Houston’s JP Morgan Chase Tower, Wells Fargo Bank Plaza, and Williams Tower all crack the list of top 50 tallest buildings in the U.S. As of 2012, 10 of the nation’s 100 tallest buildings are in Houston. Some famous people raised in this large, Texas city are: director Wes Anderson; broadcast journalist Walter Cronkite; South Park’s Matt Stone; actors Dennis and Randy Quaid, Patrick Swayze, and Isaiah Washington; comedian Bill Hicks; athletes Clyde Drexler, Vince Young, Roger Clemens, and George Foreman; singers Beyoncé Knowles, Lyle Lovett, Kelly Rowland, and Kenny Rogers; aerospace engineer, film director, and entrepreneur Howard Hughes; and famed heart surgeon Denton Cooley.

When companies come to us for executive staffing needs in Houston, they are generally looking for an Oil and Gas, Manufacturing or Transportation executive.




Career opportunities aside, why live in Houston? One important factor to consider is the weather. For many people, Houston weather is less than ideal. Compared to the average US city, Houston is hot, humid, and rainy.

Daily Houston temperatures are above the national average all year round. Houston’s average summer temperatures range from 75°F-95°F and its average winter temperatures range from 45°- 65°. National average daily temperatures are between 65° and 85° in the summer and 30° to 50° in the winter.

At the same time, the city is humid and rainy. Morning humidity levels reach 90% while afternoon humidity levels are around 65% year round. Both levels are about 10% higher than the national average. Also, precipitation in Houston tends to exceed the national average of 3-inches per month year round. Houston’s rainiest months are typically toward the end of spring (May and June) and the end of summer (September). During these periods, rainfall in Houston can reach up to 7-inches per month.

Wind speed is about 1 mph below the national average year round. Also, sunshine levels are around the national average and snowfall is pretty much non-existent.

Things to Do…

Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center: Houston’s Manned Spacecraft Center was built in 1961 after the creation of NASA. During the 1960s center led the American campaign to put a man on the moon. Today the center is still used for training, research, and aerospace flight control. The center was the Command Station for the Apollo Missions and the Space Shuttle program. In 1970 the Apollo 13 mission nearly avoided disaster, prompting the famous (often misquoted) phrase, “Houston, we’ve had a problem.” In 1973 the Command Center was renamed Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center.

Museum of Fine Arts, Houston: Houston’s Museum of Fine Arts is a one of the largest art museums in the United States. The museum’s permanent collection contains over 62,000 works from all over the world. The museum’s total exhibition space is over 300,000 sq. ft. It is therefore separated into seven facilities: Caroline Wiess Law Building, Audrey Jones Beck Building, The Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden, Glassell School of Art, Central Administration and Glassell Junior School of Art Building, Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, and Rienzi. The museum, since its foundation in 1900, has become home to several famous works of art including: Hans Memling’s Portrait of an Old Woman, William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s The Elder Sister, Claude Monet’s Nature morte au bouquet, and Monet’s famous painting Water Lilies.

The Galleria: Houston’s Galleria is an upscale urban development. It consists of an office complex and 375 stores of retail space. The Galleria, which first opened in 1970, is the largest mall in Texas and the seventh largest in the United States. 35 million people visit the Galleria and its 2.4 million sq. feet of retail space every year. Stores that anchor the galleria are: Macy’s Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Dillard’s. The largest of the Galleria’s three office towers is the Galleria Financial Center. Financial institutions such as Merrill Lynch, UBS AG, Citigroup, law offices, and energy trading companies occupy the tower. Also, two hotels are located in the Galleria complex- the Westin Galleria and the Westin Oaks.

Houston Arboretum and Nature Center: The Houston Arboretum and Nature Center is a non-profit arboretum and nature center in Houston’s Memorial Park. The center contains over 5 miles of nature trails that lead to forest, pond, wetland, and meadow habitats. There are also specialty gardens inside the arboretum such as Hummingbird & Butterfly Island, Sensory garden, and Wildlife Garden. The arboretum is open to the public daily with free admission. It’s the best way to forget about all the environmental damage Houston’s oil industry has done.

San Jacinto Monument: The Battle of San Jacinto was the decisive battle of the Texas Revolution. The “battle” was more of a slaughter. In 18 minutes Sam Houston’s Texan Army destroyed Santa Anna’s Mexican Army. The final casualty counts: Mexican Army- 630, Texan Army-9. Three weeks later Santa Anna signed a treaty, which led to the formation of the Republic of Texas. The San Jacinto Monument was constructed between 1936 and 1939 in the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site. At 567.31 feet, the monument is the world’s tallest monumental column. Visitors can take an elevator up to the monument’s observation deck for a great view of the city of Houston.
