Houston is the fourth-most populated city in the United States and is among one of the top 10 most expansive cities as well. As a port city, the economy is broad industrial base, oilfield equipment manufacturing, and energy. Considered a global city, Houston is often called the “Bayou City,” just 88 miles west of Louisiana, or “Space City,” as it is home to NASA’s Johnson Space Center. Houston is located on the gulf coastal plane, and does experience flooding and the rare tornado. Winters are most often mild and summers are typically quite humid. Air pollution is a common issue with the city’s excessive ozone levels, so do consider that if you have asthma or other breathing conditions. The city itself is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the U.S. due to a strong job market and its role as a hub for refugee resettlement. Major annual events celebrate this diversity, and Houston’s restaurant scene also provides a wide array of options. The downtown area boasts America’s second-largest concentration of theater seaters in a downtown area as well as one of the highest concentration of green spaces. Be sure to check out the annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo if you happen to be in town in early March, one of the largest rodeos in the world!
