Being the 4th largest metropolitan area in the US, Houston is as diverse as it is widespread. So California based NerdWallet Inc., an on-line tool for financial and credit advice, decided to compare Houston neighborhoods to find the top 10 for families and Millennials.
The study found that the #1 neighborhood for Millennials in Houston is the greater Third Ward, which is close to Midtown and downtown. However, the best Houston neighborhood for families is Kingwood, which is in north Houston outside Beltway 8.
Other top neighborhoods that made the list for Millennials are Washington Avenue/Memorial Park, neartown Montrose, Midtown, downtown, Museum Park, Astrodome area, MacGregor, Mid West and Fourth Ward.
Other top neighborhoods for families include University Place, Braeswood, Westbranch, Lake Houston, Afton Oaks/River Oaks, Addicks Park Ten, Memorial, Meyerland and the Texas Medical Center.
The study compared 88 neighborhoods that were geographically defined by the City of Houston. The best neighborhoods for Millennials were based on the rental environment, population age, low unemployment and percentage of single residents. On the other hand, neighborhoods fit for families were based on the percentage of residents who were married or with children, stable neighbors and low unemployment.
Previously, NerdWallet named Pearland, Sugar Land and League City as the best places to raise a family in the US.
