What are the best and safest places to live in Houston, TX?

My friend and I are most likely relocating to Houston, TX this summer. We are debating on the best place to live because both are concern with safety. He has a child so I know that really is a major factor on where we live. I know all places have its crime, just looking for the one with less crime.

If you are a female, you need to be alert and aware of your surroundings at all times. Trust your gut feelings. Is there a lot of crime in Houston? Well, look at the supermarkets at night and you will see security guards (some are off duty HPD) carrying guns. When you starting watching the news in Houston, you will notice that almost daily, there is a shooting (often in a part of town called the southwest). Good places to live? Depends on where you are going to school or working. Do not depend on the realtor or apt finding agency to tell you what the drive time is. Do the "commute" yourself during rush hour and find out firsthand. "Inside the 610 loop" locations will often save your drive time. But look at the neighborhood-- if you see young men loitering during the work day or ppl fixing cars in the street, NOT a good sign. Good towns to live in (near or completely surrounded by Houston): W. University Place, Bellaire, Sugarland, Pearland. Good neighborhoods: Meyerland, River Oaks.

I disagree that River Oaks is teh safest place to live. It's very expensive, but that also makes it a target.

Most of the suburbs are very safe. Just check crime stats wherever you live. Find somewhere close to where you will be working. I'd be more concerned about the school district which will lead you to a safe area.

River Oaks is the best and safest place in Houston.
Homes in River Oaks start at about 3 million.

It all boils down to how much money you want to spend. The best and safest neighborhoods are more expensive than the rundown crime riddled ones. Having said that there are affordable homes in relatively safe neighborhoods in many parts of town. Suberbs like Sugarland, Katy, Woodlands, and others are also very nice. Another major factor is where will you be working, comute times can be long if you live too far from work.
