Houston, TX


But anyways, I'm going to be a secondary math teacher and am training at the University of Houston for like a month and 4 days. So, what are some things todo in H-Town that are in close proximity to U of H on Wheeler Street. Also, is U of H near downtown, close to any parks, a metro rail, etc. I'm bringing mycar btw. I'm from Ohio, went to school in North Carolina, but have never been to Texas. What is it like? What should I be aware of?

I also want to know some good soul food/BBQ spots, the location of sexy females, night clubs that aren't hood AT ALL and have a nice vibe. Appreciate itNT!!!

Edit: Thought about taking this thread to Regional, but

If you like friendly hipster white people , hang out in montrose. It's still known as a gay neighborhood, but nowadays alot of the spots have some dope +$+females [not trannies] and they always down to chill after.

Alot of the nice bars, cafes, clubs etc are in midtown close to downtown

Traffic sucks.

I usually hang around Pearland or Memorial City I stopped going to the Galleria for the fact that it's starting to become like Sharpstown

But I go to Rice Village to cop nice clothes and occasionally to Premium Goods to pick up some kicks..

So the UH on Wheeler Street is downtown? That's where I'm going to be located.

P.S. If you want the street racing scene of Houston hit up Westheimer on the weekends at night to see the street races but get ready to burn out if the lawsget there.

Downtown has a lot of nice clubs, bars, lounges. You can check out the new House of Blues and the Houston Pavillion that just got built. Good looking girlswould mostly be found around the downtown area. Galleria is a good place to shop and also Rice Village.

I'm still somewhat confused. I will be located at the UH that is on Wheeler Street. Is this location downtown? If not, what side of town is it on and howfar is it from downtown?

It's in 3rd Ward ...which is close to downtown and alot of the streets will take you to downtown or midtown. Lot of stuff to do right around UofH though ..
