Houston is the fourth largest city in the US and has 7 of the 10 tallest skyscrapers in Texas, the tallest of the skyline high rises being the JP Morgan Chase Tower at 1002 feet. With so many buildings rising into the sky, panoramas and cityscapes are easy to come by. Houston is home to over 2 million people, and if you’ve driven on the highways that run through the city, you’d believe it. The city is the largest in the Lone Star State and offers an array of activities and entertainment, including fine arts, outdoor fun, and professional sports teams.
Houston came into existence in 1836 when two men from New York purchased over 6,000 acres along Buffalo Bayou to begin a city. Named after General Sam Houston, the city of Houston became official in 1837, and the rest is history. H-town became a commercial hub, and by the early 1900s, after years of digging channels, it also became a port town. Only one thing hindered its growth – excessive heat and humidity. So with the advent of air conditioning in the 1950s, companies finally began to relocate and Houston expanded exponentially.
We have many skyline and cityscape and aerial images of the Houston area like the downtown, the theater district, the Discovery Green Park, Eleanor Tinsley Park, George Brown Convention Center, along with the many high rises skyscrapers buildings like the JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo Plaza, and the Williams Tower that help create this nice skyline for this city viewed from the buffalo bayou and Elanor Tinsley park. We also have photos along the hike and bike trails, and other point of interest. This gallery also includes the Fred Hartman bridge, the San Jacinto Monument, and Battle Ship Texas along with many other points of interest.
