About Houston, Texas (USA)
Houston, the fourth largest city in the United States, has a population of more than 4 million. Its residents, representing a variety of cultures, contribute to Houston's strong international orientation in the arts, entertainment, commerce, and education. From multi-cultural extravaganzas such as the Houston International Festival and the Houston International Film Festival in the spring to the Italian, Caribbean, Greek, Hispanic, Mediterranean, Egyptian and Indian festivals in the fall, immigrants from all over the world find numerous diversions that remind them of home. The city also offers a broad variety of ethnic cuisines, such as Chinese, Ethiopian, Bangladeshi, Greek, Indonesian, Indian, South American, Japanese, Persian, Mexican and Thai. Between festivals and dining at a favorite ethnic restaurant, the residents also enjoy the traditional performing arts. Houston is a huge city and pretty much conservative, where the family and good old fashion values still remain. It's a city full of nice people. You will rarely find a person that will not hold the door open for you, joke with you in the supermarket line and just be tempted to make small talk. The people are the soul of this city. They have the best attitude among all cities in the U.S.
