Re: moving to Houston

by taralinny

Hi, I don't know if you've already moved here, but I assume you have since you posted in January. But just in case...the area of Houston you described is called the River Oaks-Memorial area. You should also be close to Allen Parkway, no? I am very familiar with that area and it is easily the only way to go if you want to live "inside the loop" (Loop 610, to be exact). Both River Oaks and Memorial have a reputation for being the upper-class ritzy part of the inner city--and River Oaks has one of the richest ZIP codes in the US...not that that is too important to you. That being said, by living there you will have easy access to downtown. If you work in downtown you'll have a five minute commute...versus people coming from the suburbs who will drive 30 minutes or more. You will be right in the middle of great shopping and eating, as well as the nightlife in Houston. The Galleria is a 5-10 minute drive (depending on what time of day), the Rice Village (a more eclectic shopping/dining area) is also 5-10 minutes away. The "hip" places to enjoy going out are downtown, midtown (where I live) and the Rice Village. You will have easy access to the Texas Medical Center, which is the largest medical/research venue in the world. There is also a really nice zoo located right in the middle of the city. If you like sports, you are in luck. Minute Maid Park (Astros baseball) and the Toyota Center (Rockets basketball) are both located IN downtown (again--immediately adjacent to your neighborhood. Reliant Stadium (NFL - the Texans) is also located nearby...between the Medical Center and the Rice Village area. Houston, although it has many drawbacks, does have a lot to offer. Keep in mind that Houston is a younger city with one of the youngest populations in the US. If you have young children or want a more peaceful, relaxed setting, I would suggest trying the Pearland area. Pearland is a nice, newer suburb that can be as near as 15-minute drive to downtown...easily the best and fastest suburb commute. But if you are already in River Oaks, you made a good choice. In fact, I'm pretty sure I know exactly which apartment complex you'll be in. Just don't forget to pack lightweight clothing (for the heat) and mosquito spray! Welcome to Houston!

Travel Tips for Houston

Air Conditioning

by H-TownJourneyman

If you have never been to Houston during the summer months, well, I'll just tell you that it gets hot, very hot. And with humidity levels also extremely high, it often feels like a sauna outside. I have seen many people from not-so-hot places come to Houston in August, and look like they were going to melt! So during these months, the air conditioner is a way of life here. At home, in the car, at work, wherever you go, air conditioning will be your best friend. That, and anti-perspirant! :)

Cheap Books

by msbrandysue about Half Price Books

Half Price Books is a chain of used books. Some people buy here and some people sell their books here. I love this place. The books are in good quality or they don't buy them from others.

You know how so many people hunt for diamonds or gold or buried treasure in the ocean? Well, I hunt for books! I can spend hours in here on the floor looking for buried treasures of my own and no one will bug you...other than other customers trying to find those treasures before you.

I like the later hours too....
Store Hours
Monday - Thursday 9 a.m.- 10 p.m.
Friday - Saturday 9 a.m.- 11 p.m.
Sunday 10 a.m.- 8 p.m

Also, this company does a lot of literacy outreach with adult and children literacy work. They also give out free boxes of books to teachers at the beginning of the school year. I like when I'm contributing to a generous company....

There are a bunch in the area so check the website for one closer to where you are! Books...

Be sure to check the clearance area before purchasing other items as you might find what you're looking for cheaper.

They also have a good selection of VHS, audiobooks, and DVDs. Half the printed cost on the book or lower if on clearance

Fancy dining overlooking sailboats Clear Lake Area

by XenoHumph about Opus Bistro

Lovely restaurant serving American/Italian fare, wide range of fish and meat dishes, with a good wine menu. The waiters are extremely nice and helpful. They really care about making your dining experience enjoyable and are not your average high school or college kid making a buck, they are either the owners or professionals. I particularly love the view from the dining room (or from the terrace) because it overlooks a small marina. Some people come in by boat! Most Houston restaurants overlook an ugly parking lot, not this one! Perfect restaurant for a romantic evening. The terrace must be great during the cooler months (October to April). On the Saturday night we went, most of the crowd was in their 50' or older, but there were a few younger couples. Only downside: a touch noisy because of the reflecting walls, maybe adding some drapes or carpet would help.
Reservations recommended. Appetizers: I loved my crab salad that had mangoes, tomatoes, and basil, and was fresh and delicious. My husband loved the crab cakes.
Main dish: My veal New Orleans was delicious, and my husband enjoyed his steak very much.
Wine: I recommend the Goldschmidt California Cabernet Sauvignon.

San Jacinto Monument

by XenoHumph

San Jacinto Monument is a needle-like pyramid commemorating a famous battle between Texans and Mexicans in 1836 at this very site which ended with Texas gaining its independance. So what's to see there?
Go up the monument, you'll have a great view on the ship channel (all the raffineries and huge tankers make an amazing site), downtown Houston in the background and the surrounding preserved wet lands.
Texas History Museum: very nice museum about the history of Texas from the Spanish conquest to now, with explanation panels and historical objects.
Battleship Texas: visit an old war ship that participated in both World War I and II. For information on Battleship Texas, go to http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/park/battlesh/.

Opened daily. To go up the monument to see the view costs $3 per person, and the visit to Battleship Texas is $5 per person. A slide show called "Texas forever" costs $3.50 per person. Museum, surrounding grounds and parking are free.
