A new theme park has opened its doors in Houston.
This happiest-place-on-earth boasts plenty of eye candy, but it doesn’t have wild thrill rides, carnival games or darling merry-go-rounds. Rather, it plays off one of the city’s economic strengths: Real estate.
While the better part of the United States was crumbling under the goo of a burst real estate bubble, Houstonians were relatively content with the state of affairs in their hometown. Not unaffected, but much better off than California, Nevada and, of course, Florida. Builders and financial services companies rose and fell, though a select few, including Design Tech Homes, navigated the shaky landscape while laying a strong foundation that would ensure it arrived on the other side — with flying colors.
Step right up to MainStreet America, located on the access road of Interstate 45 just north of Beltway 8, where adult admission is $10 any day of the week.
Think of MainStreet America as a theme park for anyone with a penchant for home design.
