I doubt it. I hated the darn city for 3 years before I warmed up to it.

I think it is only when you miss the benefits of living here that you miss it.

We do have a Korean area though, even tho it is small. There are a couple of restaurants and stores in Korea Town.

Houston is just too massive to appreciate on a wedding tour

Depends on you and how open minded you are to a new place.

Summer is probably the worst time to see it, it gets hot for those 3 months of the year.

Also when you visit, keep these things in mind and you'll be able to avoid the complaints for it:
- The freeways and what you see off them are ugly, venture off the freeways and see some of the Inner Loop neighborhoods
- Remember it gets hot, you shouldn't go there expecting it to be Los Angeles weather
- Remember to ask questions about dining, where to visit, & other concerns on City-Data, we'll be happy to address them.

This has been an enjoyable thread. Alot of great info and statistics. Some were even correct. Houston city population will eclipse Chicago in about 10-12 years if trends stay the same. The metro areas will be at the same level in about 30-35 years if current trends stay the same. And yes, when Houston does eclipse Chicago in population ranking at #3 it will be a huge marketing boon to the city of Houston and the state of Texas. We all have a huge sense of pride down here in Texas.

People are just interested in what is current and imminent. I do agree though, there are alot of threads. Enjoy them while you can.

I think Houston can soon overtake Chicago, but not Dallas or any other city like a San Antonio or Phoenix.

Isn't Houston already bigger than San Antonio and Phoenix?
