Welcome to Houston—where everything really is bigger. As the largest city in Texas, Houston is a community of over 2.1 million diverse individuals, and its culture is just as varied and interesting. Nicknamed the “Space City” after it became the seat of NASA’s space program, Houston also has a rich historical background, sports and entertainment options, arts movements, and cultural celebrations. There’s a reason so many call Houston home, and it continues to foster ever-growing commerce, tourism, and communities.
The easiest way to get around town in Houston is with a car, but that does not mean you have to travel alone. Check out all the local Park and Rides and team up with fellow commuters to save on gas and gain some company. Of course there is public transportation too, and the METRO of Harris County provides bus and rail services that can take you Uptown, Downtown, and right through the Museum District with ease.
