is known for the Texas Medical Center, which boasts the most preeminent collection of healthcare and research institutions in the world. Being the home of the NASA Johnson Space Center gives Houston the moniker of Space City. Of course, the petroleum industry is very important to the area economy.

Cultural opportunities for Houston residents abound, including great Tex-Mex food as well as a variety of music, theater, and art museums. This is highlighted by the city’s massively popular Theatre and Museum Districts.

Like most of the Lone Star State, professional sports are also very popular in Houston. The NFL’s Houston Texans, MLB’s Houston Astros, and the NBA’s Houston Rockets all provide an opportunity for a good time to local sports fans. Remember, a great high-speed Internet service lets customers watch their favorite team from home or on a mobile device.

The city also features a large number of parks and hiking trails suitable for outdoor activities. This is highlighted by Houston’s 337 parks and nearly 17,000 acres of additional green space. The close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico also provides enough fun to keep area residents active and healthy.

An important port city, Houston is also served by a multitude of air, automobile, and other transportation options. Three main interstate highways as well as other freeways and tollways help move automobile, bus, and truck traffic throughout the metro area. Two major airports – George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Hobby Airport – offer air travel. METRO transit provides bus and light rail service supporting commuter traffic throughout the area.

In short, Houston remains a great place to raise a family, go to school, or start a career.
