With many fortune 500 companies now relocating to Houston, its no wonder why this southern gem is such a well kept secret and BOOMING so fast. It is predicted that by 2020, Houston will surpass Los Angeles, Chicago and even New York in population.

Go Texas!!

Oh I'm certain it's got a long way to go before it surpasses New York City.

For all the talk about Houston, DFW is still the bigger metro area, and looks to remain that way for a while. And the quickest-growing Texas metro in percentage population terms remains Austin, which is why traffic is so ungodly horrible there despite its relatively small size.

Houston has a population of 2.1 million. New York City's population is 8.3 million. No chance Houston is going to surpass NYC in population.

So much in Houston

Baseball, soccer, the Space Program, the energy industry(one reason I've applied for jobs located in Houston), The Galleria(with an ice skating rink inside), the Astrodome.

Houston also gave us George Foreman, Phylicia Rashad, Dan Rather, Dennis Quaid, Mary Kay Ash(founder of Mary Kay), Joel Osteen, Renee Zellweger, Jennifer Garner.
