ImageLike any other city, crime exists in Houston as well. The crime rate has increased following the influx of the Hurricane Katrina evacuees, so it is advisable to remain vigilant at all times.

It is important to have proper medical insurance when traveling to the United States. Medical expenses can be high; however an emergency room in the United States is required to see a patient, even if they do not have medical insurance. 

You should carry your own supply of necessary medication and prescriptions. If you run out of them during your stay, then you can get additional supplies from the many pharmacies located all over Houston.
