Houston, the fourth largest city in the nation, is a dynamic and diverse community, driven by a wide range of industries that include medical, energy, and high-technology and is home to one of the youngest populations in the nation. The region's climate is humid and sub-tropical, however, in October, temperatures average 82F. Houston's art community is vibrant and active with many non-profit spaces as well as galleries dedicated supporting artists of every kind. The Houston Museum District attracts more than 7 million people a year to its 19 museums. Situated between Houston and Galveston is Texas City, a busy deep-water port. This small town specializes in petrochemical refining and manufacturing and boasts the largest man-made fishing pier that extends five miles into the mouth of Galveston bay. It is home to College of The Mainland, a learning-centered, comprehensive community college dedicated to student success and the intellectual and economic prosperity of the diverse communities they serve.A quick 15-minute drive south of Texas City lies Galveston, a coastal island community connected to the mainland via bridge. It is a favorite and quick get-away for locals as well as a tourist destination. Galveston has more than 30 miles of beaches and over 60 historical buildings. The historic downtown district is home to the Galveston Arts Center and many other galleries, which collectively host a monthly art walk.
