Shoreacres Reviews

3 reviews
There has been a lot of flooding in the Houston area lately. The stormwater overflow contributes to water quality issues in the Gulf, so while I live very close to the water, I went down to the beach just the other day and there was an advisory for a high level of bacteria. We get lucky in the Shoreacres area because despite the fact that Houston keeps flooding, the houses around here have been here 50 years or so and have only flooded once (during Ike).

I do love the weather and seasons in the Houston area. I'm not a fan of the winter and love that I can garden year round. The community I live in is mostly retirement-aged people so here and the surrounding area I feel like it's hard to find friends my age (moved to Texas ~3 years ago). I can imagine as you get closer to the downtown area and College Station there are a lot more 20- and 30-somethings.

It is a quiet and fun neighborhood that neighbors enjoy being here. its firendly and close to Houston, Kemah, seabrook and Galveston.
Nothing serious since I've lived here, unless you consider the La Porte area. However, Shoreacres is pretty quiet, every time I go for a run or walk my dog I see a police officer driving around patrolling the area. They usually wave when they pass me too :) I wouldn't be worried to walk down the street at night in my neighborhood.
