blackdog Posted April 21, 2005 Share Posted April 21, 2005 Hi All, We're relocating to Houston (I'll be working on Highway 6 south of I-10; I figured that this was a good forum to start) and wonder if any of you can offer some suggestions on where to look for a home. To throw out a wishlist and give you some background on our interests: 1) it would be great to commute 30 mins or less 2) we're early 30's; no children yet, but soon... 3) proximity to running trails and greenery would be fantastic (Terry Hersey Trail ok?) 4) would love to be able to walk/bike to shops, restaurants, pub for a drink every now and then 5) 2-3 times a month, would be great to see plays/theatre and jazz/classical music. It would be great to see live rock and roll/ soul/ funk/ etc. sometimes too. 6) safe neighborhood 7) someplace nice to walk the dog every day... I've only visited Houston for the job interview, so I don't have a feet-on-the-ground perspective of the city and don't really know if what we've seen on the internet is valid, but... so far, we've thought a couple of places look interesting: "the Heights", which seems nice, but maybe too far of a commute? "the Galleria" and the Westchase area? I've been looking along Terry Hersey trail on google maps looking for nice neighborhoods too...We'll be able to afford a house up to ~300K. Any suggestions? Thank you for your help!!! -blackdog Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
