Houston

Houston sunset

Urban sprawl, hot summers, and a multicultural city

The largest city in Texas, Houston is also one of the most ethnic diverse in the US, with the country’s largest Asian, Arab and Latin American populations. Its multicultural essence can be found everywhere, from museums, to the performing arts and also in the diverse shopping and dining opportunities. Your Houston travel guide will most likely include attractions in the Skyline District, and the Historic District, but don’t be afraid to explore the less popular areas of the city. Gay nightlife is centered in Neartown, around Pacific St. and surrounding streets. The South Loop’s Rice Village is a highly concentrated area of restaurants, bars, and shopping.
