Houston, like many Texas towns, has its own unique history. Established in the 1830’s, Houston’s origin story is definitely one of simpler times. Two brothers bought the land, started advertising for a town named “Houston” and now it’s the fourth-largest city by population in the U.S. As much as the population has grown, so has it’s diversity. With roughly 1.1 million people born outside of the U.S. now living in Houston, the city boasts diverse options of attractions and activities to match its population. If you’re considering Houston for your Texas vacation, then here are some facts to consider before booking your vacation rental or hotel.

  • Houston has over 10,000 restaurants that feature cuisine from over 70 different countries and American regions
  • Houston has one of the highest concentrations of theatre seats in the U.S., providing an easy way to class up your luxury vacation
  • More than 145 languages are spoken in Houston
  • The nation’s first Hindu Mandir was built in Houston
  • The initial surge of Houston residents came when the Port of Houston opened in 1914, at times it has been one of the busiest ports in the world.
  • Houston residents eat out more times a week than residents in any other city, with more diverse options and prices less than the national average

With so much to offer in terms of American history and cultural diversity, Houston offers the best of both worlds for vacation goers who are torn between exploring their own country and experiencing a new culture altogether. If that’s not enough to persuade you, here are a few more activities and attractions to build your Houston vacation around.
