A wonderfully misunderstood city. Yes, Houston is not at the top of anyone's dream destination, but that's what truly makes it great. There are no expectations, no gimmicks and no hoards of tourist getting in your way. It's authentic, it's diverse and it's Texan. You gotta dig deep here to truly enjoy the place, but the reward will be surprising.

Houston is a great place to live and it has a lot to offer. There are plenty of parks, museums, restaurants, shopping, etc. I suggest indoor activities because the heat/humidity will dampen your mood.
