What do you like about Houston? The interesting people and small shops/businesses in the Montrose area, lots of festivals, interesting museums, and cultural diversity. I love the Japanese gardens in Hermann Park.

What do you dislike about Houston? Drivers are incredibly rude and reckless here. The weather can be unbearably hot and humid. There is no reliable public transportation system - owning a car is absolutely necessary. The live music scene here is lacking.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? Aforementioned Montrose area. Definitely more interesting than the bland, soulless suburbs.

How expensive is it? Not very expensive, compared to other major cities.

Is it safe? Like any other major city, it depends on what area of town you're in. I'd say it's reasonably safe, overall.

How is the weather? There are only two real seasons here: 1) Terribly hot and humid, 2) Cooler. No real winter, and spring is very short.

Additional thoughts? If you're an artsy type, try Austin instead. I don't know why anyone who wasn't born here would live here or visit.

What do you like about Houston? It encompasses so many different styles. It's very diverse, and accommadating to everyone.
What do you dislike about Houston? The traffic.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? Rice village, upper kirby, and you can't mention houston without mentioning the galleria
How expensive is it? Inside the city limits, prices are pretty steep.
Is it safe? It's the safest big city I've ever been to.
How is the weather? You'll never wear a sweater. It's hotter than the rest of the country, but it's not oppressive. My favorite part is never being kept from jogging because you're snowed in.
Additional thoughts? Houston's like that guy at the end of the bar. Not terribly good looking, so it goes unnoticed by the rest of the world, but it's got a lot of heart.
