Getting to Know The Houston Heights

Updated: Oct 16, 2018

Are you looking to get to know the Houston Heights and all the great opportunities what the area has for not only Living , but for great food, shopping and schools!

Northwest 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 home to diverse Houstonians that are drawn to its rich and character-filled architecture, mom and pop-type shops and funky restaurants. Find something you never knew you wanted at one of 19th Street’s quaint boutiques. Thrift stores, antique havens, and cafes prove to be popular at the Heights-strip. Stop by for the “First Saturday Arts Market” on the first Saturday of each month for live music, crafts, plants and artwork.

We recommend a few resources to to really get to know the are.


A popular historic district, The Heights is also one of the Hottest Inner Loop Neighborhoods for accessibility and real estate appreciation. Houston Heights homes are popular thanks to:

  • ACCESSIBILITY: Houston Heights is ranked amongst the Most “Walkable” Houston Neighborhoods. The Heights has over 450 Yelp-rated establishments, many just a few blocks from residential communities.

  • PARKS & TRAILS: The Heights is also one of the top communities in the state for “Fun Family Activities” with outdoor hotspots like Heights Hike and Bike Trail and White Oak Bayou Trail nearby.

  • GREAT COMMUTE: The Heights offers an excellent commute to downtown, Houston’s Inner Loop, Medical Center, Galleria and major Houston highways.

  • STRONG REAL ESTATE APPRECIATION: The Height’s real estate market has been one of the best performing 

  • EMERGING SCHOOLS: Harvard Elementary (with a school zoning map covering parts of the Heights) is ranked as highly as elementary schools in premier neighborhoods like Memorial, Tanglewood, Bellaire and West University.

  • STRONG COMMUNITY: The Houston Heights Association (HHA) is one of the most active communities in Houston. They maintain historic sites, enforce deed restrictions, run the constable program and plan fabulous activities like the Lights in the Heights tours.

  • HISTORIC HOMES: The Heights is one of the few neighborhoods in Houston that features a fantastic collection of well-preserved Victorian architecture.

Navigating the Houston Heights real estate can be tricky with the deed restrictions, proximity to major thoroughfares (which can hurt resale), homes with choppy floor plans (which can hurt resale), and diversity of builders (some are far superior to others).
