Coming from a small town to Now a 10 year Southbelt Resident really good! Big City meets small town charm kinda feel! Nice and quiet for the most part. The location's great! Easy access to 45 and the Beltway; also the HOV/Toll lane to bypass any major accidents causing high traffic delays during the early AMs! I actually feel centralized...meaning if we want a Family Beach Day it's about a 40 min drive to Galveston or have a Big City Date Night its about 30 mins to downtown. We're also close to Hobby airport, Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital, grocery stores, shopping centers, and entertainment like movie theaters, bowling, & neighborhood bars! I have to agree with another resident...The only downside is the occasional flooding with heavy rain but I switched from a car to an SUV to get the Most Ground Clearance! ;) LOL

All neighborhoods are safe in this area. There’s plenty of stores, shopping, restaurants, and grocery stores. We do need more bus routes. In this area, if your care breaks down, food and essential necessities are all within walking distance. Schools are all great, and easily accessible.
Mix of new houses and old houses but mainly old. Two school districts, PASADENA ISD and CLEAR CREEK ISD. Most of this part of Houston was badly affected by Hurricane Harvey.
