Houston, located in Southeastern Texas, is the hub of the oil and gas industries but it's also a major center for manufacturing, health care, and some of the state's best universities. The region is very affordable and according to U.S. News, ranks as the 20th best place to live in the country. Local residents would argue that it's number one since you'll be hard pressed to find a city that's cleaner, friendlier, and more on the rise than Houston.
