Ok, Im hoping you Houstin people will help me out here. Im looking for an apartment near the woodlands and close to or north of 1960. I plan to go to UTI in the fall and would just like the advice of anybody who lives here. I need a two bedroom for me and a roommate. I've visited and have some ideas, but would like some hands on experience. Also, if anybody wants to rent me a room or something...............

Just realize Houston is a shitty place to live now and move on with your life! :rofl:
Well yeah, if you live inside the loop :rolleyes:

Places on the outskirts are still ok, with the north side being better than the south side. Trash will always collect at the surf :p

Yeah, Houston has its crappy parts. But that could be said for just about ANY place...

Are you just pissed off at Houston because of that chic?

Sorry for junking up your thread stucktaco...

No, I hated it LONG before seeing her. Houston has more than it's share of crappy parts. Let's look at the primary factors for living somewhere:

Jobs: yes, houston has a lot of pretty good paying jobs. There's lots of places like that though.

Cost of living: overall, Houston is rated as pretty darn cheap, but there appears to be not much middle ground - it's either super expensive or GHETTO (and dangerous - more on that later)

Crime: horrible. Throughout the city.

Traffic: horrible. No matter where you go, what time of day or night, you're gonna be in traffic (and probably wait in line when you get there)

Weather: yes, mild winters. Unfortunately, you pay for that with hotter-than-the-blazes-of-hell-and-unbeliveably-humid summers. Oh, and don't forget hurricanes.

Culture/Entertainment: Yes, Houston has EVERYTHING. Some great museums, a fine symphony, etc. The only better place for restaurants I've been is Chicago - and that's saying something, however, there's LOTS of places that can claim similar.

Aesthetics: Houston is ugly. The only geographic feature is the Gulf, and while much better than it used to be, is still pretty nasty. The city sprawls FOREVER in treeless flatness (until you get way up north, like Woodlands).

To sum up:
Houston is a God-forsaken pit of humanity that I would never consider living in. :2cents:

No - I have no problem with TX. I would live in Austin or San Antonio in a HEARTBEAT. Just Houston...

LOL yeah I was givin ya a hard time on an old joke ;)

Funny what you call negatives is what I like about the area. I LOVE the humidity and hot summers. I lived in beaumont for 10 years (and you thought houston was bad, ha), and spent 4 of them working in the rice fields. Nothing was more fun, and I finally got some decent sleep at night. Apparently I have to work my ass off before I sleep well, and it's gotta be hard physical labor. I am cursed forever to sleepless nights as an IT guy now... go figure.

Austin has hills, and being a coastal guy (didn't I say trash collects in the surf? lol) I prefer the flatness of the coastal plains. Every time I drive in austin I seem to have a near-death experience based on the hills throwing me off.

The traffic is great when it's moving. I am at home in 80mph car-dodging split-second reflexes traffic. If you think that's bad, I hear dallas is even more exciting. The hurricanes just make it more fun too. Nothing beats playing on the beach when a hurricane is blowing in :)

Ghetto - you got a point there.

Haha im not a big fan of houston and for sure wouldnt want to live there. But further north in the woodlands seems to be better. Its also gotten much worse after all the katrina fall out. Austin would be the shit. Dallas would be ok, but Texas is huge theres lots of great places to work and live it just depends how much you want to spend. Ive lived in south east texas all my life growing up in Vidor which has its own stigma but moved to Beaumont which is a big city with a small town feel

My family that moved up there from texas noticed that but they have lived up there awhile now and fit right in. Colorado sure does have some bad ass scenery....Texas has its own great parts just not around here in south east texas. Were to close to those damn cajuns and all we have are rice patties and swamps :D
