Everyone's heard the stereotype: it's all cowboys, cactus and cattle. While those Texas roots are strong, Houston at http://hereishouston.com/ will surprise you with everything it has to offer. The ten-county region is the largest city not only in Texas, but in the entire Southern United States. Here the grass is green, landscaping is lush and the tree canopy is thick and widespread. It's the perfect mix of Southern greenery and urban sophistication. Known as the Bayou City at http://www.visitbayareahouston.com/ , the Houston metro area at http://www.visithoustontexas.com/ —the sixth largest in the nation—is crisscrossed by a number of bayous, many of them flowing into Buffalo Bayou, the site of the city's birthplace in the downtown area.
