Houston Highlights. Houston is one of only a few U.S. cities with resident professional companies in the four disciplines of the performing arts: ballet, opera, symphony, and theater.  In addition, there are 19 museums close to downtown in the pedestrian-friendly Museum District.  The Houston Aquarium is a popular tourist attraction, and the Houston Rodeo is on during the conference time.  In addition, Houston is considered to have one of the best culinary scenes in the country, and home teams offer year-round competition and high-energy action for loyal sports afficionados.
