Space city USA - Houston holds the mantel as the third largest city in the U.S. and largest city in Texas. Once a sleepy town on Buffalo Bayou, Houston is now a diverse and culturally rich city of millions of people from every part of the world and is the home of NASA's Johnson Space Center.

Houston is world renowned for its energy industry (particularly oil), aeronautics industry and ship channel. The Port of Houston is one of the busiest ports in the United States, second in the world as far as foreign tonnage. Because of the economic trades, many residents have moved in from other U.S. states, as well as hundreds of countries worldwide. As the largest city in the United States without zoning laws, Houston has grown in an unusual manner. Rather than a single “downtown” as the center of the city's employment, various other business districts have sprung up throughout the inner-city.

"The benefits of education and of useful knowledge, generally diffused through a community, are essential to the preservation of a free government." - Sam Houston
