Houston is a large commercial center in Texas, where oil was
discovered in 1901. Since that time, the wealthy in the country have made
certain to invest in the city itself. Houston is the fourth largest U.S. city
and thrives on a wildly spirited attitude which lends itself to quick abandon.
It is full of speculators, mega-churches and business headquarters. There is
always something to do in the city. If you love museums, you will love Houston.
The nightlife is full of dazzling, glowing events. The city is modern, yet
maintains its feel of the "Old West."
