We weren't surprised to find that Houston's residents exemplify great taste in diamond engagement rings. More than in any other large city, Houstonians are more likely to choose an internally flawless diamond and have a slightly larger preference for an emerald shape.
When residents here are deciding on where to propose, they have a plethora of options. Williams Tower Water Wall at the Galleria sets a romantic backdrop with its 64-story waterfall. It's hard to beat the peacefulness of a picnic amongst the trees at Hermann Park. The Houston Arboretum is full of places to take a knee, perhaps the best being amidst the fragrant flowers at the Sensory Garden. For science lovers, nothing can beat a proposal amongst the dinosaur fossils and butterfly collection at the Houston Museum of Science. Discovery Green is also a perfect oasis of foliage nestled along the buildings of downtown.
