America's most rundown city. Just driving from either Bush International or Houston Hobby airports reveals the truth that while this a business town, she is one ugly skank. Residents are uneducated and thuggish, for the most part. Even the most upscale mall, the Galleria, is geared towards people who can't afford to shop there. Nightlife? What nightlife? Just because you slap a sign on a tired-looking building doesn't make it upscale. Washington Ave? Ghetto fabulous. Rice Village? Ugly strip malls backed up to each other. Montrose? This is an embarrassment for anyone who identifies as gay. What a complete mess and dump.

Poor Houstonians try so hard to lumped together with NYC, Chicago and LA, but fail miserably. Houston is the forgotten red-headed step child who is ignored and ridiculed behind her back. She's fat (fattest city in US), she's uneducated (low number of residents with college degrees), she's ugly (just drive around and you'll agree), she's flat (not a hill in sight). Did I mention she's violent, too? Look at the crime stats.

The only reason to visit this place is to see your aging Grandma Maria or just to change planes onto a much better destination. Nothing comes out of Houston except a bunch of hot air. Please stop telling me that you can get cuisine from any country. The same can be said about any city in America.

Official motto of city? Houston - It's embarrassingly cheap for a reason...come see why
Houstonian: Hi, I'm Juan and I'm from Houston.

Person 2: Really? That place is boring dump of a city.

Houstonian: We have the second most Fortune 500 companies in the country.

Person 2: Gee, where do I sign up?

First word heard from the moon. The nation's fourth largest city and home to the Texas Medical Center (the world's largest) and NASA's Johnson Space Center.

Few cities in the world can match H-Town as a source for blues and rap talent. Home of ZZ Top and Beyoncé.

One of the best places to live, work, play, eat, play music, hear music, do art, see art, get sick, get well, work out, hang out, and make a decent living doing whatever your heart says you were put on earth to do.
The U.S. economy can be up or down but there's always money to be made in Houston.

A very large, hot, humid, sprawling, congested, multi-cultural, sophisticated, yet laid back city that doesn't take itself too seriously such as lesser cities like Dallas.
A place that newcomers claim to despise, but for some reason, stay put and keep coming in hordes.

A world class city for arts, entertaiment, sports, dining and more.

No place in America can you find so much for so little cost.
Houston is hot, humid, and the only place in America I want to be.

Houston, Texas is located 45 miles north of Galveston and the Gulf of Mexico. And high temperatures in the summer are usually in the mid-90s.

Dallas is 300 miles from the Gulf and hotter, and the people there are a whole lot less friendly.
What was the dude thinking who said Houston was 70 miles from Galveston and 120 degrees in the summer??

A Great city. Art, rap, culture. Very conveiniently located, only about 70 miles from Galveston (A Barrier Island in the Gulf of Mexico, popular tourist location), and is home of Elington Feild, and N.A.S.A. The First words from the moon where heard here. Major industries include oil and petrochem, but just about anything can make money here. Untill October 2005, we had an amusement park, named "Six Flags Astroworld", located right across the way from the Astro Dome. Did I mention that we had the first Dome-Stadium? New Orleans and the rest copied us. As a legal citizen of Houston, I can say that Houston is a very LARGE city, always with somthing going on. ZZ Top was started here. The word "Houston" is often used to discribe the downtown, but the city encompasses many, "Sub-cities", such as Humble, Kingwood, parts of the Woodlands, and more cities to the west. Contrary to popular belief, Texas is NOT all Desert, as shown in Western films. In fact, we have trees, bah, Forests all over. Because Houston is located near the Gulf of Mexico, the weather ususaly stays under 120 Ferenheit in the summer, and usualy never hits freezing.
Houston, Texas. Great city, slowly deteriorating.

Houston, (pronounced Yew-Ston)is the best place to live in the world. Home of Beyonce,Mike Jones,Paul Wall, Chamillionaire, Bun B, Slim Thug, and countless other rappers. Also the starting place of ZZ Top. The first words from the moon were heard here. And the Medical Center is the best in the world. Living in Houston is the greatest.
