There are plenty of opportunities for education and enrichment in Houston

Houston is the home of the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center. It's the home of America's astronaut corps, and the place where they — and many international astronauts — get trained to go to space. It's a significant research center and employer, as well as housing Mission Control for manned spaceflight expeditions.

We have world-class museums and cultural landmarks

The city is filled with unique, world-class museums and cultural landmarks. There are 19 total museums in a 1.5 mile radius that make up the Houston Museum District. Houston's Museum of Fine Arts is among the largest museums in the U.S., and one of the best collections of American decorative art and furniture in the house of a former trustee, along with 14 acres of formal gardens. Mark Rothko spent three years creating the works of art that inhabit The Rothko Chapel, which he also helped design.

Houston – The Best City

Houston has the third lowest overall cost of living among the nation’s 20 most populous metropolitan areas*

We have home-teams worth cheering for and outdoor spaces to fuel your adventures

The Texans, Rockets, Astros and Dynamo are all winners. Most recently, The Astros competed in the 2021 World Series; and The Texans have won five AFC South championships in 2012, 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019.

Houston has more parks than any other top-10 metropolitan area — with 50,632 acres in total

That puts it third in the U.S. in acreage per — capita behind only San Diego and Dallas. The city's been investing a large amount in building out this space, particularly building out the space surrounding the Buffalo Bayou, Houston's main waterway.

Houston has one of the largest rodeos in the world

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, held annually in NRG Stadium, attracts millions of attendees. The annual event features over 20,000 livestock exhibits; every fried food under the sun, from fried Oreos to deep-fried Nutella; and nightly concerts. The rodeo has drawn some of the world's biggest recording artists, including Beyoncé, blink-182, Selena Gomez, NCT 127, Fifth Harmony, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Selena, Kiss, Kelly Clarkson, The Chicks, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Justin Bieber, REO Speedwagon, Brooks & Dunn, George Strait, Janet Jackson, Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Kenny Chesney, Bon Jovi, ZZ Top, John Legend, Taylor Swift, Jonas Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd, among others.

The Texas Medical Center is the largest single employer in Houston, and the largest medical center in the world, with 21 hospitals, 8 academic and research institutions, and 50 total related organizations, all not-for-profit. The complex is larger than downtown Dallas.
