Houston is the fourth largest city in the United States and is home to 42 missions.
San Francisco is home to 42 missions.
Miami is home to 36 diplomatic missions. Due to its location, many Latin American and Caribbean countries maintain consulates there.

Other cities with diplomatic missions
Many cities have only one or two consulates; these are often with Mexico (which has 50 offices in the United States), or Canada (which has 17).
Cities with Mexican consulates only (22)
Due to the large number of Mexican immigrants in the United States, Mexico has 50 diplomatic missions in the United States, more than any country has with any other country. Many of these are smaller cities in the southwestern United States, including a number of border towns.
Countries without formal diplomatic missions to the United States
Several countries do not have formal diplomatic missions accredited to the United States. Consular duties for each country, except Kiribati and non-UN members, are instead managed by their respective diplomatic missions to the United Nations in New York.
