River Oaks

Central Houston

Make your way through the lush and luxurious River Oaks area, which contains some of the most coveted (and expensive) real estate in the city. But it’s not only the mansions that draw onlookers; there are plenty of boutiques, restaurants and art galleries that give the inner-loop spot its character. 

 

Houston Heights

Northwest Central Houston

Northeast of Downtown sits a section of historic neighborhoods that date back to the late 1800s. Residents once flocked to the area to escape the big city, but today it’s the hipsters and young couples that are drawn to its rich and character-filled architecture, mom and pop-type shops and funky restaurants. 

 

West University/Rice Village

West Houston

This area is one of the most sought after districts in the city. Home to Rice University and the pedestrian-friendly Rice Village Shopping Center, the neighborhood appeals to families and young professionals alike.

 

Galleria/Uptown

West Houston

More than 700 retailers, fine dining, sports, and hotels sit within two square miles. Inside Texas' largest shopping mall, the Galleria, more than 375 stores, two hotels, an ice rink and endless food options make it a popular destination.

 

Memorial/Energy Corridor

West Houston

West Houston-a hotbed for business and development-is quickly emerging as one of the most thriving neighborhoods in the city. In recent years, CityCentre-a pedestrian-friendly, 37-acre expanse, brings together casual and fine dining, shopping, retail, office space, and residential living.

Houston's City Centre has it all, and the best part is you don't even have to leave the Memorial Energy Corridor area to get a big city  atmosphere.

Midtown

Sandwiched between Downtown and the Museum District, the trendy Midtown neighborhood offers a range of restaurant opportunities, energetic nightlife options and boutique shopping that attracts a bevy of young professionals to the area.
