Space City. Bayou City. Hustletown. Clutch City. Crush City. What's the story behind all these nicknames? 111 Places is your guide to the hidden stories behind Houston's monikers, stereotypes, and statistics.
As America's most diverse city, this book provides 111 different ways to explore Htown. 111 Places in Houston That You Must Not Miss is a readable tour of places representing the distinct personalities making up the population of the nation's fourth largest city.
Traverse Houston's massive landscape of strip malls and interstates and you will find a city that not only embraces diversity, but transforms it into its own culture where Hindu temples take up office space, an enterprising Vietnamese jeweller supplies the hip hop scene with bling, and one man's mission to cover his house in beer cans is now a museum. Whether you're a native Houstonian or a newcomer, this book serves as both a good read and a resource for getting to know the city - one unique place at a time.
