My Brother is Moving to Houston in November

by Alegria2005am

Hi, My older brother is moving to Houston, Texas in November with his wife and six year old son. He is moving from Miami, Florida and is really happy to be leaving there after living most of his life in South Florida. Can you guys please give some good advice on the city. They would have to rent and are looking for somewhere safe and convenient. My Brother is getting a tranfer from his company which is Truely Nolen, the pest control company. Again, all the advice on the area, places to avoid, details would be fantastic so I can forward him these when you guys write. Appreciate your help.
Thank you,
concerned Brother

It's been a while since I lived there, but Sugarland was always considered a nice part of town. It may be pricey these days, though.

He's gonna love it here. I just moved here 2 years ago. When i first moved here i lived in league City. i liked it there being near the water/Galveston and Kemah. But i seemed to be spending more time in Houston Heights then L.C. so i bought a house in the Heights. Very lovely/ecletic type people. Near downtown and all the great restaurants. Heights community has nice places-I'm near memorial park-great park as i love to jog.
tell him to try www.aptsforrent.com
i find the cost of living here very inexpensive. For instance, in League city i had a 1300 sq apt for 899 the name of the apt community is Anchorage Apts.

Good luck to your brother.

This is a reply I keep copy/paste for similar questions on the Houston forum:

Your best bet for cheaper housing is in the suburbs. I live in the Clear Lake Area, SE of the city, and it is a very nice very safe typical suburb. Friendswood is another possibility (South of Houston). There are many good schools. For example, many of the astronauts' kids go to school in the Clear Lake area (that's where NASA Johnson Space Center is located).
Along Bay area boulevard, which is in the suburbs SE of Houston, perpendicular to I45, E of it, there are lots of nice appartment complexes. This is where I live, it is very safe, there are shops, it is your typical suburb.
Examples:
A very nice one:
http://www.apartmentratings.com/rate/v/281212835577058/park_at_armand_bayou.html
A cheap one:
Village Green 2305 Bay Area Blvd
Here is a good page with price ranges for this area (called Clear Lake area):
http://www.apartmentshoustonmovingrelocation.com/clear_lake.htm
Houses to buy in the Clear Lake area vary in price I would guess from $100,000 to a million, with an average around $150,000-200,000 (educated guess here!!).

I would not live around University of Houston, these are not good neighborhoods. Eastern Houston is in general not great because of poluution (industrial ship channel) and poorer neighborhoods. It is very expensive to live in the nice neighborhoods of Houston such as around Rice University-Museum district, and near Medical Center is not cheap too. The super posh area is Post-Oak (I have a map on my VT Houston page you can use to know where all this is).

Here are websites to check for safe areas:
http://records.txdps.state.tx.us/soSearch/soSearch.cfm
http://www.ci.houston.tx.us/department/police/stats.htm
If you need to enter a zipcode, 77054 would be medical center, 77204 woud be UH, 77059 would be Clear Lake.

Another important thing for Houston is that you definitely need a car. There is no decent common transportation. Put that in the budget!
Hope this helps your brother!

Travel Tips for Houston

Montrose district (AKA Neartown)

by peaceness98

This is the 'gay/lesbian' part of town

It also happens to be the trendier part of town, with tattoo parlours, piercing shops, and popular teenage stuff stores

Plenty of good restaurants too

Lynchburg Ferry

by Segolily

We came in from the north east of town and were headed to San Jacinto Monument. The Lynchburg ferry was the quickest way to get there. It is not built for heavy duty traffic. This is a little town in an out of the way spot. The day we arrived some coast guard type people were doing a mandatory vehicle check. I'm sorry, I can't remember how much it cost. If I find something I will change this entry. On this Friday morning it wasn't a very long wait, at least while we were there. We had just missed it so had to wait about 15 min for the next one, then about 15 min before we took off. I think it holds about 10 vehicles? We got to get up close and personal with some very large Ship as this does take you across the Houston Shipping channel. We asked and the pilot said that yes, there have been times where they contact, but obviously they try to time things so that doesn't happen. This is just the sort of small local experience that we love to have.

Good Mexican in West Houston

by topmarmot about Del Pueblo

Yet another Mexican restaurant set in a strip mall. Houston architecture is just so fine. Once you're in though, this is always a lively place, particularly the bar. Try the Meltdown for post work relief. The menu is fairly typical and the food is very good quality. Their Carnitas is very, very good indeed. The standard by which all Houston Carnitas is judged.

Texas Medical Center

by alan505

The Texas Medical Center is a vast and ever-expanding complex that is host to dozens of hospitals and universities. The Texas Medical Center also known as TMC or The Houston Med Center is located about 3 miles outside of Downtown Houston. Hospitals and institutions located in the Houston Med Center are:

Baylor College of Medicine
Ben Taub General Hospital
Brown Foundation Institute of Molecular Medicine for the Prevention of Human Diseases
Hospice at the Texas Medical Center
Houston Academy of Medicine
Houston Academy of Medicine Texas Medical Center (HAM-TMC) Library
Houston Community College System, Health Science Programs
Houston Department of Health and Human Services
Institute for Religion and Health
John P. McGovern Museum of Health & Medical Science
LifeGift Organ Donation Center
Lyndon Baines Johnson General Hospital
Memorial Hermann Children’s Hospital
Memorial Hermann Hospital
The Methodist Hospital
Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions
Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center
Prairie View A&M University, College of Nursing
Quentin Mease Community Hospital
St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital
Shriners Hospitals for Children Houston
Texas A&M University Health Science Center
Texas Children’s Hospital
Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital
Texas Medical Center Hospital Laundry Cooperative Association
Texas Southern University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences
Texas Woman’s University Institute of Health Sciences
TIRR (The Institute for Rehabilitation and Research)
University of Houston College of Pharmacy
The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston

While many might find hospitals to be places to avoid there are many reasons to visit the Houston Med Center. For starters it is a city unto itself. Metro’s Light Rail system connects this “city” to Downtown Houston and provides a link to Herman Park, The Houston Museum District, The Houston Zoo, and The Reliant Center.
