HOUSTON CULTURE - HOUSTON CULTURE TEXAS TX

Houston CultureHouston Culture - Houston is a multicultural city with 100 different ethnic groups calling the city's metro area home. Mexican, South American, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Indian, Middle Eastern, and even European are some of the different ethnicities that make Houston great. This diversity is apparent in the many types of restaurants and groceries that give the city a little bit of extra flavor.

Houston has many festivals during the year to honor these ethnic groups and to spread knowledge and tolerance of their ways. Churches and spiritual centers of all kinds are apparent all over the city and it is not uncommon to find a Houstonian of Christian Descent visiting a mosque or synagogue to pray and reflect. Houston also has museums that are dedicated to educating and honoring those cultures who have made contributions to Texas and America.

The Buffalo Soldier's Museum recognizes the hard work and sacrifice of black soldiders in America's wars. MECA, the Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts, was founded in 1977 to inspire the youth of the inner city while Talento Bilingue de Houston recognizes Hispanic talent in the arts and sciences.

Houston is also a city of diverse economic background. While driving on the freeways and the streets, you will see anything from Jaguars and Mercedes to pickup trucks, mini vans and older vehicles. Poor people and wealthy people live and work in the city, helping to make the concentration of stores and housing developments in different parts of the city.

Houston is also home to a large Gay Pride Parade held annually on a section of Westheimer Road in the Montrose. With this being said, it is important to point out that Houston is a city of tolerant people who will embrace you for who you are. They appreciate the differences that make us all so unique and help to make the city a hubub of industry, arts and entertainment.
