Facts About Houston You Should Know!
*Houston, Texas, the fourth largest city in the U.S. by population, has no zoning code. It's the only major city that doesn't have one. It has about 2.4 million people.
*Most people not from Texas have a very stereotypical view of our town, which is usually off base! Yes there are people with concealed weapons permits...but also home to one of the largest arts/symphony/museum districts in the downtown area.
*Yes oil/gas/chemicals are a huge part of the economy...but so is healthcare and the medical center complex – known as the Texas Medical Center.
*Some other surprising/relatively unknown facts...the JPMorgan Chase tower, the tallest building in town, has a free observation deck on the 60th floor where you can see the entire downtown area.
*The Tunnel System - connects the entire downtown area over 25 blocks. You can access almost the entire downtown district without going outside (and you wouldn't want to in the 90's heat we have all summer!)
*In an effort to encourage school-age children to eat breakfast, all Houston-area (Harris County and some other Independent Schools Districts) schools offer a free breakfast, regardless of need.
*Downtown Aquarium - there is a small amusement park with ferris wheel and train, right inside downtown.
*Grills - were invented in Houston by local entrepreneur/rapper Paul Wall. (The ones Ryan Lochte -Olympic Swimmer - wears on his teeth, not the backyard cookers! :)
*George Bush Sr. lives here and frequently visits Star Pizza (local restaurant).
*Art Car Parade - an amazing assortment of "art cars" annual event where local artists make cars look like underwater fish, giant potatoes, etc.
*There are more Fortune 500 companies headquartered in Houston than there are in the entire state of Virginia or New Jersey or Pennsylvania.
*According to Wikipedia, Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County has 1,216 buses in their fleet plus some light rail, and daily ridership of 278,900 for 99,288,400 riders per year
According to Houston Streetcars in 1945, the annual ridership of streetcars and jitney buses (buses that sort of roamed an area without a fixed route) was 130 million.
In 1945 there were between 384,514 (1940 census) and 596,163 (1950 census) people living in Houston, versus the 2.4+ million who live there today.
*Great food, both restaurant and supermarket. That's unexpected in Texas, the rest of which is a food desert. Galleria district and the Asian district to the west but throughout all of Houston and it’s suburban areas such as the Clear Lake, the Kemah Waterfront, The Woodlands and many other areas.

Houston has about four different “downtowns” so to speak. Downtown proper, The Energy Corridor, The Galleria, and the Medical Center.
*Houstonians eat out more than any other U.S. City.
*Texas Medical Center - largest in the world (3x larger than the next largest).
*If you love rain, humidity green forests and a very large spread out city and warmer winter weather... Houston is a great place with opportunities only bounded by your imagination. If you like dryer climates, it may not suit that preference.
