What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Houston

There are many local businesses, I live in a gentrified neighborhood. There's many good restaurants and bars to visit with friends

i dont like anything about this area. if it wasnt for family this area would be highly trash and depressing.

I love the friendliness of all of the residents. I love the detailed holiday decorations during holiday time. I love how safe I feel and close I am to stores and everything.

How it's mainly quiet and mostly others would respect the boundaries of others, also how close by mostly stores are

I am in an older section of the neighborhood, so the trees are fully grown and well established. I like that the neighborhood is close to shopping and convenient to major roadways to access the city. I like the school district we are in.

first suburb of downtown Houston; oldest homes are from the 1890's; lots of long term businesses are no longer here been rep;aced by urban with old

All About

Living in Houston, TX

Getting to Know Houston

Known for the Johnson Space Center, loved for the Houston Rockets and visited for the annual Livestock Show and Rodeo, there's always something interesting to do in Houston. As a resident, you'll come to appreciate all of these attractions and more. There's much to learn, so start exploring now. 

Houston neighborhoods

The first step to finding good Houston apartments is to understand Houston neighborhoods. Here are a few to get you started on your search: 

  • Montrose: Montrose is defined by its character. Though some residents say it isn't quite as weird as it used to be, it's still a major hotspot for the arts and quirky bars. 
  • Heights: This was one of the first planned communities in the city, and so offers a different experience than the rest of the city. If you're looking for somewhere inside the Loop to find running trails or even just a backyard, you'll be able to find it there. There are also many walkable shopping areas being developed, giving you many interesting places to live or visit. 
  • Midtown: Do you like walkable areas? This is one of the few truly walkable, mixed-use areas in the city. It also has a great selection of bars and restaurants, having something to cater to almost anyone's tastes. 
  • West University: If you're looking for a place to raise a family, this is a good one. It's on the expensive side, but close to the city, has some of the best schools in Texas and has many places, like restaurants, that cater specifically to kids and families. 
  • Spring Branch: This is where you go to compromise between city and suburban life. It's located just outside of The Loop, but it still has the diversity of people and places you expect from living in the city. 

Educational opportunities

If you're interested in moving to the city for a great education, you'll have many options in Houston. With over 60 colleges and universities in the metro area and another 100 trade, vocational and business schools nearby, the possibilities are extraordinary. 

Outdoor entertainment

When you want to escape your day to day life, Houston gives you places to go. Head for Galveston Beach, where you can soak up the sun and let the stress of the work week melt away on miles of scenic coastline. If you're up for an outdoor adventure, a couple of hours northeast of Houston is the Big Thicket National Preserve, where you can hike, kayak or nature watch. 

Cultural attractions

Houston's Museum District is just what it sounds like. Located just southwest of the Downtown area, it's home to 18 cultural institutions in a gorgeous, tree-lined neighborhood. Visit the nation's sixth-largest art museum or Houston's first and only 4D theater. The best part? More than a dozen of these attractions are free for locals and visitors alike.

If you're into the performing arts, there's the downtown Theater District. Spanning 17 blocks with more than 13,000 seats, you'll find a diverse assortment of theaters offering headline plays, independent shows and live musical performances, perfect for theater buffs and novices alike. 

Sports venues

If you like baseball, check out an Astros game at the beautiful Minute Maid Park. With a retractable roof, you'll be able to enjoy open-air seating on balmy summer days or shelter from rainy conditions on not-so-nice evenings. If you prefer soccer, head to a Dynamos game at the University of Houston's TDECU Stadium. If basketball is your thing, watch the Rockets at the Toyota Center, or the Aeros if you're more into hockey. If you're big on football, the Texans play at NRG Park, so you have no shortage of options. . 

Fine dining

Whether you're a food fanatic or simply prefer to eat out most days of the week, there are plenty of places to help you enjoy a great meal outside of your Houston apartments. With more than 8,000 restaurants representing delicious cuisine from 35 countries and American regions, you're bound to find something that suits your fancy, whether you're dining alone, with a date or with the entire family. 

Day Trips

If you want to get out of the city entirely, you have choices there too. The beaches at Galveston are about an hour away. If you want to go to a much stranger city, Austin is about a two and a half hour drive away.
