6 Ways Living in Houston Will Keep You on Your Toes

Living in Houston is often an adventure of sorts. I think of Houston as constantly changing, and that's part of what keeps things interesting. There is an odd rhythm to this city. It's fast-paced, but not absurdly so, and there are quite a few things that keep things exciting, if occasionally also presenting us with challenges. In short, Houston is one of those places that keep their residents on their toes. Here are a few of the ways it does that, because life here sure isn't boring!

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
