Houston is a great place to live with its beautiful locales and great amenities. It is the fourth-largest city in the U.S. (population 2 million), located 50 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. Houston has all the ingredients for a great lifestyle. Some of the aspects which make Houston, interesting and worth living are:

Sports and Recreation: Houston is home to two of the NBA champions Houston Rockets and Houston Comets. Houston has some of the best parks in the worlds. The Bay Area Park of Houston, located south on Interstate 45 that has baseball and soccer fields, tennis courts and a boat ramp on Taylor Lake.

Museum: Houston has 11 museums. This includes the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the Contemporary Arts Museum (http://www.camh.org/), The Childrenís Museum of Houston, The Museum of Natural Science (http://www.hmns.org/)(housing an IMAX theater, Planetarium and Cockerell Butterfly Center), The Houston Museum of Health Science (http://www.mhms.org/) and the Holocaust Museum (http://www.hmh.org/). The museums are usually not very crowded, admission is generally very reasonable, and the exhibits change frequently and are well displayed.

Shopping and Restaurants: There are hundreds of fabulous restaurants featuring every possible imaginable type of cuisine in this city than any other in the country, after New York. Again, they are much more affordable and accessible than New York, and tend to be less formal.

The Greater Houston Partnership was formed to promote further business in this business friendly city. The partnership is a joint effort comprising of hundredís of business luminaries from different walks of life.

I'll move to Houston when:

1. The Houston City Government gives me a 6 or 8 cylinder car (so I fit right in and don't become a social pariah for not having a car - a 6 or 8 cylinder car).

2. The Houston City Government gives me petrol to put in my car; and

3. The Houston City Government indemnifies both me and all of my successors for all lawsuits arising howsoever and wheresoever for polluting the earth's atmosphere because I have to drive a car from my McMansion 10 minutes to get a pizza or video.

Until that happens, its a big Texas NO from me.
