It depends on what you consider affordable housing. Dallas is large with many suburbs with many parks.

There is property in and around Seguin and Guadalupe County which might be suitable for a Travel Trailer or a Cabin. Of course, any restrictions would have to be verified before a purchase was made. ... more

I know that City of Houston and Harris County are being very diligent about spraying because of the number of deaths from West Nile. I'm sure the frequency varies from area to area, and I'd have to know about where you live/want to live to be more helpful. As for anything else you can do, what I've heard and read is: 1) don't go out in early morning hours or dusk hours; 2) use a spray and use plenty of it, and it should contain Deet: and 3) watch your own yard for standing water and eiminate that. Item 3 could help in both the mosquito attracting problem and the preservation of the integrity of your slab foundation ( if you have one, and most of us do in this area!). Anything else I can do to help? Don't hesitate to contact me. After 38 years, you'd think I'd be burned-out, but I find that I am energized with buyers and sellers both who are committed to working as a team member with me. ... more

Hey Alison,

There are several parks in Houston to run in. I would say that it is pretty safe to run Terry Hershey park and Memorial Park by yourself during the day, but I would not run anywhere by yourself at night. Going back to the previous questions about the bar scene, Washington is a good place to bar hop and Memorial park is very close to that area. You may want to start your search close to that area. Hope this helps!

The smell will occur sometimes through the year depending on the weather.
If you move towards the intercoastal waterway (Padre Island) the smell seems to go away.
The smell does not happen every day of the year anyway.
Also depends where you want to live and how much you want to spend.
Any questions, I will be glad to help.

Here is a good link that details the areas for public access to the Lake:

The main public areas are Windy Point, Volente Beach, and Hippie Hollow.

There is also access for canoes and smaller boats at several spots closer to Lady Bird Lake, which is near Down town:

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have more questions! Thank you.

Beaumont has two city owned piers on the Neches River. One is downtown and the other is at the end of Pine Street. 5 minutes from Beaumont is Boomtown (Rose City / Vidor). Boomtown even has a nice waterslide for the kids to play on if they get bored fishing. Hope this helps! ... more

How about the university track or the high school track? Those are always good places with lots of people around and tend to be nice and friendly places.

Sorry this is way conservative Texas for you. Surprisingly enough there are lots of cities talking about it now, but very few taking action or wanting to spend the funds.

Doris Murdock answered:
The two largest parks in Houston are Memorial Park and Hermann Park. Both have golf courses open to the public. Hermann Park sits on the edge of Rice University and the Texas Medical Center, and includes the Houston Zoo, Miller Outdoor Theater, and a Japanese Garden. Memorial Park is located north of River Oaks and offers tennis courts, softball fields, and several bike and running/exercise trails. Dog parks are just coming into their own. Our most attractive dog park is west of Houston and called Millie Bush Dog Park. There are 2 pools for larger dogs and a separate area and pool for smaller dogs. It's worth the drive! ... more
