Did you know that Houston,Texas is the 4th largest city in the country? It may even move to the 3rd spot at some point. Along with its growing population, the city boasts the world’s largest medical center and is linked to Nasa Space Center, Theater District, Houston Grand Opera, Historic District, Hermann Park and Houston Museum of Natural Science. Houston is a city known for being a melting pot. There are more than 145 different languages spoken in Houston, making it an incredible city of culture and diversity. With that diversity, there are over 10,000 different restaurants to choose from!!

Houston has one of the best culinary and shopping scenes in the country.
