Renting a Cheap Apartment in Houston
The Bayou City, Houston is a friendly Texas community with an economy tied to the oil and gas industry. It’s the largest city in Texas, named for General Sam Houston (president of Texas before it became part of the U.S.), and has great museums and theatre, which are popular with visitors. City land use regulations don’t isolate residences or businesses into particular areas, and the result is eclectic neighborhoods. Residential property growth continued to grow here despite a national economic recession. NASA’s Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center is located in Houston, the command post for many U.S. space missions. Houston was host to the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in 2012.
