Relocating from The Netherlands to Texas.

by SilSli

Hi all,

My man has got a Job offer in Houston TX, which means we would have to relocate from The Netherlands.

What we are looking for is a safe family orientated area (We have a 3 year old boy), close to day-care centres, elm schools and shopping mall/grocery store.
We are looking at The Woodlands but are not sure. His new office is located between G. Bush airport and beltway 8.

All suggestions are welcome.

I will get a dependency visa (I’m not allowed to work in the US) any ideas on voluntary work, are also very welcome !!

Sil.

For your man's work location I would definitely recommend the Woodlands. Houston is notorious for it's horrible traffic, so you don't want to stray too far. BTW, a second option, for less money you may consider Spring.

Kingwood is also an option and is about the same distance away from the airport as The Woodlands and generally the same type of community. The Woodlands is certainly nice though, and relatively affordable.
You should have no problem finding an opportunity for volunteering. Most every organization is always looking. Look into Goodwill, the Salvation Army, the United Way and Habitat for Humanity. The schools in the US use volunteer parents a lot as well for their activities.

How about the Champions area (249 and 1960)? I lived there for 15 years and found it perfectly safe and convenient at the same time. The beltway is just a couple of miles away.

Hi we're about to make the move in the opposite direction from Houston, TX where we've been for 2 years to Rotterdam, Nl. We're English and would be happy to share tips and info with you about moving to Houston, and would appreciate some advice about getting along in the Netherlands! Where in the Netherlands are you living now?

you might consider conroe texas. as you leave houston going to conroe the traffic gets lighter as you get closer to conroe.
often takes 30 minutes or more for my brother to get from bush airport to the woodlands mall. from the woodlands mall to conroe often takes less than 30 min.
if your husband is a golf lover he would probably prefer the woodlands.
or some other area with many golf courses like the champion area.
i would think twice about anything along 1960 that would require you to drive several miles on 1960. the traffic on 1960 west of I45 is aways very bad.

Travel Tips for Houston

Motorsports in houston

by ridermirv

Howdy,

Houston is not a very exciting town, but it is big. If you need to be within 30 minutes of Spring, your best bet is to stay near Greenspoint and the airport area.

If our interested in shooting, there are indoor ranges around, just look in the telephone book. If you want to go fishing, I would recommend going to Galveston. You can charter a boat, fish in the bay, or off a pier. For motorsports your choices are limited. There are drag racing strips, dirt bike tracks, and dirt oval track racing, but they don't race every week.

Here's some racing links:

Hope you enjoy your stay in Texas,

How about Mexican? Well, alright then....

by topmarmot about El Charro

This is our local Mexican. It's in a strip mall and there is not much ambience to speak of, although there are a couple of singing waiters. This is a restaurant with a lot of regulars, many of whom come for the Margaritas. I usually imbibe the Grand Gold Margarita. This is a very "efficient" drink; from experience I limit myself to a maximum of two.

The food is good, though not spectacular. I enjoy the Diablo Shrimp and the Snapper.

Tip: if you shop at Kroger locally, your till receipt will likely have a $5 coupon on back for this restaurant.

Battleship Texas

by selket_20

This was a great find! We had originally planned to spend a couple of hours and ended up spending the better part of the day. Located just across from the San Jacinto National Park, the Battleship Texas allows you to take a self guided tour and explore the last of the Dreadnaughts. They have restored a large part of the ship and are continuing. You can explore much of the ship, even the engine room was open.. I must admit that I chickened out after I went down to the first Catwalk.. it was kinda creepy. If you can make it all the way down, Kudos to you. :)
