Houston is definitely a growing city, in more ways than one, leaving many to wonder if it’s going to move up from the fourth largest city in the country to the coveted number three spot. No matter what the future has in store for Houston, there’s no question that it already is an incredible place to live. The wide range of housing options includes suburban, city chic, and farm and ranch. Add to this the lack of state income tax, excellent school districts, and six professional major league sports teams, and everyone can find a reason to get happy about Houston.
