Houston, Texas is a hot spot for people wanting to relocate. Not only does this popular city have much to see and do, the quality of life and cost of living appeals to people from all over the country. Whether you’re looking for a great place to raise kids or start anew, moving to Houston could be a great option.

Activities and Attractions

Moving to Houston means you’ll have a lot to explore in your new hometown, depending on your tastes:

Downtown Houston
In the city’s urban center, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy an underwater escape at the Downtown Aquarium, a fascinating encounter of the inner human body at The Health Museum and ferris wheel rides overlooking the high-rise buildings and overpasses.

You can also head over to the Theater District for popular musicals and plays, or join in the free yoga classes, writer workshops for kids, concerts and more at Discovery Green Park.

NASA Johnson Space Center
Space Center Houston is located halfway between Houston and Galveston. The NASA Johnson Space Center is a must-see and has more than a day’s worth of discoveries. Take a guided tour on your first day at the center and enjoy a hands-on learning experience the next. See rocks brought back from the moon, real astronaut suits and a gigantic space shuttle. Visiting the mission control center is a highlight of the tour, not to be missed.

Sports Events
Another reason you may enjoy moving to Houston is that you can enjoy year-round sporting events. National teams like the Houston Texans (NFL) and Houston Astros (MLB) play in extravagant, must-see stadiums. Of course, you can also catch the legendary Houston Rockets (NBA) in action as well.

In the off-season, visit Sam Houston Race Park and cheer your favorite horse all the way around the track. Visit the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo when it comes to town every February and watch the festive atmosphere take over Houston with bull riding, concerts and more.

Find Daily Deals
