The fourth largest city in the USA, Houston rivals Austin and Dallas as the jewel in the crown of Texas. Boasting a vibrant fine arts scene featuring award-winning opera, ballet, and theatre companies, Houston is also home to a symphony orchestra. Modern art connoisseurs will also enjoy the Rothko chapel, which houses many of the abstract works of iconic Latvian-American painter Mark Rothko. Outside of its arts scene and an awe-inspiring skyline which shows off the resplendent wealth of Texas, Houston also possesses great shopping at Uptown’s Galleria mall, whilst trendy Montrose houses some fine restaurants. Visitors to Houston can also escape the city and explore the tremendous beaches of the Gulf Coast, discover the quirky city of Austin and roam around Texas Hill Country.
