The Houston metropolitan area covers more ground than any other city in the United States. Residents of the Memorial area of Houston are fortunate to live in proximity to the "Bayou City," one of the most dynamic and successful places in the country. Houston boasts a number of waterways, which provide not only water for irrigation but also numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation.
Residents of the Greater Houston Area enjoy easy access to a number of urban amenities, making it the ideal city in which to work. Bush Intercontinental and Hobby airports are located on opposite sides of the city. Greenway Plaza, the Interstate 10 Energy Corridor and the Texas Medical Center?just a few of the business districts outside of the inner city?are booming with business development. And with two major convention venues, Houston is the perfect city to hold a large gathering or event.
Of course, there's plenty to do in this enormous city besides just work. Exciting Houston-area attractions include the Downtown Aquarium, the Houston Arboretum, Space Center Houston and the Armand Bayou Nature Center. As might be expected in a city of this size, shopping opportunities in Houston are outstanding. Popular shopping areas include the Galleria, Rice Village, Highland Village, and the Old Town Spring Shopping Village. For a day of pampering, a number of spas are located throughout the city. Numerous theaters can be found in Houston, and the city also has its own ballet, symphony and opera companies.
