The true Texan experience lies in the bustling city of Houston. In this large metropolis, tourists and residents alike love the city’s soaring skyscrapers, as well as world-class options for dining. Proud of its cosmopolitan and downtown vibe, Houston is where you will find award-winning restaurants, as well as plenty of shopping opportunities down Westheimer Road and Post Oak Boulevard. Beyond this type of excitement, Houston is home to Texas Medical Center, as well as many educational institutions, such as Lone Star College and Sam Houston State University. In East Houston, plenty of green spaces lie along Greens Bayou only minutes away from North Forest High School, KIPP Legacy Preparatory School, Republic Tube, and Dyersdale Village Apartments.
