Founded by two brothers in 1836 Houston is now the fourth largest city in America. With a city population of just over two million and a metropolitan population of six million, this is a vibrant modern city. Generally referred to as ‘The Energy Capitol of the World’ the city is home to over 5,000 energy related firms including 25 Fortune 500 companies – only New York City has more. Among other credits - the largest oil refinery in the USA, 2nd largest theater district in America, the world’s largest livestock show and rodeo. Houston also features the world’s largest medical center with 52,000 employees and 4.8 million patients.


The downtown area has nineteen museums and some amazing modern architecture by Philip Johnson, I.M. Pei and many others. Sports are well represented with the Toyota Center (Rockets), Minute Maid Park (Astros) and a state-of-the-art 22,000 seat open-air soccer stadium for the Dynamo. The routing of the tour will go from Bayport to the San Jacinto Monument, the world’s tallest column monument, which commemorates the battle where Texas gained independence from Mexico. Drive past the USS Battleship Texas and continue to Reliant Stadium (Texans) to the downtown area. At Hermann Park you will see a statue of the statesman Sam Houston and then continue to the Texas Medical Center, Rice University, the exclusive River Oaks residential area and finally to the airport.
