If you are looking for a more family-oriented community that is close to the metropolis, maybe you should consider Pearland, Sugar Land, or Katy. Pearland considered one of the safest area in the region and works very hard to promote community events such as its Crawfish Festival and its nationwide famous high school football team, the Pearland Oilers. In fact, the Pearland Oilers just broke a record for the highest attendance for a high school football game: 54,347!
River Oaks, located west about fifteen minutes from downtown within the Inner Loop, is considered one of the nicest areas for apartments in Houston. With several country clubs close by and Memorial Park (1,466 acres large!), this is the area that you will want to clue in on if you are looking for upscale apartments with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.
And one of the perks of living here is the easy beach access. From downtown, Trinity Bay is less than a forty minute drive away, so no matter what part of town you live in, you can count on being within an hour or less from a day at the beach. On those hot days where the average heat is in the 90s, that beach is crucial. Finding an apartment with central AC should probably be a priority as well!
