Hi! I am starting my first job out of college in La Porte, TX. I understand the far eastern area is mostly industrial and residentials for families. But since I wouldn't wanna be too far from work, I am looking into anywhere between Houston and La Porte. I am looking for an area where alot of single/young-professionals live in the eastern area. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

AND How is the traffic on 225 during rush hours? Thanks!

EDIT: Is Clear Lake a good place for a young professional?

As far as homes for young professionals...the eastern suburbs...won't be too friendly...it's all family living out this way. Now Clear Lake is a healthy mix of both families and young professionals but budget wise isn't as friendly as the eastern suburban areas like Baytown, La Porte, Deer Par,k or Mont Belvieu...but those areas are full of families. Traffic wise...Clear Lake isn't friendly you would most likely be using Tx-146 and well...it needs to be expanded more than it has been...But overall if you must live east and you can afford the housing costs Clear Lake/Nassau Bay/Webster would probably be an area you'd like.

Thanks for the response. Clear Lake seems to be a good place that fits my needs! I come from the philadelphia, and was taken by surprise to find small really luxurious apartments significantly cheaper than it would have been in philly or nyc! So budget is no problem.

I doubt it will be nearly as much fun as living in the "inner loop" but I heard Kemah Lake is a decent place to hang out! I'm really excited to move!

Clear Lake would be nice - Look at The Voyage apartments on NASA Parkway or Village on the Lake on Space Center.

I just graduated school in PA and also am working in la Porte starting in a few weeks. I was wondering if you found have settled on an apartment yet? As of right now I am considering apartments in nassau bay, league city, kemah, and seabrook. Are there any places I should rule out? My biggest concern is safety, and since I do not know the area well I do not know which places are safer than others.

Any of those of those places should be fine except for Seabrook. Stay north of FM 646 (if you end up in Bacliff or in Dickinson then you've gone too far) and you should be okay.

What is your budget for apts? There are a lot of nice luxury apts. in the Clear Lake area such as Village on the Lake, Villas at Edgewater, Village on the Lake.

Another vote for Clear Lake - it's your best bet for anything on the east side of Houston.

A few years back, I had a few single friends living in Clear Lake, and they enjoyed it. I couldn't imagine that it's changed too much in the last 3 years.

It's still the same here.

And that Voyager apartment complex approaches $2,000/mo for a 2/2. Definitely a nice place though, with lots of younger folks.
