Founded in April 2013, Houstonia is the only news, information and entertainment source with content as smart, unique and exciting as the people who call this city home.

From the moment the Allen brothers founded it in 1836, Houston has always been defined by a particular kind of person—bold, passionate, imaginative, plain-spoken, gutsy. Its heart belongs to the pioneer, the wildcatter, the entrepreneur, to anyone with the courage to dream big and the persistence to make one come true.

Houstonia readers enjoy a sophisticated life. They define themselves by their life experiences, their accomplishments, and their interests. Whether they’re making choices related to entertainment, dining, spas/fitness, shopping, travel, museums, theater, the outdoors, or local wine tastings, Houstonia is their principal guide.


Houstonia is the largest local magazine and the only paid circulation local magazine. We are able to provide an average monthly readership of 510,218, with an average monthly circulation of 71,963Houstonia is committed to distribution in the entire Houston area including The Woodlands, Katy, Clear Lake and Sugar Land.
