Whether you’ve lived in Houston your whole life or it’s your first time in the Lone Star State, striking out as a single homeowner can pose some unique challenges; not the least of which being where to live.
Houston is a massive, sprawling cityscape that spans more than 600 square miles. That’s a lot of real estate to cover, but if you’re looking to live close to some singles hot spots, you’ll need to narrow your focus a bit. We’ve curated a list of some of the top spots to buy if you’re wanting a location close to the action.
Are your tastes a bit eclectic?
Try the Heights. It’s one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, and it’s got a great mix of funky cafes and street fairs that attract sizeable crowds. Check out weekly Bingo nights on Beall Street for a diverse (and enthusiastic) crowd.
Perhaps you prefer things a bit more upscale.
The Galleria area has a great selection of trendy and fine dining restaurants with a lively, popular bar scene. The shopping at the Galleria Mall can’t be beat, and it’s a great place to see and be seen.
Early birds need not apply!
If you’re more of a night owl, consider planting your roots in Midtown. The neighborhood outside of Houston’s central business district has a vibrant nightlife and great walkability, so there’s always something to do and somewhere to go.
Artists, look no further.
The Montrose neighborhood is home to many art galleries and concert venues, and there is always something new to see. Coffee shops in the area are always brewing creative chatter (and cute baristas!) so you’ll fit right in.
Looking for something a little more laid back?
Try the beach! Neighborhoods like Seabrook, Galveston or the areas surrounding Lake Conroe offer a beachy vibe with plenty of water sports and waterfront attractions while still offering a reasonable commute into the city.
