Apartments in Downtown Houston, TX

If you're interested in living close to a thriving major metropolis, look no further than the apartments in Downtown Houston, Texas. This part of Houston is the city's central business district, a pedestrian-friendly environment with an array of sidewalks, tunnels and skywalks. The location is ideal for both families and single professionals.


There are many things to do once you've settled into your Downtown Houston apartment. There are a few museums to choose from, including the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. This institution celebrates and displays exciting pieces of art from the region, nation and beyond. The museum also has a teen council that organizes youth-oriented programs and events, so this makes it a great resource for teens in the family. If you're looking for some outdoor fun, head on over to Discovery Green, near the George R. Brown Convention Center. This park, developed by the Houston Downtown Park Conservancy, includes restaurants, a kids' play area, man-made lake and even two dog runs. This is the perfect place for a family gathering or for a day off alone to enjoy the nice weather.


If you're moving your family into an apartment in Downtown Houston, there is a great education system in the area. The Young Scholars Academy for Excellence is a reputable institution for children in pre-kindergarten to eighth grade, preparing them with a solid educational foundation for entrance into high school. If you're looking for a postsecondary education in the neighborhood, look to the University of Houston Downtown, a diverse institution offering many bachelor and graduate degrees in a variety of academic disciplines. The Houston Public Library, on McKinney Street, takes pride in offering its services to the biggest city in the state, and in its large quarters you can find many nooks great for studying, enjoying a book or relaxing with the family.


Wondering how you'll get around once you're in your Downtown Houston apartment? A unique asset of public transportation is the city's Greenlink, which offers bus service Monday through Friday, and is free. These buses run on Compressed Natural Gas, which makes them a clean and environmentally friendly transportation option. If you drive, know that Houston is the hub of a highway wheel that includes Interstates 610, 45, 10 and 69.
