Not much crime. Great homes, great community. Love this city

The city is very intimate and feels like home to so many.

Crime does seem to be slightly higher in Houston than other areas from human trafficking to constant police reports of people being robbed. However, people here are friendly and prices are reasonable.

The best things about Houston are the people and if you like interacting with diverse groups of people, Houston is a good place for you. On the flip side, the weather here is terrible with constant humidity and it takes forever to get anywhere with Houston traffic.

Imagine a place that is both hot as hell and as humid and wet as a rain forest. That is Houston. Now imagine you are stuck in a car in traffic for 3 hours in this weather. Welcome to the daily commute in this city. The one advantage of living here is the extremely low cost of living. You can live very well off of a low to mid paying job.

Bad: Traffic, heat, horrible roads, lack of good jobs Good: low cost of living, cheap entertainment and plenty of things to do.

I love the city of Houston! There's a sense of community here. The people are nice and are always willing to help each other out. The food here is also really great because there's such a variety to choose from. Houston will always be my city! #HTown
