Welcome to Houston, Texas!

Houston is the nation's fourth largest city, home to over 2 million people and a hub of international businesses. Houston's leaders are also focusing their attention on making their city not only a great place to live, but a great place to visit as well. Houston is a vibrant international city that heartily enjoys its tradition of being a place of firsts. General Sam Houston, the city's heroic namesake, was the first president of the Republic of Texas. Houston, the city, was the first word spoken from the surface of the moon and the first to build an air-conditioned sports stadium. Houston surgeons have performed numerous firsts in heart surgery, and the city is leading the medical community in making cancer history.
