While the rest of the world is playing catch up to Diversity and Inclusion, Houston has paved the way in creating a diverse and enriched culture. Houston is known for its culinary excellence, south coast swagger, and cultivating top “A- List” celebrities and artists.
Greater Houston is the most ethnically diverse metropolitan area in the United States. At least 145 languages are spoken by city residents, and 90 nations have consular representation in the city.
Houston is the Fourth largest city in the nation, and is the largest in the South, and largest in Texas. Houston is expected to become third largest in the late 2020’s. We are known as the Third Coast, Bayou City, H-Town, The H, and many other names that our subcultures have created.
Houston has one of the worlds most diverse and extravagant food scenes. Everything from chicken fried steak, bbq brisket, to tortillas and Vietnamese pho. It has been said, that one can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at a different restaurant every day for a year, and not visit the same restaurant once.
We take pride in our drive here, and if you aren’t from here, learn some quick tips of our southern hospitality. If you are going the speed limit in the fast lane, move over, left lane is for passing. Where many cities make up commutes with traffic, we make it up with distance. Greater Houston is massive, and remember, everything is bigger in Texas.
