These days, Houston is topping list after list. We’ve been named the Best City in America, the Next Great Global City, and the place where people go to simultaneously get fat and get the best medical care in the country. While we agree with all of our accolades, there's a multitude of reasons why everyone should visit our fair city. Here are 20:
1. To eat. And then eat some more.
We have over 11,000 restaurants, where you’ll find everything from to tongue-scorching Thai curries and wok-fried lobster to Neapolitan-style pies topped with ghost peppers and house-made sausage.
2. Because our people are chiller
We’re a pretty laid-back crew. Most Houstonians' weekend lifestyles consist of tacos, flip-flops, and patio beers. And if they don't, they at least wish they did.
3. Because our theatre district is second only to New York's
Plus, you’ll have a much easier time getting tickets to an excellent array of musicals, plays, Broadway shows, symphonies, and ballets here.
