Houston has always been an oil capital of the South. Often referred to as a "bog town", this city attracts all kinds of people because of the relatively affordable cost of living and its large size. Due to the booming economy, you can comfortably live in the 4th largest city in the US and still afford a one bedroom for less than $800 a month.

Like most big cities, Houston can be broken down into smaller neighborhoods, each with its own unique characteristics. No matter what you're into, Houston has that experience available if you know where to look. Fine dining, shopping, award-winning opera houses, tattoo parlors, 80s-themed nightclubs, and more all call Houston home.

Local Insight



Filled with late night bars, one-of-a-kind restaurants, and local landmarks, Montrose is the center for alternative culture. The neighborhood has a long history of LGBTQ residents and has a very welcoming "Island of Misfit Toys" vibe to it. The older properties in the area are reasonably priced, but many of the newer apartments are more expensive. Montrose is a multifaceted and diverse area that showcases the best parts of the Houston scene: art, food, and people.


While almost every neighborhood in Houston offers late night experiences, some areas do stay up later than others. Downtown features a blend of historic bars, late night restaurants, and concert venues. Midtown has a few nightclubs and many trendy bars, some featuring beer gardens, while EaDo has the 8th Wonder Brewery as well as over a dozen bars, ranging from speakeasy themes to upscale cocktails. Montrose takes the cake for having the most dance clubs and late-night restaurants. Both the Museum District and the Medical Center feature only a few options for nighttime festivities.

The River Oaks and Uptown areas feature a plethora of wine bars, as well as a few local pubs. GOOF is still growing, so late night options are currently lacking. The Suburbs, on the other hand, have several unique city centers that offer a variety of nighttime activities, ranging from movies to upscale restaurants and even late-night golfing. The Heights contains a few bars, but the neighborhood is close enough to Downtown that it doesn't need many.

Satisfy Your Tastebuds

Houston is a hotbed for all things food. With many diverse cultures living here, you can get almost any kind of cuisine anywhere in town. Montrose boasts the most variety with Vietnamese, Sichuan, Tex-Mex, Mediterranean, and American all on the same block.  Uptown offers many organic and fine-dining options, and Downtown features everything from a $2 pizza to $100 steaks.

EaDo and the Museum District feature eclectic food choices including gourmet hot dogs. GOOF and the Suburbs have been "testing grounds" for new meal concepts by local chefs. The Medical Center depends on nearby Rice Village and Bellaire for unique dining options. Midtown showcases local favorites, as well as food trucks and food-truck-inspired restaurants. The Heights area also features restaurants that are inspired by the food truck culture.


The humidity in Houston can sometimes make it feel like you’re swimming outside instead of walking. The upside to the humid summer is the mild winter. It rarely gets below 30 degrees during the winter months in Houston. During the rest of the year, however, temperatures can range between 65–95 degrees, depending on the area. Over the summer, temperatures can easily get above 100 degrees.

Fortunately, most apartment complexes come equipped with central air or window units. Besides the heat, thunderstorms and flooding are among the biggest concerns for many Houston residents, as seen during Hurricane Harvey. Despite the cost of rain boots and sunscreen, the sunsets are well worth the expense no matter where you live in Houston.

Travel and Transport

Houston is a city where having a car is almost mandatory due to the distance between locations. Despite this, you can usually get where you need to be within 30 – 45 minutes if you plan your route ahead of time. No matter where you live in Houston, you will need to learn all of the highways here. Rush hour depends on the highway. Typically, the big metropolitan highways (45, 59, and 610) are crowded between 6:30 AM – 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM in addition to some lunch hour traffic. Other highways like I-10 and 288 have traffic patterns which fluctuate, but you should always give yourself an extra 20 minutes no matter where you’re trying to go.

The good news is that parking is typically available and even free in Houston! Public transportation is a bit lacking in Houston, but improvements have been made to bus schedules and other public transit options over the years. The city plans to lengthen the Metrorail within the next decade, which will provide another option for those without cars. Some Houston residents do rely on bicycles but only in certain neighborhoods.
