Galleria Area??

by randv

We are relocating from Tampa and will be flying out next week to look for apts to rent for the 1st year. The office is on Loops Central Dr. Is the Galleria area good? What about Sugarland??

RE: Galleria Area??

by Mari6625

The Galleria area is a great area. Houses in the area are very expensive though. As well as any townhomes or condos that you are wanting to buy. Renting in the galleria is not that bad. Youcan find something between 600-1000 a month. Sugarland is more of a suburb and very beautiful. there are many new homes being built out in that area.

RE: Galleria Area??

by reyescd

Galleria is an awesome area but always need to use precaution because there are SO many people that visit that area. Crime does tend to be high. I highly recommend an apartment complex which you can probably find online called Westcreek @ River Oaks. It sits 1 block off of Westheimer and two blocks from the Galleria. Awesome location, easy to get around, older complex but very well maintained. Mostly mid 20's to late 40's. In 2000, it was running around $ 600.00, I have no clue what it is now.

Sugarland is a great area, out in the suburbs a bit. Lots of traffic if you need to come into town for anything.

You might also consider an area called Westchase which is at the opposite end of Westheimer. More economical, relatively safe and lots of things to do yet still close enough to town to do anything that you want.

Hope this helps.

In terms of crime, I would say that the Galleria area is safer than Westchase. See if you can find something near Woodway/Voss. There are groupings of apartments in that area and privately-owned condos that are usually for rent. In particular, use a local real estate agent to see if you can find something off of Ripple Creek. It is a fantastic area - quiet, green, near shopping/restaurants, etc.

Some of the complexes you'll want to check are Bayou Glen, Woodway Glen, etc. I lived in this area twice - once with a roommate and then with my wife (our first apartment). Kerry Glen, for example, is right along the bayou and behind a church. Most of the residents have been there for a long time so it is very stable. Hakeem Olajuwon used to own two condos there and we would sometimes see him or Charles Barkley.

I drive by it every day and it is safe and very community-oriented. Trust me - you can't go wrong. If you need a realtor, let me know. It's worth the extra effort to get one of these places.

Travel Tips for Houston

Be careful in inner city...

by pocketbug

Be careful in inner city Houston. There are alot of gangs. Do not, and I mean do not, wear red or blue. Also keep your ball cap forward. to be on the safe side don't walk the streets alone, or at night. Oh, and don't start a conversation with a stranger...not a good idea.

Houston's largest selection of wine and liquors

by XenoHumph about Specs Liquor Warehouse

Specs is the main liquor distributor in Houston with hundreds of stores throughout the area. The particular one I want to describe here is their warehouse, their main big store. It is huge and wonderful with the largest selection of wine and spirits from all over the world you could have dreamed of!! The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. They also have gourmet food (cheese, chocolates,...). Wine, beer, liquors of all type, taste and age, for all budgets. The large range of selection allows for any budget to shop happily there! For some strange reason, they charge 5% extra if you use a credit card instead of cash.

Nothing special but plenty good

by WFTR about Cattleguard Restaurant & Bar

The Cattleguard is one of many steakhouses that one can find in Houston. It is not particularly noteworthy, but the food is very good. Service is quick, and the food comes fairly quickly. I wouldn't drive across Houston to eat there, but if one is looking for a good steakhouse in the I-10 and Hwy 6 area, it's a great choice.

The inside is typical steakhouse decor. The walls are wood paneling with dark wood beams all around. The walls are decorated with cowboy movie posters and a few imitation western artifacts. The bar area has a TV that will likely be playing whatever sports is on at the moment.

When I was there, I had the quail, but I've heard good things from those who've had other items. My quail was very good. I'll eat there again on future trips, and I'll update with other good items.

good fajitas

by John_P_LSU about Fajita Flats

This restaurant is somewhat of a "dive". Its decorated so-so, nothing special to look at. There is, however, a nice outdoor patio. And the people are "lively and friendly." There is a juke box also. But the food is excellent! They've been in business since 1988. Fajitas!! Fresh flour tortillas, grilled beef, chicken, peppers and onions. And a great guacamole! They have Happy Hours too!

Houston Grand Opera
