When it comes to places to live and work, Houston continues to be one of the most raved about cities in the country. Given the incredible amount of social, educational and business advantages to living in Houston, it’s no wonder the city regularly tops “best of” lists, and if you work in the healthcare field, then the advantages are even greater. Check out the list below to see ten reasons why Houston is one of the coolest cities in America.
Superior Healthcare Facilities
Houston is home to the largest medical center in the world, the Texas Medical Center, which contains more than 20 hospitals, eight research institutions and more than a dozen general and specialized medical schools.
Naturally, with the world’s largest medical center comes healthcare job opportunities that you may not be able to find anywhere else on the planet.
Low Cost of Living
In Houston, stretching a dollar is no problem, as the city has one of the lowest costs of living of any metropolitan area in the country.
High Job Creation
Over the last several years, Houston has had one of the highest levels of job creation in the country, and businesses in the region are thriving.
Fortune 500 Approved
With the high level of job creation comes another interesting statistic. Houston has the most Fortune 500 companies outside of New York City with a total of 26 businesses on the prestigious list.
While Houston may not have surpassed New York City in terms of Fortune 500 companies, it has topped the Big Apple to become to most ethnically diverse city in the country.
As a world-class metropolis, Houston has family-oriented attractions and activities for everyone, giving you plenty to do in your time away from work.
No Income Tax
On top of all the other financial advantages of living in Houston, residents also aren’t required to pay state income tax. No state income tax means that more of your hard-earned money gets to stay in your pocket, where it belongs.
Given Houston’s melting pot culture, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the city has incredibly diverse (and delicious) cuisine options.
Business Insider Approves
“Business Insider” recently proclaimed that Houston was the “Best City in America.” It’s hard to argue with that endorsement.
