My boyfriend and I will be relocating to the Houston area within a few weeks and are both unfamiliar with the city. We are ages 23 and 25 and more than likely will be working downtown. I was wondering if any of you could give us advice on good neighborhoods to begin looking for a place to live?

We would prefer to not live downtown, and around a 30 min commute would be fine. We are both very outdoorsy people who enjoy biking, hiking, and water sports. Is is possible to live in an area near the water (Houston Lake?) and still be relatively close to downtown?

We are looking for a place around $1300 a month, preferably a house with a garage and small yard. Are there any neighborhoods you would recommend we check out, and also avoid?

Thanks everyone!

If you are interested in watersports, also look up Clear Lake, Texas or try a search for Kemah or Seabrook, Tx (this is an area comprised of several small towns and a piece of Houston). I think it's about a 30 minute commute to downtown. Other people on here would actually know. There is a bus that runs from here to downtown, too. Also you would be midways between Houston and Galveston, where you will find a LOT of water

You will find loads of good neighborhoods in this area.

Those will be your best options if being near water is a must.
