Pearland's history includes Native Indians who resided in the area and were joined by European settlers in the 16th century. Today, the city is only a 20-minute drive from Houston and less than 15 minutes from both the Texas Medical Center and NASA's Johnson Space Center. Pearland balances its small-town feel with a sophisticated mindset. Residents enjoy shows in the nearby theater district, highly acclaimed cultural amenities, professional sports and a variety of recreational activities. While it is positioned to become the next major employment center in the Houston area, Pearland is also tuned into the environment. Among its forward-thinking initiatives is the Urban Forestry Program, which focuses on maximizing the aesthetic and economic benefits of trees and promotes urban reforestation. For its efforts, Pearland has been recognized as an official Tree City USA.
