Good Luck Finding Parking In These Houston Areas
We Houstonians love our cars, and it shows with crazy traffic and impossible parking. In a recent study, Trulia compiled a list of the worst places to park in Houston and rated the neighborhoods from 100 (super easy to find a parking spot) to 0 (literally impossible.) The very worst spot was a residential neighborhood, Northshore, with a rating of 3. According to Trulia, it's even harder to find a spot there than in Manhattan or San Francisco.
Memorial was rated the third-most-difficult place to park in Houston, with a score of 16. Trulia’s map of amenities in the area show why you're stuck driving in circles for half an hour: restaurants, spas and shopping galore. Downtown Houston ranked sixth-lowest for street parking, no surprise with its density and attractions like Minute Maid Park and Toyota Center.
You'll be able to find a parking spot much more easily if you're hitting a restaurant in Binz/Museum District or Midtown. Trulia analysts say their scores of 20 and 19, respectively, are considered adequate for commercial districts.
