There is a great culture, food, nightlife, and shops in the area but sadly those come at a cost. Rent can be expensive in the area, the roads are old and bumpy, and parking is a mess due to the tightly packed nature of the area.
Montrose is located in the central heart area of Houston which is 4th largest city in the US by population. The area is melting pot of so much diversity that caters to a multitude of backgrounds. A thriving location that is constantly growing and from here can explore Houston in any direction.
