Would living in Sugarland or Clear Lake be too much of a commute?
People do it all the time, so I'm sure it's ok. Sugarland is nice, and if you work 7a-7p you won't have to worry about traffic. I think the commute is 30-45min (without traffic). Are you considering buying a house? Sugarland and Clear Lake have beautiful neighborhoods. Otherwise there are various apartments in the Kirby and Buffalo Speedway area that are nice. I'm not sure what your price range is but those apartments can range from $700 and up. I like living in the heart of the city, so Sugarland and Clearlake are out for me.
Are you considering visting before you move? I would suggest looking at areas around the Medical Center, Sugarland, and Clearlake to make your decision. Not to add confusion to your choices, but Pearland is closer to the Medical Center than both and the homes are nice as well. The have apartments right off 288, which leads you directly into the Medical Center. I don't know the name of the apartments, but there are only like 2 or 3 complexes off 288. The area is pretty new and still developing.
Have you been to Houston before? Are you familiar with the area?
