Moving to Houston

by grbh

I am relocating from Dallas to Houston on or around the first of September. I'm trying to figure out where to live and having some difficulties as Houston seems to be such a carcentric city.

Here is what I am looking for:

Most important to me is to be somewhere I can walk to restaurants, movies, shops, etc. I am having some difficulty finding areas like this. In addition close to public transportation would be nice, but not necessary. I would prefer to keep rent under $750, and I understand I will likely be paying for location. All I need in my apartment is a clean, and relatively safe place to sleep. Oh yeah, and I have a larger dog to, fortunately he is not going to be a breed restriction.

Thanks for any help.

There pretty much isn't any where you can go around here walking to shops. I guess if you lived in the montrose area, there are some good restaurants there, but not that many shops and there aren't any movie theatres around there. you basically need a car. my complex, bayou park apartments, is near montrose, river oaks, downtown, the heights, and its only $630.00 a month and i feel really safe living there. I know people have dogs there. If you want me to get the phone number for the leasing office, let me know.

First off, public transportation in Houston is slim to none, and slim is out of town. There is the illustrious Metro, but plan on taking 4 times as long to get from point A to point B. Montrose has a lot of restaurants, but it is a bit dodgy and it lacks other things like shops and restaurants. It is also the “gay” area of town. So many of the clubs, bars and shops are very gay. (Now fellow VTers, this is a fact, not an homophobic opinion).

The Galleria area is probably your best bet. It is located at the intersection of 59 and 610 (at the SW intersection). It is near the Galleria mall and you can walk to several place. $750 will do you okay in this area, but I’m not sure about your dog.

How old are you and what is your lifestyle?

If you want to be able to walk to stuff, I'd recommend the Montrose area, also. However, Montrose is the "colorful" area of town with lots of diverse people. Depends what kind of area you're really looking for.

Travel Tips for Houston

Visit the Ocean

by AVG2319

Drive down 288 until you can't go anymore, through Freeport,TX there is a lovely spot of raw ocean beach. The road ends and while you drive out onto the sand it almost looks like you are driving straight into the ocean for a moment. Park and have fun away from all the tourists! Our kids have a blast here-hardly anyone around and who knew you could drive right up next to the ocean. There was a semi cab parked next to us. I have been to every ocean in the US and have never seen this, but on the other hand it is not crowded with people here and the water is warm even in October. It was fun.
If this is not your style you can drive up Seawall Blvd towards Galveston-there is plenty of places there to see the ocean and get your feet wet. It is actually a quiet ride and you get to look at all those houses on stilts on the way too.
Beaches are not resort style-don't expect this and you won't be disappointed. Warm Water, Sand,a nice breeze, and a long pier = fun.

There are two major Airports...

by Ricardo_J_M

There are two major Airports in Houston located at opposite ends of the city. If your passing through and be sure your connecting plan is our of the same airport DO NOT TRY TO FLY OUT THE OTHER!
You must have a car. Unfortunately the city public transportation sucks.

Rothko Chapel

by krackhorre

Rothko Chapel is a tranquil sanctuary open to all faiths nestled in the heart of Houston. The walls of the chapel display many of Mark Rothko's abstract and minimalist paintings. However the interior of the chapel is not decorated with any religious icons which allows for a very inviting atmosphere. The courtyard just outside the chapel doors is the site of one of the most inspiring sculptures in Houston; a giant inverted broken obelisk balanced atop a pyramid at the end of a reflecting pool. Both inside and out Rothko Chapel is a place of deep reflection, meaning and acceptance.

The Port Of Houston/Houston Ship Channel

by H-TownJourneyman

The Houston Ship Channel is the 30+ mile long waterway that extends from Galveston Bay to the southeast side of town, and turns into Buffalo Bayou, which runs through the center of the city. The Ship Channel is how Houston got its start as growing city on the banks of Buffalo Bayou, and it links Houston to the sea, making the city one of the most important international port cities in the world. After Texas won it's independence from Mexico in 1836, small ships began navigating up the then narrow and shallow channel to Buffalo Bayou, and the city. Plans were made quickly to expand the channel so larger vessels could make their way up to the city. Competition quickly began between Houston and it's then rival city to the southeast, Galveston. As the jostling continued between the 2 cities over several decades, Houston was also linked to the national system of railroads, which gave it an extra edge on the dispersal of shipped in items. Then in 1900 when a hurricane struck Galveston, killed thousands of it's residents, and all but wiped the city of the map, Houston emerged as the chief port city on the Texas coast. And after the Texas oil boom occured soon after, Houston's shipping activities increased dramatically. Over the years, as the port has been expanded and more commerce and shipping has been conducted here, the Houston Ship Channel has become one of the most vital parts to the city's livelihood. Now not just used for shipping, many cruise and casino ships use the port for a departure location. Tours are now available to relive the port's history, and discover it's immense importance to the City of Houston. A very interesting look into one of the largest ports in the world!
