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.
