Are these two districts next to each other and are they both contained within the Loop 610? Someone recently indicated the "Museum District" is a nice place to live and apartments are well under $700.

Tell me what you think about these areas as far as safety, intimacy/city feel, low cost shopping, entertainment and most importantly job opportunities/close access to college? Thanks!

Yeah, they are both nice areas of Houston. The Museum District can get pricey in some places, but overall it is affordable.

The medical center is mostly big "complexes" that are probably not the atmosphere you are looking for. Some sections of the med center are nice, some not so much.

The definition of the museum district depends upon who you talk to and developers and others are constantly stretching the boundaries.

Some in Montrose call themselves museum district, and areas east of Main, north of Hermann Park can also be referred to as part of it. Personally I always called that are the Binz area, while others considered it part of 3rd ward.

To make a short story long, what I would call the museum district, generally west of Main, South of 59, is probably one of the prettiest parts of Houston. There are a lot of great old duplexes scattered through there, and a few small complexes on North & South Blvd, and closer to Montrose Blvd. It is home to some of Houston's priciest real estate. Expect to pay a premium. If it isn't high priced you are probably looking at something that is stretching the definition of the "museum district."

I live in the area. Safety wise, certain belts of the area are sort of sketchy. Univ of Houston, Rice, Univ of St.Thomas are close by. Apartment rentals range from around $700+ depends what you are looking for. It is a wonderful area to live.

I live in West University area. It has a lot nearby, such as the Village shopping area. Lots of well maintained communities, good access to everthing, not far at all from the Muesem district. Less traffic congestion.
