“Houston is an hour away from Houston”

"Houston is an hour away from Houston” is a popular saying for two reasons: (1) Houston is the largest city in the United States in total area, and (2) there is a lot of traffic.

“It takes an hour just to get from Houston to Houston” was posted on Twitter by DenaeFairy on Aril 9, 2017. “Houston is actually an hour away from Houston..” was posted on Twitter by Johnny Forte on May 22, 2018. “Lol someone said Houston is an hour away from Houston” was posted on Twitter by Codename on May 24, 2018. “Just read a post ‘Houston is an hour away from Houston’ LOL #FACTS” was posted on Twitter by Jo Jo on May 25, 2018.

“As the old traffic joke goes, ‘Houston is an hour away from Houston’” was printed in the Houston (TX) Chronicle on August 3, 2018. “Fact: Houston is an hour away from Houston” was posted on Twitter by Sorry, I’m Texan on January 15, 2019.

“Houston is two hours away from Houston” is a similar saying.


Wikipedia: Houston
Houston (/ˈhjuːstən/ HEW-stən) is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Texas, fourth-most populous city in the United States, most populous city in the Southern United States, as well as the sixth-most populous in North America, with an estimated population of 2,320,268 in 2019. Located in Southeast Texas near Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, it is the seat of Harris County and the principal city of the Greater Houston metropolitan area, which is the fifth-most populous metropolitan statistical area in the United States. Houston is the southeast anchor of the greater megaregion known as the Texas Triangle.

Comprising a total area of 637.4 square miles (1,651 km2), Houston is the eighth-most expansive city in the United States (including consolidated city-counties). It is the largest city in the United States by total area, whose government is not consolidated with a county, parish, or borough. Though primarily in Harris County, small portions of the city extend into Fort Bend and Montgomery counties, bordering other principal communities of Greater Houston such as Sugar Land and The Woodlands.

When people say they want to see a home in Houston, “Where in Houston, because Houston is an hour away from Houston.”

When speaking to someone unfamiliar with Houston’s sprawl, most people who live in the area won’t say they live in Cypress, Baytown, or Alvin but will most likely just say “Houston” and then add in that they really live in a suburb of the city.

As the old traffic joke goes, “Houston is an hour away from Houston.”

I like the burbs in concept and practice, although it has made houston very sprawl-y.

Sprawl alot.
We joke that Houston is an hour away from houston its so sprawled.
What that means is that a HSR from houston to dallas would almost REQUIRE multiple stops to cover and service EVERY population hot spot within those areas.
There just isnt a central place where…

Growing up a little outside of Houston, driving an hour is just how you get places. Hell, Houston is an hour away from Houston.
