The following year, Houston was incorporated, and a creation of a Chamber of Commerce kick-started the laying down of the city’s infrastructure. Shipping was the first business but by 1860, Houston had also grown into a railroad hub that saw Houston become a commercial exporter of cotton to Europe. After the civil war, efforts were undertaken by the city officials to expand the shipping business, and a deep water port was created to be in sync with the port of Galveston. But, in 1900, a terrible hurricane hit Galveston, which only sped up the development of the new port. The city continued to grow despite a few setbacks caused by the second war but today, Houston is fully recovered and has one of the fastest-growing and robust economies in the United States. As a result of the great wealth created, Houston has also grown to be home to the most diverse cultural scene with over 7 million visitors every year.
Williams Waterwall - This is one of the best stops to cool off your mind and have a quiet time or even take visitors. The big field is ideal for picnics, taking pictures and taking a leisurely stroll, though you should be prepared to get a little wet from being sprinkled by the waterfall.
Chase Tower – sky lobby - This is a must see building in Houston. This tower is super, super high. Take the elevator to the sky lounge which is on the 60th floor. Don’t worry if heights are not your thing or if you get motion sickness, seeing the view from the top of the Chase Tower will be well worth the effort.
George H.W. Bush Monument - The monument is in a beautiful park with green and well-kept grass. The best part of all is you can see the Bayou running through the city and the best city views.
Space and Scientific vibes - Did you know that ‘Houston’ was the first spoken word from the moon? Well, being home to the Johnson Space Center, Houston is famous for space and its scientific contributions. With its great resources, Houston provides the residents and tourists with educational assets and job opportunities.

The heartbeat of this part of the city is continually racing. The rich culture of the Houston community provides a plethora of live arts and entertainment. If you are a visual art lover, you are going to love the Museum District, which is a stone’s throw away from downtown.
Restaurants - If you are a foodie, you are going to have a feast, literally, of one of the most satisfying food scenes in America. Time to enjoy some good ol’ southern food!
Sports - This is the go-to city for baseball, basketball, football and soccer games. If you are sports person, all you need to do is grab your team’s cap and make your way to the Toyota Center, Minute Maid Park, BBVA Compass Stadium or wherever your team is playing.
