Welcome to Houston – the nation’s fourth largest city and a metropolis with one of the lowest costs of living in the country. In addition to being a well-known business center for energy, medicine, aerospace, international commerce and high technology, Houston is one of only five cities in the country with year-round resident companies in all five major performing arts – musical theater, opera, ballet, symphony and drama. And there’s more. Within a 15-to 60-minute drive from almost anywhere in the area, one also can enjoy premier art galleries, water sports, entertainment centers, elite golf courses, championship professional sports and religious centers for almost every faith.
