Houston

Welcome to Hustle Town

Hustle Town, H-Town, Bayou City, Clutch City, Space City… Rich in culture and steeped in history and heritage, Houston is emerging as the greatest city in the South. It’s the 4th largest city in the country and in 2012 surpassed New York as the most diverse with over 145 languages spoken. Houston is also more socially advanced than many, with a thriving gay and lesbian population and the first openly gay mayor of any major city, Anise Parker. At the end of her term limit in 2015, fellow democrat Sylvester Turner, an African American, was sworn in. The local economy has radically diversified from its dependence on oil and gas of yesteryear. Houston boasts the largest and most advanced medical center in the world and major banking, consulting and legal firms are increasing their presence. As for the food scene, it’s hard to find a city with more recent accolades. Houston has been named among the greatest food cities in the country (Washington Post) and the most interesting food city in America (Food and Wine Magazine). It’s also friendly – so if you’re lucky enough to be moving to Houston, welcome.
