Minute Maid Park

Downtown Houston has two major league sports venues. Minute Maid Park (formerly Enron Field), which opened in 2000, is home to the MLB Astros and the Toyota Center home to the NBA Rockets, WNBA Comets, and AHL Aeros opened in 2003. If negotiations with the city are successful, the new Houston Dynamo stadium should open in time for the MLS 2009 Season.

 

The Wortham Theater Center

The Downtown Houston Theatre District is ranked second, only behind New York City, for the number of theater seats. Houston is one of only five cities in the United States with permanent professional resident companies in all of the major performing art disciplines of opera, ballet, music, and theater. Venues in the theater district include the Wortham Center (opera and ballet), the Alley Theatre (theater), the Hobby Center (resident and traveling musical theater, concerts, events), the Verizon Wireless Theater (concerts and events) and Jones Hall (symphony).

 

George R. Brown Convention Center

The George R. Brown Convention Center, with its 1.2 million square feet of flexible exhibit, meeting, and registration space and adjacent hotel, is frequently used for conventions, trade shows, and community meetings.
