Midtown Houston is a pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use urban community located in the heart of the city. Many people choose to make Midtown their home because the area offers the convenience of amenities and services at your doorstep. Midtown boasts a variety of dining establishments, pubs and lounges, retail shopping, cultural arts venues, outdoor activity, green space and more. Where is Midtown Houston? An extension of downtown, the boundaries of Midtown can loosely be defined as South of 45, West of 288, North of 59 and East of Bagby Street. The area lies between Downtown Houston and the Houston Medical Center providing easy access to both. Zip codes overlapping with Midtown include 77004 and 77006. 

Who lives in Midtown? According to the Midtown Management District Board: "The average Midtowner is between 25-40 years of age, owns a pet or two, involved in the community, gives to charity, culturally in tune with the community, healthier because they ride bikes or walk, they don't sit back and watch the action... they are the action." Midtown's prime location between downtown and the Houston Medical Center - the two largest employment centers in the area with over 200,000 jobs - makes it a great choice for those who wish to live and work in the same area.

Summer is the busiest moving season of the year. Whether renting or buying, more families and individuals pack up their belongings and head to a new home over the June, July and August months than at any time the rest of the year. For many of us the reason we move over the summer is to match the school year cycle. Whether a family is waiting until the end of the school year, or college kids are moving between semesters, it seems that once people start the cycle of moving in the summer, it remains a habit well beyond graduation.
