    Houston is now the 4th largest city in the U.S. and home to more than 2 million residents. There’s a lot of “world class” happening here from pro sports to the arts, shopping and cuisine. It’s a great place for SmartHunts’ Houston scavenger hunt!

    Award winning medical facilities and 25 Fortune 500 companies make their home here. First rate museums are the norm, the parks are exceptional and the zoo second only to one. And lest we forget, that whole “space program” thing.
