HOUSTON, TX - Have you been thinking of leaving everything and getting a fresh start? Well, moving to Houston might seem like a sound option, especially when you realize the perks of living in the city.

Houston has many jobs ready for its new residents. Aside from oil and gas, aerospace, healthcare, and manufacturing are the big industries that keep the city's economy blossoming.

Expect to find a good amount of work available if you’re in the engineering or business fields. Meanwhile, to those who are in the medical field, please note that Houston is home to the world's largest medical complex so you won't run out of opportunities.

For a big city, Houston is also affordable. The rental prices of one and two-bedroom apartments are $1,120 and $1,370. The rental prices are cheaper than 40 other major U.S. cities.

With its variety of sports teams, museums, and family-friendly activities, you can never run out of activities in Houston when you're off from work. It is home to pro sports teams such as the Rockets (NBA), the Texans (NFL), and the Astros (MLB).

If you are more into science and art, Houston has many theaters and museums. The Theater District, home to the renowned Houston Grand Opera, the Johnson Space Center, Downtown Aquarium, and the Houston Zoo, is definitely one of the places for a day of family fun.

Houston is also definitely a city for foodies. The list of incredible food options in this city is endless—from world-class dining in the East End neighborhood to local favorites like Tex-Mex, Viet-Cajun po-boys, Czech kolaches, and barbecue. You will have many options when you decide to live in H-town.
