Houston is a large metropolis in Texas, extending to Galveston Bay. It’s closely linked with the Space Center Houston, the coastal visitor center at NASA’s astronaut training and flight control complex. The city’s relatively compact Downtown includes the Theater District, home to the renowned Houston Grand Opera, and the Historic District, with 19th-century architecture and upscale restaurants. Houston is the largest city in Texas and the 10th largest television DMA.
In 2014, twenty-six Fortune 500 companies call Houston home (ranked 3rd in US). Houston also has the largest Medical Center in the world with 57 institutions employing over 66,000 employees. Houston is a great place to live, work and raise a family.
Sports enthusiasts can easily attend games for several professional teams including the Houston Texans, Houston Rockets, Houston Astros, and Houston Dynamo.
Houstonians are entertained year round with professional resident companies in ballet, opera, symphony and theater. The Houston Museum District is the country's fourth largest and visitors can enjoy an entire weekend visiting eighteen cultural centers located in close proximity. Houston is a community of ethnically diverse neighborhoods and a place we're proud to call home.
