moving to Houston Texas:  The city of Houston covers a land area of 1397.6 sq km (539.6 sq mi). Is the fourth largest city in America and Texas largest city in population and is the largest in the country without zoning laws, so businesses are allowed to operate within residential neighborhoods. 
The City of Houston actually spreads over three counties: Harris, Fort Bend and Montgomery. The city is in southeastern Texas and the seat of Harris County. Located at the head of the Houston Ship Channel, which links the city to the Gulf of Mexico.
Houston is also home to the largest health care center in the world. More than 4.5 million patients are treated annually at the 42 nonprofit institutions that comprise the world famous Texas Medical Center. Houston's population climbed from 1,630,553 in 1990 to 1,953,631 in 2000. The Houston Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Area grew from 3,731,000 in 1990 to 4,670,000 in 2000, and 5.2 million inhabitants in mid-2004. Quoted as "the Most Popular City to Relocate," with more than 5 million people living in the Houston Metropolitan Areas. The city is the largest city in the United States which does not have zoning laws.

Houston's climate is classified as being humid subtropical. The city is located in the gulf coastal plains biome, and the vegetation is classified as a temperate grassland. Much of Houston was built on forested land, marshes or prarie, all of which can still be seen in surrounding areas. Average yearly precipitation levels range from 36 to 48 inches (900 to 1200 mm). Prevailing winds are from the south and southeast during most of the year, bringing heat from the deserts of Mexico and moisture from the Gulf of Mexico.

In summertime, daily high temperatures are in the 90 to 105 °F (32 to 41 °C) range throughout much of July and August. The air tends to feel still and the humidity often 90 to 100% relative humidity makes the air feel hotter than it really is.  The coolest period is usually in January, when north winds bring winter rains. Snow is almost unheard of, and typically does not accumulate when it is seen.relocation map moving to Houston Tx.

Houston has four major bayous passing through the city. The Buffalo Bayou, which runs into downtown, the Brays Bayou, which runs along the Texas Medical Center, White Oak Bayou runs through the Heights and near northwest area and the Sims Bayou in the south of Houston merge in downtown Houston into the Houston Ship Channel. The Ship Channel goes past Galveston, Texas into the Gulf of Mexico.

Most of Houston is very flat and is about fifty feet above sea level in elevation; the Houston Heights area has the highest elevation in the city. The city once relied on groundwater for its water needs. Land subsidence forced the city to turn to ground-level water sources such as Lake Houston.

Houston's climate is often compared to that of Dallas, Texas. Dallas has a hot and dry climate while Houston has a hot and humid climate. While Dallas gets hotter temperatures, Houstons heat index is often higher.
