The first time I came down to Washington was early in my college life. I was back home and went to meet some friends for a concert at Walter's on Washington. The venue is great, in that it is small and intimate, something you miss at a lot of other Houston venues. After that night, I didn't go back that direction until I got a job down the street on W Gray. Getting off at midnight is never really fun, but then sitting in traffic at Washington really put icing on the cake. People were crossing the streets as they pleased, and trust me, there were a lot of people. They were all young and spry, hanging on each other for support. What I gathered from this, as well as from various conversations with my friends that live in the area, is that the people here love it. There are any number of bars and night clubs in a small vicinity, and the apartments located on the street or around it are occupied by people just like you; young, looking to have fun and looking to do it on Washington. I can only imagine that the apartments are expensive here. They look new and well-maintained, plus it is in the heart of River Oaks, one of the most expensive places in Houston. The restaurants on Washington are great as well, providing you with an ample selection of any style of food. If you are looking to move here with your family, know that there will be noise emanating from the street at all hours. Also, your kids will be going to an HISD school, which if you would like them to get a good education, is somewhat avoidable with a plethora of private schools to the south. This little stretch is perfect for the young adult or professional looking to have a good time. Shopping isn't far away with options in either the Galleria or River Oaks. A quick drive will get you to either place.
