Moving to Houston from Los Angeles

by mcse

Hi everybody,
me and my wife are strongly considering relocating to Houston later this year. We visited it last year and liked it a lot, especially housing prices and all the friendly people. We have a 6 month old baby and like the areas of: Kingwood, The Woodlands, Sugar Land. We still have to research Cypress though. Please advise which area has low crime, good schools and less probability to be flooded. Driving distance doesn't concern me much since I am from L.A. Also, I am in the IT industry, I would assume there are jobs in my field in the 4th largest city of the nation but again, I will search ahead of time.
Thank you all !

Lots of IT jobs in Houston. That shouldn't be a problem.
For flooding, all the areas you suggested are fine. All are near a major river or creek which floods about every 10 years or so, but most houses are far enough way that this doesn't pose a problem. Just beware of houses bordering the woods and on golf courses.
All are about the same for crime, schools and housing prices. One big difference is the governments: Kingwood is in Harris County and part of the City of Houston, The Woodlands is in Montgomery County and unincorporated but may be part of the City of Houston by 2010, Sugar Land is in Fort Bend County and is its own city.
Don't rule out Downtown though. West University Place and Bellaire are both VERY nice if you can afford them. Good schools, family-oriented, no flooding.

Hope that helps.

Actually, I am a native houstonian and downtown, bellaire, west u, all are flood prone. so, if you are that concerned about it, I would avoid them....and, fyi, while the suburban areas you like are relatively safe, since they are a part of a giant city, you still have to be careful..

RE: RE: Moving to Houston from Los Angeles

Thanks to all for advice. How important is it to know what county to live in, especially when it comes to property taxes, fiscal budget health, gun control, etc....I have heard in Texas, counties have their own laws which defer from their neighbor's. Please educate me more by comparing the above mentioned points on how Harris county is different from Fort Bend and Montgomery county.
Also, where can I find more information on how much property taxes school districts, county, city, etc. collect?
Thanks again!

RE: RE: Moving to Houston from Los Angeles

by monicarc

hummmm, really the only influence the counties have here is on taxing your property. Health, GUNS, etc etc come down from the State.

RE: RE: Moving to Houston from Los Angeles

by monicarc

Oh I just saw the rest of your question: look on www.hcad.org for harris county taxing info. do a yahoo search on "montgomery county, texas" and I think the county web site is like the 2 or 2 hit.

Having lived in LA most of my life (Los Feliz then Thousand Oaks) I was relocated to Houston. Like you, I prefer the suburbs myself. I love the price of housing and the friendy people. I know where you are coming from in regard to traffic. Houston is BAD, but nothing like LA. I prefer the Woodlands simply it is a planned forest community. Remember getting in and out of the Woodlands to the I-45 can be a problem. I purchased in an area called Friendswood, southeast of Houston because my work, NASA, is close by.

Drink, Drink & Be Merry!

by H-TownJourneyman about The State Bar & Lounge

This Downtown lounge is a popular hangout for happy hour as well as evenings. It is very well decorated, a very elegant and older feel to it, and the dark wood and brass handrails add to that ambiance. At night, the dim lighting and well illuminated bar give State Bar an even classier atmosphere. The bar is situated just to left as you come up the stairs and into the lounge area, with tables and booths all along the perimeter. They have a nice little outside patio area for a views of the goings-on in downtown on the streets below. They offer a wide variety of beers, wines, spirits, and even a very small menu of foods, generally sandwiches and a few appetizers. The crowd can be very mixed, all ages, and for the most part a type that frequents upscale places as this. Nice bar, nice atmosphere, good location. As it is a little upscale, decent attire is the norm. Normal night-on-the town dress, jeans are acceptable

Well worth the price

by texas_bravo about Pappas Brothers Steakhouse

This is in the top three steakhouses in Houston. I hope if you go you are oon a corporate expense account, cause it can get a bit expensive! Amazing bar, great wine list.
Very elegant place, while maintaining a Texas steakhouse feel. Not to mention the cigar bar! You can't go worng with anything on the menu. I prefer the 18oz, Prime Ribeye.
What the hell wash it all down with a glass of Remy Louis XIII , it's only $125 per glass.

NASA Space Center

by kd_baby

This is a definite "must see" attraction in Houston. You'll see everything from old spaceships to the old control room. Tours of the center also include astronaut training facilities (underwater training, 0 gravity rooms, etc.) and even proposed plans...like that "SpaceStation" that was promised when I was a kid.

Williams tower is an icon in...

by tarush

Williams tower is an icon in Houston because it a tall skyscraper that isn't located downtown and hence stands out against the Texas sky...You can see it from realy far.. The gardens and the fountains of the towers are a place where office-goers relax and families come out on weekends..
