Houston is the largest city in the state of Texas and the fourth largest city in the United States of America. Houston is the county seat of Harris County, with a population of approximately 1.9 million. Some refer to Houston as the "Bayou (pronounced buy-yoo) City."

Houston is known for its thriving energy industry and the largest medical center in the country, as well as the second largest performing arts district in the nation.

Unlike most other big cities, Houston is growing[1] and has affordable housing relatively close to its downtown. It has benefited from no zoning, in contrast which liberal cities.

Its current mayor is Democrat Sylvester Turner, who replaced fellow Democrat Annice Parker after she stepped down due to term limits.

History
