What You Need to Know Before Moving to Houston

Houston is one of the largest cities in Texas, and there’s a lot that you should know, consider, and learn before you decide to move to this city. 

If you are planning to move to this city, there are so many things that you need to learn and take into consideration so that you won’t spend most of your time goggling at all the awesome things to do, and places to go to in this metropolis. You don’t have to worry, though, because Houston is a city where you can easily adapt and fit in.

Check out this list first, before you start to pack your bags, and start planning on moving to your new home:

Get an Apartment that is Close to Where You Work

People, most of the time, move to another city because of work. If you are one of them, your new place of work should be around where your usual route is. Having said that, it’s best to look for a Houston apartment that is near your office.

While it’s true that Houston is an awesome city to live in, this city is not really ‘walkable’. You can drive, but traffic tends to get dense especially during rush hour. Thus, walking to and from work is always a good idea.

Houston is a Young and Trendy City

The median age in Houston is 33, this makes the city one of the youngest and coolest cities in Texas. This means, you are more likely to find workmates, neighbors, and friends who are also young ,this is good if you are also in your late 20s or 30s.

If you are not, don’t fuss ’cause there are residents that are of the same age like you. 

Living in a young city means there’s always something to do: whether you get a cup of coffee, eat at a nice and cozy cafe, or attend a concert.

The Weather is Not Always Cool

Houston’s weather is hot and humid, so you better get ready if you are used to living in a cool place.

The Loop

The Loop is a highway that circles Houston. If you are inside the loop, then you are in the downtown area of Houston. Being familiar with this will make chatting with your Houston friends much easier and lighter.

Houston Loves Art

Houston is a mecca for arts, museums, and shows. If you are into this kind of stuff, Houston is definitely the city for you.

Houston is Surrounded by Parks

Houston is known for having a lot of green space, that means there are so many places for you to have picnics, play fetch with your dog, go walking and /or running, etc.

Don’t let the hot and humid weather stop you from enjoying the lush, green, and natural landscape of a highly-urbanized city like Houston.
