    Renter's guide to Pasadena, TX

    Pasadena is a suburb of Houston, and the second largest city in Harris County, Texas. It’s also a principal city within the Houston–The Woodlands–Sugar Land metropolitan area. Historically famous for its strawberry farms, the city still holds an annual festival dedicated to the plump fruit. It’s among the top 150 suburbs with the lowest cost of living in Texas and is popular with families.

    With a population of 153,909, Pasadena is the 17th most populated city in Texas, and is far larger than most of the surrounding cities and suburbs. For example, it’s almost 10 times more populated than the nearby city of South Houston, and 3 times larger than Deer Park. Compared to Houston proper, however, it’s almost 15 times smaller, ensuring it doesn’t feel too much like the big city, and retains a more suburban vibe.

    Pasadena is just 13 miles east of downtown Houston, which can typically be reached in less than 30 minutes via the Pasadena freeway. The Sam Houston Tollway which loops Houston, passes through the center of the city, allowing quick and easy access in any direction. Dallas, for example, is 250 miles north, while San Antonio is around 210 miles to the west.

    Pasadena has hot, humid summers and cool to mild winters, with rainfall throughout the year. July is generally the warmest month, with highs of 92°F, while January sees lows of 45°F. The rain is heaviest in June, which can see over 7 inches of rainfall. The city gets around 55 inches of rain per year, but snow is extremely rare.

    Tips for renting in Pasadena, TX

    If you’re planning a move to a suburb of Houston in order to commute to a new job in the big city, Pasadena is a great choice, primarily because of its proximity to central Houston. State Highway 255 passes through the north of the city, and can take you downtown in under 20 minutes, though rush-hour times can be slightly longer.

    However, if you don’t own a private vehicle, commutes can be far more chaotic, as public transport options are extremely limited. As such, it’s almost a necessity to own a car if you plan to commute downtown. However, a number of local routes operate, as well as taxi and ride hailing services, making it easy to get around town.

    The southeast end of the city that borders Clear Lake is generally considered more upscale than other parts, and is far from the refineries, and much closer to the beach. Check out Brookwood, Pine Brook, and Park Shadows, which feature upscale apartments in a more peaceful and less polluted part of the city. The flip side is that the commute to downtown is marginally longer.

    Things for renting

    Living in Pasadena, TX

    Despite being among the largest of Houston’s suburbs, Pasadena retains a suburban feeling, and doesn’t seem too urbanized. It enjoys a great location, with proximity to the beach, and downtown Houston alike. You’ll find most of what you need within the city limits, though the nightlife is somewhat quiet.

    However, some areas of the city are home to a number of chemical processing plants and refineries, which can reduce the air-quality in the city and cause a bad smell. They also make certain areas appear unattractive. Public transport is also quite difficult to navigate, while several roads are in need of repair.

    Things to do in Pasadena, TX

    The city contains 43 parks in total, with over 14 miles of trails to explore, sports facilities including tennis courts and pools, a golf course, and picnic areas.

A large water park in the center of it is also popular with the kids.

    There are several shopping centers to cater to your needs: the Pasadena Oaks Shopping Center contains several national stores, as well as a few independent, specialist stores. There are also plenty of places to eat, and even a kids' area. The larger and more central Macroplaza Mall is currently fairly run-down, with many stores sitting empty.

    One of the main attractions in the city, and a must-visit for kids and adults alike, is the Houston Space Center Museum, which offers tours, exhibitions and a gift shop. It’s packed full of interesting facts and things to do.
