Where to Live
The majority of houses in Central Southwest are clustered inside the triangle formed by Alameda Road, Main Street and Sam Houston Parkway/Beltway 8. There many affordable houses on the market in the area, as well as pricier newly built homes. For a smaller abode, there are also many condominium options throughout the area.
Where to Eat
Central Southwest’s culinary options are a result of the neighborhood’s history, hosting many Tex-Mex, Salvadoran, Honduran, and even Colombian restaurants to choose from. There is a large variety of restaurants along Main Street and Beltway 8, but it’s best to get off the freeway and drive around the neighborhood to discover local establishments that serve food more unique than chain restaurants.
What You'll See
Strip malls every other block with subdivisions in between. Due to Houston’s lack of zoning laws, commercial and residential real estate tend to mix together. Since Hobby Airport is very close to the neighborhood, expect to see commercial jets flying overhead. Although Central Southwest is quite urbanized now, you will still see vacant lots and pockets of rural areas.
Friday Night Fun
There are many restaurants and bars along Cullen Boulevard and Sam Houston Parkway/Beltway 8. Due to the various Latin American establishments in the neighborhood, there are many live performances by Tejano bands every week. It is a great way to discover and experience a new musical genre for those unfamiliar with Mexican or Latino culture.
The Perfect Sunday
People enjoy a jog or spend the day with their kids at Blueridge Park and Schweppe Park. The neighborhood is a typical Texas suburb, so it is common to see neighbors out gardening or having a backyard BBQ when the weather is nice and warm, especially during football season. Likewise, there are many sports bars along Almeda Road to watch the home team play.
