"A city is a place where there is no need to wait for next week to get the answer to a question, to taste the food of any country, to find new voices to listen to and familiar ones to listen to again."
- Margaret Mead, American cultural anthropologist
Houston is a city alive with energy and rich in diversity. You can find answers to most of your questions, converse in over 100 foreign languages, eat international food from almost any region or meet people who have come from every corner of the globe to make Houston their home.
As America’s fourth-largest city, Houston offers outsized opportunities for its citizens and visitors. Widely known as the “Energy Capital of the World,” Houston is also a hub for biomedicine, higher education, law, logistics and technology. Home to the world’s largest medical center, the Texas Medical Center, the nation’s largest port for foreign tonnage, the second-highest concentration of Fortune 500 companies and third-largest Consular Corps, Houston is a city of infinite resources and vibrant international connections.
