each location special.
The Cultural Diversity of Missouri
Named “the most ethnically diverse
county in America,” by the New York Times, Fort Bend County offers a unique
blend of cultures that showcases a different vision for the future of Texas.
Approximately one-third of the county’s
residents were born outside of the United States and the demographics of the
region are so diverse, you can find people with roots from all over the world.
From food to music to art and a
dynamic think-tank of cross-cultural idea sharing, Missouri City, TX offers the
same breadth of diversity found in giant cities without all the stresses that
come with life in a dense urban environment.
Missouri City is home to big-time
celebrities, too. Singer, songwriter and record producer Travis Scott is from
Missouri City and last year he was ceremoniously handed the keys to the city.
During his acceptance speech he said, “This is better than any award show I’ve
ever been to. My only job is just to inspire kids to be the best they can be,
to reach their ultimate height.”
Hop on the Sugar Land Train
Land is one of the fasted-growing cities in Texas and one of the most-affluent,
too. With rapid population growth and a rise in employment opportunities to
match, the city is a fantastic base for settling in for a bright future.
Sugar Land is of course known as the headquarters for the famed Imperial Sugar
Company, a large percentage of the city’s residents are educated white collar
employees working in Houston’s energy sector. Schlumberger, a major oil
services enterprise relocated its offices to Sugar Land in 1995 and many other
large businesses have followed suit. In fact, Outlook Magazine and Texas
Business both named Sugar Land as one of the top ten cities in Texas for
relocating or growing a business.

concerns about the parade to the Dallas City Council and it was shut down in

city to accept the parade’s application. The public’s demand for the parade
also helped sway the decision to bring it back through their idea of an
“un-parade” where make-shift floats read “this is not a parade”. Soon after,
the city granted the permit for the 1989 Greenville Avenue St. Patrick’s Day

From football to soccer, Houston is home to many successful professional sports. Not only is the city home to a number of professional teams and college sports programs, many other annual sporting events for teams outside of Texas are also hosted in Houston. Plus, Texas pride and loyalty makes for an unparalleled fan culture.
Houston is home to six professional major league teams and
four stadiums that hold over 150,000 fans collectively, making it worthy of the
City, USA in 2016.
The Houston Texans
anchor the city’s fascination with sports and have established themselves as
the most iconic part of Houston’s sports identity. Led by fan favorite J.J.
Stadium is packed with football fans during home games making attending a
game an experience in its own.
Then there’s James Harden and The Houston Rockets – another huge part
of Houston’s sports culture. The Rockets plays their home games at Toyota Center in downtown
Houston and have collected two NBA championships and four Western Conference
titles during their time in Houston. With the arrival of star player Harden in
2012, the Rockets soon became one of the highest
scoring offenses in the NBA.
The Houston Dynamo
are yet another professional sports team that the city has to offer fans. The
soccer club was established in 2005 and quickly went on to win the 2006 and
2007 MLS Cups as well as the U.S. Open Cup in 2018. Then there’s this fact: In
2008, Houston Dynamo became the first American club to secure a point on
Mexican soil during the CONCACAF
Last but most certainly not least are The Houston Astros. The 2017 World Series
champs play their home games at Minute
Maid Park in downtown Houston and have established themselves as one of the
American League’s top teams to beat this decade.
There are many reasons why Houston is a great city to call home. One of them is the abundance of professional sporting teams and events to enjoy, but more importantly is the spirited culture you can experience throughout either city.
