City Guide
League City
Moving to League City

With its large residential population, League City is a great place to be if you want to rent an apartment, or if you're looking for home rentals or townhouses for rent. You'll also be able to find a large selection of pet-friendly apartments in League City, thanks to the great variety of rental properties the city has to offer. You can get a local apartments locator guide for assistance, or you can take a scouting trip and drive up and down the neighborhoods, where you're sure to see some "For Rent" signs. There's no real renter's season here, so prices and availability don't change much throughout the year. Be prepared to pay first and last month's rent, plus a security payment; although if you're lucky you might be able to find a landlord who will cut you a break on these hefty deposits.

Living in League City

Living in League City poses no logistical problems, because the climate is great, it's easy to get around and it's just minutes away from big city amenities. Thanks to the area's Metropolitan Transit Authority, you can quickly get around town and even all the way into Houston by bus. As with any city this size, however, it does help to have a car, or at least a bike or scooter, to help you get around locally.

With its temperate Texas climate, League City is one of those places where you can live outdoors year-round. To make the most of this advantage, the city is home to a number of spectacular (and famous) waterfront resorts. One of the most popular is the South Shore Harbour Resort, an elegant resort and spa set along the beaches of Galveston Island. For a fantastic day on the water, you'll want to explore South Shore Harbour Marina, where you'll find extensive boat docking areas and magnificent views.

League City has a thriving community of popular restaurants and bars, so you won't need to go far afield to get a great meal. When it comes to barbecue, all roads lead to Texas, so it's no surprise that one of the most popular restaurants in town is Red River Bar-B-Que & Grill, where you'll some good old Texas-style meat. If you're looking for some country cooking, you'll find it at the aptly named Kelley's Country Cookin', where you can get all-day breakfast specials such as chili and eggs, as well as dinner favorites such as chicken and dumplings and a country fried steak of epic proportions.

To wash it all down, take a trip over to Robert's Bar & Grill, where you can enjoy a great lineup of beers and drink specials. There's also live entertainment from regional bands, as well as karaoke several nights a week. If you're more into grapes than hops, check out Bacchus Wine Bar, a sophisticated spot that shows off a really impressive wine list.

After all that wining and dining, you can get in shape by hiking, biking or jogging through League City's 20-mile-long trail system. Countryside Park offers great trails, baseball/softball fields, basketball courts and a kayak/canoe launch, while Rustic Oaks Park features bird viewing areas, volleyball and tennis courts and a fishing pond.

If golf's your game, League City is home to several popular courses. Magnolia Creek Golf Club offers 27 holes on a beautifully landscaped, 22-acre course. Another winner is South Shore Harbour Country Club, which features a challenging 27-hole course set along the banks of Galveston Bay.

If you'd rather just relax and have fun, you'll find it just a few minutes outside of town at the Kemah Boardwalk. This landmark is an old-fashioned boardwalk-style amusement park, with rides, funky retailers and fantastic restaurants. Local music lovers flock to the San Benave concert series at the Tad Akers event facility, which always showcases a variety of regional talent, including a strong roster of acoustic musicians. Another great venue for concerts is Walter Hall Park, where you can enjoy a regular schedule of locally sponsored events, especially during the summer months.

Of course, no Americana town would be complete without lots of festivals, and League City obliges with some of the best music/food fests in the region. There's Boogie Blues & Brews and who can resist a festival with a name like that? that is held every September at Walter Hall Park, and features three days of great regional blues entertainment, a chili cook-off and a huge selection of local craft beers. Walter Hall Park is also the locale for the annual Texas Music Festival, a music extravaganza held every May that offers live entertainment, food vendors, a carnival and of course a barbecue cook-off.

There's no paradox; it's simply that League City manages to be all things to all people. For those who crave a cosmopolitan ambience, League City has its own urban vibe plus it's less than half an hour away from two major metropolitan cities. For those who want small town Americana, it's all there too, right down to those summer evening band concerts and chili cook-offs in the park.

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

Methodology:

Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
