Houstonians love being from Houston! This huge city is a puzzle of connected areas that have taken on their own personalities through history and progress. Every Houston neighborhood character and personality just like people do.


Take the quiz!


Do You Love Houston?


The amazing food and culture here did not happen by accident. It happened with the hard work of innovators, investors, immigrants, and creators that lived out their destiny in this city.


Each neighborhood took on the character of the families that lived in them for years. It is their stories that we are now blessed to benefit from as the city grows. It would serve us well as residents to research and remember the stories that created the city. Loving Houston is loving the people that build it both with their hands and with their soul.
