For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
Bellaire is beautiful but out of my price range! South Post Oak is where my aunt stayed and she had a lovely home out there. She has since sold it and moved to a sub-division in Missouri City and it's nice to.

Thanks! Ive been on indmix heavy to find out what goes on, ive been trying to figure out which parties are "upscale" im really liking the bellaire area because itll be close to where ill be working.
Also, my mom lives in a nice apartment home in Bellaire. Bellaire is a good location because it's almost smack dab in the middle of Houston. That makes moving around Houston a lot easier.
There are apartments there too but I didn't really ride around while there so I can't say what the ranges are. But Houston have cheaper apartments then the gulf-coast and if I felt like driving an hour to work everday and two-three hours back again I would have been moved up there. The humidity is the worst but not so bad on your hair, but expect your scalp to sweat if you have a oily scalp. That's my problem, I sweat all around my hairline and halfway up the back of my head so it's hard for me personally to keep a style and I have ninja hair so what that tell ya! It's always a wind blowing too, well, I can't say that about Houston, my side of town stays windy so make sure your hair is full of frizz ease or spritz or whatever it is you use to keep it straight cause when you get home it might not look the same! Real talk!

I was looking at bellaire and missouri city cus i notice alot of ballers live there but are there many apartments or just houses?
Good areas to live are Missouri City, Southwest, Southeast side of Houston, Bellaire. Harwin is where you go to shop, listen to 97.9 for the club information, it goes down often. Umm, hit 45 and you should be able to see all kinds of places. I don't go that often but to the h*** in the walls cause they go down! There used to be this club called Cornbread, It was super small and definitely a whole in the wall but it was off the chain! There are still some like it, but they are usually after hours spots because that's where you go AFTER you leave the club cause they stay open till 4 am. But yeah, check out the radio cause they always advertise stuff that's happening. I have a mini subscription to O-Zone mag where Julia sends out invitations to parties and other stuff, where who is going to be and when, etc. But I am unable to find the original site for some reason, maybe she shut it down and just sends the emails to whoever was on her original mailing list but I really can't say. But her emails contain all the in-the-know information in regards to Houston and the happenings.
@PB... interesting article on human trafficking in TX. I lived in Houston since childhood and wasn't aware. Guess I need to keep up with my local news! lol
The city is very culturally diverse which I love and has some of the best selections of restaurants, sports bars (check out Twin Peaks - last time I went to watch game 7 of the NBA finals last month... saw NFL & corp type ballers), cultural events, sporting events... a little of everything. Inside the inner loop (6-10 Hwy) as mentioned before is where the nightlife happens but the suburbs (areas close to or outside the Beltway/Sam Houston Tollway) are mainly where it's more affordable and/or safer to live
Great thread. I'm trying my damnedest to get out of DC and I'm starting to look at Houston. I'm disappointed the kidnapping is a big thing. I keep getting bad news about every city I'm interested in.
@Empress- don't move to the DMV. It sucks, trust me.
