Orientation and Maps
(Houston, Texas (TX), USA)
A sprawling city full of energy and life, Houston is one of the largest cities in the whole of the United States, featuring a population exceeding two million. With so many people living here, Houston can be a little hectic at times, but this is all part of the charm in this enormous metropolis. Home to a series of notable districts, neighborhoods and small towns, Houston has plenty on offer, including nearby coastal attractions, stretches of sandy beachfronts, and good surfing conditions.
Houston's number two airport, after the largest George Bush Airport (IAH), the city's William P Hobby Airport (HOU) is located to the southeast, off the I-45 interstate. An important domestic transport hub in this part of Texas, the William P Hobby Airport is easy to reach and close to the South Houston area and the Pasadena Plaza Shopping Center. Both of the city's airports are connected to the downtown district by a regular shuttle van service, provided by Express Shuttle USA.
