About Houston

Many people think of boots, plaid shirts, cowboy hats, mechanical bull and country music when they think of Houston Texas. Who could blame them? John Travolta’s “Urban Cowboy” movie was shot in this town and somehow that got stuck. But the truth is, the cowboy culture is no longer as famous as it used to be. The city has grown to become a thriving economic force that makes it the next great American City. It’s even on Forbes’s list of American Coolest cities already. The city is known for many things: the Space Center, oil and gas wealth, rodeo festivals, mouthwatering barbecues and so much more. It’s definitely the home of diversity. It’s a mixture of the laid back city and the booming financial metropolis. Sometimes it’s a wonder how two opposite cultures can survive together in one huge town. But despite of its contrasting civilizations in one area, Houston made it work and managed to get itself known for its assorted blends that brought more people in to this town. So there’s just no way we can label Houston to one specific title, it’s just can’t be done. This place has so much to offer that it has become so heavily populated by tourists from different parts of the world. So if you think you know what to expect in this town, think again. You might just be way over your head to think that. To give you an idea of the variety you’re up to when you decide to visit the town, here are a few of the things you can experience in this diverse city:Johnson Space Center (JSC). It’s only in Houston! This place is the home of the space explorers. Every kid at one point dreamt to be an astronaut and a visit to this place is like a dream come true. You get to view the astronaut gallery where they have the world’s best collection of spacesuits on exhibit. Or experience the thrill and excitement of getting launch into space. You can experience how it is to live literally in space where they give you a taste of what life is like above. And there’s just so much more. Again, another classic example of a diverse attraction where there’s just always something for everyone.Houston’s Rodeo Festivals. The only largest rodeo in the world, Houston’s Livestock Show and Rodeo is just unparalleled to any other festivity. We’re talking about music, rodeo competition, barbecue contests, carnivals, and so much more. This is a celebration of brawn from bull riding, wrestling, barrel racing, and others that will surely put the skills of men, or not to discriminate, women, to the test. This is one Houston party that you shouldn’t miss!Houston’s Culinary Tours. There’s no way you’re leaving this city without having a taste of the different culinary it serves. Just a few of the World-class chefs happens to be in Houston and they offer a variety of delights specifically for your taste buds. You can explore Houston’s food and culture by personally experiencing where these top chefs eat. They will guide you to their personal favorite places to dine, especially to those restaurants that are usually under-the-radar, and you get to try them first. And it’s only in Houston!
