The neighborhood feel and tree lined streets, really just about everything.
The Heights is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Houston founded originally as a “utopian community” in the late 1890s. Named from the fact that its elevation is just 23 feet higher than Downtown Houston, it’s a great place to be during one of Houston’s inevitable floods–as well as year round.
The Heights life is a good one. It’s an extremely walkable neighborhood inside the loop just minutes from Downtown, with amazing restaurants, spacious parks with amazing trees, and adorable Victorian houses and well-kept Bungalows. The Heights has an amazing food and bar scene–despite being a dry county–and is home to some of our most favorite murals.
Although the “Greater Heights” area includes areas off Washington, Northside and even Oak Forest, this guide is mainly talking about the specific Heights area, which we’re defining as north of I-10, south of 610, west of Studemont and east of Shepherd.
