Hello, everyone! I am moving to Houston and doing an apartment search right now. I am interested in living near the city, perhaps in the inner loop. I am most looking for a safe area, (safety is a big deal to me), yet one that is not too far into the suburbs, as it is my experience that those areas can be really boring. I am city girl and I can get bored rather easily, so I would like to be near an area that has a lot to offer, yet I couldn't see myself living in a downtown. What zip codes would you recommend, and which should I avoid?

77019/and Midtown, but Midtown includes 2-3 zip codes. Well, let me just throw in 7006 as well.

Going by zip code alone is not entirely useful in Houston. There are great sections and dumpy sections in most all of the inner loop zones.

When I was younger & preferred city living, I lived in the Galleria (now Uptown) area. Zipcodes can be pretty big in Houston, so that may not be the best determinant. You may also like the Kirby/Upper Kirby area.

What is your monthly budget for rent and what recreation do you want to be near? Is being close to work and a short commute important?

Those Galleria & Memorial zips above are essentially suburban.

You also know what they say about people who get bored easily....
