Texas Nightlife History

Nitzer Ebb – Backlash (William Orbit Mix)

we used to hang out in Houston for most of the 80s. It was the place to go! ice skating at the Galleria! AstroWorld! and Concerts! not to mention Galveston!

Houston (/ˈhjuːstən/ HEW-stən) is the most populous city in Texas and in the Southern United States. It is the fourth-most populous city in the United States after New York CityLos Angeles, and Chicago, and the sixth-most populous city in North America. With a population of 2,302,878 in 2022,[2] Houston is located in Southeast Texas near Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico; it is the seat and largest city of Harris County and the principal city of the Greater Houston metropolitan area, which is the fifth-most populous metropolitan statistical area in the United States and the second-most populous in Texas after Dallas–Fort Worth. Houston is the southeast anchor of the greater megaregion known as the Texas Triangle.[7]

Comprising a land area of 640.4 square miles (1,659 km2),[8] Houston is the ninth-most expansive city in the United States (including consolidated city-counties). It is the largest city in the United States by total area whose government is not consolidated with a county, parish, or borough. Though primarily in Harris County, small portions of the city extend into Fort Bend and Montgomery counties, bordering other principal communities of Greater Houston such as Sugar Land and The Woodlands.

Houston was founded by land investors on August 30, 1836,[9] at the confluence of Buffalo Bayou and White Oak Bayou (a point now known as Allen’s Landing) and incorporated as a city on June 5, 1837.[10][11] The city is named after former General Sam Houston, who was president of the Republic of Texas and had won Texas’s independence from Mexico at the Battle of San Jacinto 25 miles (40 km) east of Allen’s Landing.[11] After briefly serving as the capital of the Texas Republic in the late 1830s, Houston grew steadily into a regional trading center for the remainder of the 19th century.[12]

The arrival of the 20th century brought a convergence of economic factors that fueled rapid growth in Houston, including a burgeoning port and railroad industry, the decline of Galveston as Texas’s primary port following a devastating 1900 hurricane, the subsequent construction of the Houston Ship Channel, and the Texas oil boom.[12] In the mid-20th century, Houston’s economy diversified, as it became home to the Texas Medical Center—the world’s largest concentration of healthcare and research institutions—and NASA‘s Johnson Space Center, home to the Mission Control Center.

Since the late 19th century Houston’s economy has had a broad industrial base, in energymanufacturing, aeronautics, and transportation. Leading in healthcare sectors and building oilfield equipment, Houston has the second-most Fortune 500 headquarters of any U.S. municipality within its city limits (after New York City).[13][14] The Port of Houston ranks first in the United States in international waterborne tonnage handled and second in total cargo tonnage handled.[15]

Nicknamed the “Bayou City”, “Space City”, “H-Town”, and “the 713“, Houston has become a global city, with strengths in culture, medicine, and research. The city has a population from various ethnic and religious backgrounds and a large and growing international community. Houston is the most diverse metropolitan area in Texas and has been described as the most racially and ethnically diverse major city in the U.S.[16] It is home to many cultural institutions and exhibits, which attract more than seven million visitors a year to the Museum District. The Museum District is home to nineteen museums, galleries, and community spaces. Houston has an active visual and performing arts scene in the Theater District, and offers year-round resident companies in all major performing arts.[17]

Traffic between Austin and Houston is steadily getting worse due to absolutely no regional planning and getting stuck in traffic jams even on the weekend is now a distinct possibility during random hours of the day and night! however, you might have someone do the driving for you now! check out Vonlane!
