“Houston is two hours 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. Some expressions double this time to two hours.

“Just took 2 hours to get from Houston to Houston” was posted on Twitter by rack daddy on May 23, 2018. “houston is 2 hours away from houston without traffic” was posted on Twitter by asiya on February 26, 2019. “Houston is 2 hours away from Houston lol” was posted on Twitter by 饾摚饾摫饾摬饾摤饾摯, 饾摚饾摂饾摟饾搻饾摙 on August 3, 2019. “Houston is two hours away from Houston” was posted on Twitter by Meshell Thee Stallion on September 6, 2019.


Wikipedia: Houston
Houston (/藞hju藧st蓹n/ HEW-st蓹n) 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.
