Location and Weather

Houston’s proximity to the Gulf of Mexico gives it an almost Miami-like climate with mild winters and balmy, warm summers. The average annual temperature is 69 degrees. Its major waterways include the San Jacinto River and a network of creeks and bayous giving the area plenty of recreational water sports to enjoy.

Population, Job Market and Cost of Living

Houston is rapidly growing with a ranking of second amongst all U.S. metro areas for population growth with an 18.2% increase from 2010 to 2018. This gave Houston a population in 2018 of almost 7 million.

Job growth is steady in Houston at a 2.4% increase over last year. The reasons for that is Houston is home to more than two dozen Fortune 500 companies, including Sysco and FMC Technologies. Houston’s long history of oil and gas industry has grown to include manufacturing and health care as well. And with affordable housing and free or inexpensive attractions, the cost of living is low.

If you want to be near the Gulf of Mexico and in a balmy Florida-like climate with a low cost of living, strong centers for manufacturing and health care which has led to a growing job market, then Houston is a great place to live.
