10 Things You’ll Love About Moving to Houston

2.    Weather. Houston has mild winters and warm summers. In the winter, average temperatures are in the 60s. There is very little measureable snowfall. Summers can get warm, with temps climbing above 90 degrees. However, because you’re on the coast, you can enjoy coastal breezes. Along with those breezes, sometimes the area is prone to hurricanes, so brush up on your hurricane safety after moving to Houston.

3.    Culture. The “Bayou City” is chock full of entertainment, cultural, and recreational fun! If you enjoy the arts, the Theater District is a large area downtown full of performing arts venues where you can enjoy shows year-round.

4.    Rodeo. If you are a rodeo fan, Houston is home to the largest livestock show and rodeo in the world! Not only is it a fun event, it’s also a charitable, educational, scientific show that grants scholarships, funding, and educational endowments. Part of the rodeo is the World’s Championship Bar-B-Que cook-off, where 300 teams spend three days cooking and competing.

5.    Great outdoor spaces. Enjoy the great outdoors? You can participate in activities in one of the 337 parks around town. These parks cover over 37,000 acres with parks, greenspaces, playgrounds, tennis courts, trails, a Japanese garden, water spraygrounds, and more!

6.    Sports. Sports fans will LOVE living in Houston! Houston is home to the Astros (MLB), Texans (NFL), and Rockets (NBA). You can also see games from the Dynamo (soccer) and the Aeros (hockey). Houston also has semi-pro and amateur tennis, women’s football, indoor football and more! Not to mention all the collegiate sports events you can watch.

There are 17 school districts ,and the Houston Independent School District is the largest with 112 campuses and 40,000 students. There are also 300 private schools to choose from. If you are seeking higher education, there are many colleges and universities to study at, including the University of Houston, the largest in the area.

8.    NASA. “Houston, we have a problem.” If you are a space junkie, you will love living in town with the Johnson Space Center (home of Mission Control!).
