5 Pros And Cons Of Living In Houston

Houston is one of the best cities in the world, we all know it. There are upsides and downsides to living in Houston and it doesn't every really change. Here's a list of the pros and cons of living in Houston...

1. Pro - The amount of restaurants and amazing food here is ridiculous.

Sometimes we get "bored" but that's because we don't venture out enough. I personally love trying new food but when the time comes to go try new restaurants, I just go running back to the ones I know and love.

2. Con - The weather here isn't the best.

It doesn't get cold in the winter, fall and spring are there but not enough to declare them seasons in this city, and summer is boiling hot. You can probably cook an egg on the street in the middle of July if you tried. If it rains once, you know it's going to rain for days and there will be no end to it. When it's sunny, the sun is beating down so hard it burns you in a matter of minutes. The best part (not literally) is the humidity. Houston and humidity were made to go together without humidity, there's no Houston.

3. Pro - Houston is known for it's culture.

The art around town is breathtakingly beautiful as it varies from graffiti walls to Houston pride to crazy sculptures. You will never be bored driving around Downtown Houston as there's always something new to see! The music in Houston is forever growing and the number of celebrities that are from Houston is amazing. Tom Ford, Beyonce, Hilary Duff, Wes Anderson, and Travis Scott are just a few of the most famous ones.

4. Con - Houston traffic is absolute madness.

If you get stuck during rush hour, don't expect to be home for at least an hour and a half. Also, if you didn't already have a headache then you sure will by the time you get home!

5. Pro - There's always something to do in Houston.

If you're bored you can go bowling, go to a park, drive around downtown, try new coffee shops. Sometimes it feels like there's nothing to do but there's more than enough it just takes a little driving and some time!

As you can see, there are more pros than cons, which definitely goes to show that Houston is a wonderful city. It just seems boring to the people who have lived here their entire lives but overall it's great and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else!
