Once the site of the capitol of the Republic of Texas, the city of Houston began on August 30, 1836 when a feature in the Telegraph and Texas Register advertised the creation of the "Town of Houston." The city was incorporated just a short year after. Named after Sam Houston, Houston's population and size ranks fourth in the nation. With over 100 ethnic groups, there's no surprise that Houston boasts a large variety of restaurants ranging from Tex Mex to South American and from European delicacies to Vietnamese and Asian cuisine. Houston is home to sports teams representing every major league and is packed with family and night time attractions. With an outstanding theater district and countless museums to visit, Houston has something for everyone!
