Back to Neighborhoods

Nestled in Houston’s inner loop just minutes away from Downtown and the Galleria, this charming community dates back to the late 1800’s and boasts massive oak trees, Victorian and Bungalow style homes, bike trails and beautiful parks. The Heights not only embraces its art and culture with its many festivals and gatherings it also features some of the city’s best restaurants from high-end steak houses, BYOB spots and ample outdoor patio style eateries. West 19th Street is a hub for the arts, shopping and dining, while White Oak Drive offers a range of live music venues. Stop by for the “First Saturday Arts Market” on the first Saturday of each month for live music, crafts, plants and artwork.
