Houston earns top placement in city ranking
Educated, diverse and hard-working are just some of the adjectives used to describe Houston, which has been named one of the world’s best cities, according to a 2023 World’s Best Cities Report. The city ranked 42 out of 100 and is the highest-ranking Texan city on this year’s list. In total, only 25 US cities earned selection for the 2023 report.
“Houston has been called a world in a city and a city of the world thanks to the rich culture and ethnically diverse backgrounds of our residents,” said Michael Heckman, president and CEO of Houston First Corporation. “To continually be recognised as one of the world’s most welcoming and diverse cities is something to be proud of, and we invite all to discover for themselves what makes Houston such a great city to experience.”
Earlier this year, Houston was called ‘America’s stealthy powerhouse on the rise’ after climbing six spots on the 2022 list of America’s Best Cities. In 2022, 13 Houston chefs were recognised by The James Beard Foundation, and the city garnered global attention after the Houston Astros won the 2022 World Series for a second time.
The World’s Best Cities Report is an annual ranking conducted by Resonance, a leading advisor in tourism, real estate and economic development.
