This is a beautiful, clean area with very little criminal activity. It is in close vicinity to some of the best restaurants, shops, and attractions in Houston so there is always something fun to do. It is also very close to a number of wonderful schools as well as downtown and other common workplaces. Overall, I am very happy living here and would definitely love to continue living here.
I would live in that area again, but it would not be my first choice. I felt safe walking my dog late at night and early in the morning. I was able to walk to work and to various restaurants easily. I would consider buying a house in the area because the house prices are a little high, but are continually growing.
