If one day I would get a millionaire, I am clear that one of the first things I would do would be to stick with me for a few months doing a route through the United States to discover so many and so many corners that I want to know. In this case I’m talking about Houston , in Texas. It is the fourth most populated city in the country and the largest in the State. It has about two and a half million inhabitants. Surely you remember perfectly that of "Houston, we have a problem" that Tom Hanks said in the movie "Apollo 13".
Houston is a mix of a country city and a modern city in which the tall glass buildings of the city center are the opposite point of the green areas and large neighborhoods of the suburbs, a wonderful contrast. Among the places of interest in Houston there are many museums, such as the Rienzi, which is the exhibition center for all the works that come from Europe and in its almost two hectares has a house and spectacular gardens. The George Ranch Historical Park is a 200-acre ranch park that reflects Texas history for more than 100 years.
To enjoy the most incredible aerial views of Houston, you can go to the JPMorgan Chase Tower , see the landscape from the 60th floor and enjoy an impressive 17-meter-high iron sculpture by Joan Miró called “Character with birds. ”. From the top of the Tower you can also see other places of interest such as the Reliant Stadium. One of the most unique and original places you can visit in Houston is the Beer Cans House , the home of a man who hated throwing things away and after several years drinking beer and accumulating the cans he decided to put them to use and house is now lined by more than 50,000 cans and is one of the main attractions of the city and a true work of art. A Diogenes syndrome that took advantage of his "mania".
The most photographed place in the city is the Wall of Water (Water wall), a spectacular U-shaped fountain that is almost 20 meters high and the water runs through its external and internal walls. The water used is constantly recycled and is guarded by more than 180 oak trees, making it the ideal place to go for a walk or a picnic.
