Houston’s downtown is a hub of business activity, entertainment and nightlife. For example, Houston is one of only five cities in the United States with professional residential companies of all major performing arts disciplines – you’ll find opera, ballet, music and theater here. In fact, you’ll find no other city besides New York with a higher concentration of theater seats in a downtown area than Houston.
If arts aren't your thing, downtown Houston also has lots of sports. Houston is home to the Astros baseball team, and the NBA’s Houston Rockets as well as a hockey team, football team and soccer team.
