Moving to Montrose
A city as large as Houston is best thought of as multiple, smaller towns within one larger city. The Montrose area of Houston is a perfect example of this idea. Montrose is not a big area compared to some of the suburban communities that we have highlighted here in this series of blog posts: “Areas We Serve.” However, within the four-square miles of Montrose is a great deal of culture, nightlife, and opportunity for growth among its residents.
In terms of location in the city of Houston, Montrose is located Washington Ave. to the north and Interstate 69 to the south. You could not ask for a location that is better for access to downtown, jobs, restaurants, shopping, and other leisure activities that many of us value highly. Within its borders you will find that Montrose is a place that feels like you are in a small, tight knit community.
Montrose is known as being a place where the art scene is paramount. Many important art galleries are located within the community such as the Rothko Chapel and the Menil Collection. These are world renowned art collections that frequently change the exhibits and art pieces that are displayed. Additionally, the Museum District of Houston is just a short drive away from Montrose with its Museum of Natural Science, Health Museum and The Houston Zoo.
Adjusting to a new place can be difficult. If you are moving to Montrose after a family law case then you need to know basic information about a place before moving there. We can’t think of a better way to explore a new area than to simply pay a visit to Montrose ahead of time. Get a feel for the community, learn about its history, and decide if it is a place that feels like home to you.
