When business house hired a charter bus to Houston, a booming city of commerce, for a dual purpose both to see the sights and to get us from meeting to meeting, I couldn’t have been more relived.
A thriving business center, the city has become increasingly cosmopolitan, with an influx of diverse ethnic groups and a strong emphasis on the arts. Opera, ballet, symphony and theater are all top-notch, and museums abound.
After the business related meetings for the day were over we were able to tell the Houston charter bus driver what locations we would want to visit. We asked our charter bus driver to take us to Six Flags theme parks, China town in the southwest.
The arts sector acts as a corner stone in making Houston an increasingly international and culturally diverse city. The Houston Theater District is ranked second, only behind New York City, for the number of theater seats in a concentrated downtown area.
Greater Houston offers us everything from spectacular museum exhibits to vivacious downtown entertainment. We have explored the wonder of space and spent the day shopping in The Galleria. Houston Texas houses the world’s largest rodeo, NASA, Grand Prix of Houston, Shell Houston Open, Rotary Lombardi Award, world-renowned museum and theater district.
Its Ship Channel is the third largest deepwater port in the US with access to shipping the world over. This has brought thousands of business houses to the area to live and work.
The Museum District, within walking distance of Hermann Park, gives us a feel of Houston’s impressive cultural scene. The city is home to more than 500 cultural, visual, and performing arts organizations, including The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Houston Museum of Natural Science; the Children’s Museum of Houston; the Menil Collection; and the Contemporary Arts Museum
