The massive metropolis of Houston, sprawling
across the Gulf Coast plain of East Texas from its busy port, is
almost twice the size of the entire state of Rhode Island. Even
with this heavy urban concentration, though, Houston is green and
lush, sited at the end of a belt of forest coming down from the
north, and characterised by marshlands and bayous lined with
cypress trees in the southern reaches.
Museum District Houston
Set within a scenic part of central Houston
is the city's Museum District, featuring 11 varied and interesting
institutions and numerous restaurants set among some lovely green
spaces like Hermann Park.
The Orange Show Houston
For a touch of the bizarre call at the Orange
Show to see how obsession can become art.
Sam Houston Historical Park Houston
The Sam Houston Historical Park near the
city's visitor centre in Bagby Street provides visitors with a
large as life look at Houston history.
