Default Moving to the Houston area from Oklahoma and needing advice on what area

Hello I'm new to these blogs and post. My husband has a job opportunity in Houston and we are needing information on where to move. We are from Oklahoma. I've read a few blogs that will sound just like mine (( sorry)) but just not getting that great of detail. He will be traveling all over the Houston area so anywhere to start off with isn't the issue its finding a community that is safe and good schools.we hope to start off renting to first herbs good feel about the area. Our son is 5 and I will be attending school as well. I've never been past Dallas so don't know much about the Houston areas and thought I could get some ideas here. Basically from what I've read is to stay north or west of Houston. Thank you all for any info!!

We are hoping at first to rent either house or apt with a budget of 1000$ monthly if less that would be great but with less I understand what comes along but we would like to be in the same area when we do buy a house since we will know the background of it.

Houston has nice suburbs in every direction, at 1k per month you could get an apartment in any. For a 3 bedroom house you would be looking at cheaper areas like Humble, Spring, North Katy.

You might look at Pearland in north Brazoria County. It's an easy drive to downtown and the highway (288) is not as congested as the main highways to Katy and Sugarland and Conroe. Further south of Pearland are smaller towns like Angleton (the county seat) -- probably a 45 minute drive to downtown -- and Lake Jackson, an hour drive to downtown.

Stock up on mosquito repellant and prepare yourself for humidity ( good for your complexion, the ladies say!) .... On the plus side, there's a lot to do in Houston. Good luck.

Disagree with 288 being less congested than all of those freeways, except for I-45 north. With the explosive growth down that way, 288 is becoming the new 290. That is, during rush hours.
