DOWNTOWN                                                                                             - Houston
Houston began at Allen’s Landing on Buffalo Bayou, the point at which the city’s founders, the Allen brothers, stepped ashore in 1836 after a journey up-bayou from Galveston. As illustrated by a broad sheet sent north to attract settlers, the Allens’ marketing embellished a few facts. No matter; people came. Allen’s Landing today is part of Downtown Houston, generally defined as bordered by I-45 on the west and south, Hwy 59/I-69 on the east, and I-10 on the north. Houston’s theater district is in Downtown and includes Theater Under the Stars (TUTS) at the Hobby Center; the Houston Symphony and Broadway Series at Jones Hall; off-Broadway productions at Alley Theater; and the Houston Ballet and Houston Grand Opera at Wortham Center. Entertainment and shopping complexes include Bayou Place, The Aquarium, The Pavilion and House of Blues, and the Park Shops. Downtown’s southwest side includes the historic homes of Sam Houston Park, the Heritage Society, Houston City Hall and Visitors Center, the Julia Ideson Library for Historical Collections, and the Houston Public Library Downtown Branch. Downtown’s east side offers Minute Maid Park, the home of the Houston Astros; Discovery Green Park and the George R. Brown Convention Center; BBVA Compass Stadium, home of the Houston Dynamo Houston Dash Professional Soccer teams; and Toyota Center, home to the Houston Rockets and a concert venue. The Main Street Rail Line will connect to the South Line to provide light-rail service from Loop 610-South through the Texas Medical Center to the University of Houston Downtown, and from the Hobby Center to BBVA Compass Stadium out to the University of Houston main campus.
