Living in Houston TX

Living in Houston TX means all the attractions and amenities of one of the greatest cities in the world are at your fingertips. As home builders in Houston, we know every family has a unique reason for settling down here. If you just found your new home here, let HistoryMaker Homes introduce you to everything Houston has to offer.

Things to do in Houston

With over two million residents, Houston certainly is a popular place to live. The city is known by many as the capital of space exploration. The Johnson Space Center not only has artifacts and information about the history of space exploration (including a full-size rocket), but it is also an active workplace with mission control centers. Live in Houston, and you may just witness a launch or two!

It may go without saying that this Texas town has plenty of sports action. Houston has six professional teams, including the Astros (MLB), Texans (NFL), and Rockets (NBA). The city also has plenty of sports clubs at all levels of competition. Whether you’re into soccer or fencing or anything in between, there is a group of like-minded enthusiasts for you.

Houston also has a thriving arts scene. The city has resident opera, ballet, symphony, and theater companies. In fact, downtown Houston has the second-largest concentration of theater seats in the United States!

Finally, eating is a very big deal in Houston. With over 11,000 restaurants, you will never run out of places to try. As a Houston resident, you can explore Houston’s Chinatown and Mahatma Gandhi District for your favorite restaurants.

Schools in Houston

One of the things that makes Houston a great place to live is its schools. There are several highly acclaimed public school districts throughout the Houston area. In addition, Houston has charter schools, specialized magnet schools, and over 300 private schools from which to choose. 

Talk with your sales consultant about the school districts serving the HistoryMaker Homes communities that you are considering. You can also learn about each community’s elementary, middle, and high schools on their unique webpage.

Commuting in Houston

If you live in Houston, you will likely need a vehicle. Very few people utilize public transportation, although walking, biking, and carpooling are popular. Houston actually has the largest number of bike commuters in Texas, and the city has been expanding its network of bikeways for years. The city’s bike-sharing system, Houston Bcycle, has also slowly expanded over time.

HistoryMaker Homes has new home communities throughout Houston. Check out where we are currently building, and find the perfect community for you. You can even filter by price, area, square footage, and school district. Of course, we’re here as a resource for you, too, and we’re always here to help you through the home buying process. Contact us to start the conversation and learn more about living in Houston.
