Midtown Reviews

10 reviews
All Categories
Very central, modern, vibrant, walkable neighborhood with easy access to downtown, and most of Houston's freeways within a 5 minute drive. Plentiful nearby restaurants, nightlife. Large enough neighborhood to find a quieter corner. Close to Buffalo Bayou trails and few other small city/neighborhood parks. One or two really good schools nearby, but make sure to check zoning, as others are not good at all. Car crime is an everyday problem.

Midtown is within walking distance to so many things. The livability is great, there is a very diverse population and the neighborhood are becoming the place to live near downtown.
Midtown has lots of restaurants and bars in the area. The location is close to downtown and all the major freeways. Since it is more up and coming than some other places in Houston the cost of living is still cheaper.
