Where to rent in Houston
Hi all, I am moving to Houston to take a job at MD Anderson cancer center. I intend to rent for the first year and was wondering on what areas you guys would suggest to live or can suggest a nice apartment complex. I would like to be on the bus or train line, I have noticed it is hard to find places that dont seem to have a problem with crime, refugees from New Orleans etc. The area around Anderson seems to be somewhat ugly. How far out into the burbs does the train system go. Also how about flooding, the flood maps seem to show that the west part of the city suffers less rain fall and flooding that the rest of the city.
RE: Where to rent in Houston
The train only goes from University of Houston downtown to Reliant Stadium. Midtown is a nice area but a little pricey, but you might be able to find an affordable 1bdrm or efficiency. Also, check around Rice University area for garage apts or duplex it is in walking distance to MDA and there is also a jog/bike trail down Main Street thru Rice U. www.houstonpress.com has some affordable apt listings. Metro bus can get you around most places www.ridemetro.org Feel free to e-mail me if you have any other questions.
Travel Tips for Houston
Why Signal when Changing Lanes?
One of the things that I noticed on Houston freeways was that drivers seldom signal before changing lanes. I had a local with me one day in my rented car and I asked him about this. His response was that if you signaled, you would tip off the driver behind you on your left or right and that driver would then speed up to prevent you from getting in front of him!
a great mall
Spanning a seemingly unending stretch of land, this ever-expanding mall in the western boondocks can be breathtaking, reducing experienced shoppers to huffing and puffing as they try to visit just one more store. The mall is enormous; it's not out of place to carry a map. As much an entertainment destination as a retail operation, Katy Mills can keep you occupied all day (and night), though casual shoppers may find the experience overwhelming. Chain stores such as Banana Republic, Guess, Old Navy, Levi's form the core. Specialty shops include Animagic, Bible Factory Outlet and NASCAR Silicon Motor Speedway. Sportsmen will drool over Pro Bass Shops Outdoor World, and Kenneth Cole draws shoe addicts. Kids can keep themselves busy at the rock-climbing wall or a 20-screen AMC theater. Restaurants go beyond the average food court, with the "entertainment" venue Rainforest Cafe a particularly popular attraction.
Delicious Vietnamese in Rice Village!
This a great vietnamese restaurant located at the heart of the Rice Village district. It is cheap for extremely delicate, spiceful dishes. This restaurant is small and family run. Nice atmosphere. Lots of locals go there. Do not miss it!! Everything is good!
Eclectic Thai in the Clear Lake area
This restaurant is re-opened on 4th street (still in Seabrook) after being wiped-out by hurricane Ike in 2008.
As delicious as ever!
This restaurant is a gem. Simply the best in the Clear Lake area.
First it is located in a nice-looking area, and not in a strip mall with ugly parking lots like most restaurants in Houston. This one is overlooking a pretty lake and is right next to Galveston Bay. It is small, family owned, in a old quaint little house. The food (Thai) is delicious. The service is a little slow but it is definitely worth the wait; you are likely to wait 1/2 hour or more if it is a group of more than 4 (and it means they did not heat up the stuff in the microwave at the last minute!! They are cooking everything from scratch). Sometimes also they do not have the ingredients for certain dishes or all the wines of their wine list. But even if they do not have what you initially wanted to order, it does not matter as everything is wonderfully tasting! Everything is delicious! My favorite is the dish with duck (forgot the name, but there is only one).
The Tram Tour
Don't miss the tram tour, this is one of the most interesting activities.
I have been able to see the actual astronaut training facilities and the historical Command Center from where the Apollo missions were controlled.
This is amazing to realise they have been able to send people to the moon with such primitive technologies (your actual PC is way more powerfull than the "supercomputer" that was controlling everything at that time)
Apparently the different tours don't always have the same destinations, it could eventually be interesting to do several of them (but count one hour for each)
