The Museum District

<p>Houston has no shortage of culture, and the Museum District is the heart of it all. The cornerstone of the district is the Museum of Fine Arts, which is one of the largest museums in the United States and has 64,000 items in its permanent collection. With nineteen museums in all, the Museum District also houses the Rothko Chapel, the Contemporary Arts Museum, the Holocaust Museum, and the Children's Museum. The Museum District is also home to smaller establishments, with a number of galleries and cultural establishments close to Rice University.</p>

Houston B-Cycle

<p>Don't mess with Texas. Keep the air clean and the highways clear by using a bike to get around the area. Houston residents get into the cycling mentality; more people commute to work by bike than anywhere else in Texas. The city is constantly expanding its on- and off-street bike trails, making transit by bike safer and easier. If you don't have a bicycle, don't worry! The city has established Houston B-Cycle, a bicycle-sharing system with many stations clustered mostly downtown, but expanding into other neighborhoods, too.</p>

Amazing Stadium

<p>Houston has a number of outstanding stadiums, and it makes sense&Ntilde;the city has a sports team in every major league except for the NHL. What really sets these stadiums apart from other arenas are the built-in features. Houston&Otilde;s football team, the Texans, had the first retractable-roof stadium; soon afterward, the Astros (Houston&Otilde;s American League baseball team) followed suit at the Minute Maid Stadium. Not to be outdone, the Houston Rockets, the National League team, installed the world&Otilde;s largest indoor screen at their stadium, the Toyota Center.</p>
