What Its Known For
MED CENTER, HOUSTON
Tucked in between Hwy 59 and 288, the Houston Med Center has way more to offer than just hospitals (although those are impressive — did we already brag about how it’s the largest medical center in the world?) Surrounding the main hub, you’ve got gorgeous green spaces, world-class museums, pro-sports stadiums, and Rice University within minutes.
Perhaps one of the biggest perks of living in the Med Center area is that if you play your cards right and lease a place near NRG, you won’t have to pay for Rodeo parking (and if you aren’t from around here and don’t know how hype Houston Rodeo season is yet, it’s time to go cowboy boot shopping.) Being a Med Center resident also means you’re next-door neighbors with Hermann Park! Enjoy the green space, visit the critters at the Houston Zoo, or spend some time checking out the exhibits at the Museum of Natural Science. If you’re an art lover, the Houston Museum of Art is a must-visit, and pro tip: it’s free admission on Thursdays!
APARTMENTS IN THE MED CENTER
Like many areas of Houston, the apartment options in this neighborhood have range. You can lease a unit at an older complex for a super affordable rate, or go full-on luxury mode and get a high-rise penthouse with a pristine view of the skyline. If you work in the Med Center, you may even be eligible for discounts or specials at some complexes!
