An amazing community where everyone looks out for each other! Although the area was damaged badly in Hurricane Harvey, it is constantly in a state of building and improving. Very family friendly, with good private and public schools, churches and synagogues. Lots of parks and green spaces. But it's also very close to the Houston Medical Center and Downtown, and easily accessible to all directions by the nearby 610 highway. Overall, I love living here!

Plenty of museums downtown along with great clubs and bars with good musical acts, mostly local. There are great art museums downtown too! I have no clue about the comedy acts or other things.
I can get everything I need in this area, it's very convenient because we're so close to the Loop and are only 10-15 minutes from downtown. There are a lot of places to eat that are easily accessible, as is the Galleria and many boutique shops in that area and Meyerland Plaza with a lot of more popular stores.
