A few decades ago, many people dreamed about buying a house in the suburbs, where they could start their own family, count on the support of a welcoming community, and enjoy some peace and quiet far from the crowds.
These days, more and more Houston residents are moving inside the 610 Loop from the suburbs. While every family has its own reasons to relocate, as an admitted “Inner Loop Snob” I am have my own ideas as to why that’s happening for us. Here’s my take on the 180-degree switch that’s taking people out of the suburbs, and into the city.
There are many good reasons why people are still flocking to Houston. FYI, for anyone considering a move to my favorite city, we’re a welcoming, vibrant, diverse community with impressive cultural heritage. As the fourth-largest city in the US, and one of the fastest growing, Houston is much appreciated for its sound economy and appealing job market – even after the oil prices dropped and the market got a little bumpy.
Those of you who already love Houston as much as I do don’t need me to tell you that Houston has no shortage of local attractions including the Museum of Fine Arts, Downtown Aquarium, and Space Center Houston. We’ve also got world class theatre, top-ranked schools and universities, and did I mention the food? It’s heaven for Foodies.
