Houston is the largest city in Texas and the center of its second-largest metropolitan area after Dallas-Fort Worth. It's located in the eastern part of the state, on a river near its mouth in Galveston Bay, an inlet of the Gulf of Mexico. Houston is home to the Johnson Space Center, bustling museums, a number of prominent universities, world-class retractable roof stadiums, a burgeoning medical sector, and one of the USA's busiest seaports. More than anything though, this metropolis is known as the capital of the worldwide energy industry, a status which is reflected both in the city's towering skyscrapers as well as the gigantic refineries and petrochemical factories lined up along its Gulf of Mexico coastline. Check out this collection of drone videos from this bustling city, which was the initial capital of the Republic of Texas during the interlude between achieving independence from Mexico and joining the Union.
