I am moving back to Houston from school at New Mexico State University. I'm going to be attending UH-main campus and would like to be somewhere between there and my parents house. My mother was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, so I plan to go back and forth quite a bit. Does anyone know of any good areas along I-45 between Downtown and Spring? Thanks

What price range can you afford? I would suggest midtown (fringe of downtown) or the Heights. Not sure what to tell you any closer to Spring.

Garden Oaks Area is really the farthest north of Downtown I could suggest. Anything between there and 1960 is sketchy. And even 1960 is sketchy in places.

The Heights would be the best place for you to live.
