Moving from Milwaukee, WI to Houston, TX

To go from living in Wisconsin’s largest city to moving to the fourth most populous city in the nation is quite the leap, and an excitable one at that. Houston is home to more than 2.1 million people, the result of an ever-growing international immigration and a recent oil boom. The city is also home to such veritable “landmarks” as the Texas Medical Center and Johnson Space Center of NASA, where Mission Control Center is located. Along with a slew of hidden gems to be found throughout, perhaps the biggest attractions to this global city include a broad industrial base in energy, aeronautics, transportation, and manufacturing. Your soon-to-be new friends of the sprawling, Southeastern Texas port city, once named “The Coolest City in the U.S.,” are here waiting. The question remains…what are you waiting for?

Weather for Houston

  • Compared to Milwaukee’s humid continental climate, Houston has a humid subtropical climate, warranting Gulf moisture, desert winds, and spring supercell thunderstorms.
  • Summer humidity raises the heat index above the actual temperature, which is 93 F on average for July. Thankfully, Houston is the “most air-conditioned place on earth!”

  • The METRO transit system provides service via bus, light rail, and lift vans. METRORail light rail service is hugely popular in Houston, with one-way service for just $1.25!
  • While cyclists in Houston will normally use the city’s 290 miles of marked bike routes for exercise only, anyone willing is urged to enjoy cycling, whether solely or inter-modally!
