Whether it’s baseball or ballet, marathons or museums, Houston has something for you.
For the sports fan, there are plenty of professional sports teams to follow with the Texans, Astros, Rockets and Houston Dynamo, our professional soccer team and winner of back-to-back MLS Cups in 2006 and 2007.
Houston is one of the few U.S. cities with year-round resident companies in all major performing arts with the Houston Symphony Orchestra, Houston Grand Opera, the Houston Ballet and the highly regarded Alley Theatre.
Houston also is on the tour circuit for major concerts at the nearby Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion (just minutes from Harmony), Toyota Center, Verizon Wireless Theater at Bayou Place and the Wortham Theater Center.
More than 200 institutions in Houston are devoted to the arts, science and history. Space Center Houston draws national and international visitors while the Museum of Fine Arts, The Menil Collection, the Contemporary Arts Museum, the Children's Museum of Houston and the Houston Museum of Natural Science are all ranked among the nation’s finest.
When it comes to citywide events, Houston has it covered. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is the world’s largest livestock show and richest regular-season rodeo. Other popular events include The Azalea Trail, a vibrant weekend when Houstonians enjoy the blazes of color blooming in some of the area’s best gardens, the Bayou City Art Festival, Art Car Parade and the Texas Renaissance Festival in nearby Plantersville.
