Harris County is a wonderful community in which to work, live and raise a family. Your new home county is the third most populous in America, with more residents than 23 other states. You share 1,778 square miles of beautiful Texas landscape with almost four million neighbors who also call Harris County home.
You are now living in a vibrant, growing community that has something for everyone. Whether you enjoy live theater, music, museums, sporting events or exquisite cuisine, you will have many options from which to choose. The county commissioners supervise parks and recreation facilities that are world-class, and because of our climate, you can jog, cycle, golf and participate in many other sports year-round.
The people of Harris County are warm and friendly, with a strong community spirit. There is a can-do attitude in the business community, and our local elected officials work together to improve the quality of life for everyone. Keeping up with explosive growth while keeping taxes low is a challenge, and Harris County is meeting the challenge.
Harris County is a special place. All of us in county government are glad you are here.
