"I am also apartment hunting and would like to live near memorial park and or some good bars, coffee shops. Any advice you can provide would be great."
The area around Memorial Park is more houses than apartments. I lived in apartments just off Memorial Drive/Allen Parkway between Shepherd and Waugh for five years and thought it was very good for running. Directly across the street is the Buffalo Bayou loop (4.75 miles of trail-some of the only hills in Houston) and you can run 2 miles down Memorial (or through the neighborhood) to the park. Doing this plus the park loop and back makes a good 7 mile run.
In addition the location is very central (close to highways I-45, I-10, and only a 5 minute, one stoplight drive to downtown). Unfortunately its Houston, and you still have to drive almost everywhere.
If you want to be within walking distance of bars and coffee shops you should look at Midtown. This will put you close to another part of the Buffalo Bayou loop but maybe 5 miles from Memorial Park. Or there are also some small and older apartment complexes close to the Rice Village. This would put you next to Rice U. and lots of bars/coffee shops, but a 20 minute drive (maybe more at rush hour) from Memorial Park.
