If you are looking for furnished apartments in Houston, you are in luck. Houston is a city with many diverse neighborhoods, so you are sure to find just the right apartments to meet your needs. When you first look at a map of Houston, there seem to be two downtowns. That is an accident of Houston's lack of zoning laws. However, there are three broad neighborhood categories defined by the major highways: "Inside The Loop" is the central city, "Outside the Loop" is close to the center city, and "Outside the Beltway" is suburbia. Following is an overview of some of Houston's popular neighborhoods in each category to assist you in your decision.
Inside The Loop
Houston's Downtown has become a dynamic business, theater and entertainment district. Downtown hosts four professional sports teams, numerous performing arts companies and enough restaurants and nightlife to keep you entertained for years. In fact, Houston is often listed in the country's Top 10 cities for dining. And Downtown's Main Street is Houston's center for nightlife, with more than 70 bars and clubs. Living in a Houston short term rental in the Downtown area might be a great choice for those who want the convenience of being smack in the middle of the urban center.
Midtown is situated between Downtown and the Museum District. In this trendiest of neighborhoods, Houston furnished apartments often take the form of lofts or high-rise apartments. This pedestrian-centered neighborhood is home to young professionals that love the busy ambiance and abundance of delicious food choices. Midtown is also known for its art galleries and theaters.
Just southwest of downtown, the Museum District houses 18 diverse cultural institutions that host millions of visitors each year. And in addition to the museums, there are a variety of other attractions such as Houston's only 4D theater.
Montrose is an eccentric and diverse neighborhood, where you are as likely to find fine dining, antiques, art galleries and museums as you are to find tattoo parlors and vintage clothing boutiques. Montrose also boasts large Hispanic and gay populations. With a variety of architectural styles and its mishmash of high culture and trendiness, Montrose is most often described as “eclectic”. If this sounds like the type of neighborhood that would be right for your clients, consider looking for your short term rentals in Houston in Montrose.
This well-known neighborhood is situated between Uptown and Downtown. It is home to River Oaks Shopping Center, the oldest shopping center in Texas, and the second oldest in the nation, and home to the famous River Oaks Movie Theatre.
