Where to Live
The Greater Heights area has numerous housing options available—from single-family homes to contemporary townhomes with post-modern designs. You might even find a few historic mansions on the market. While the entire neighborhood is packed with real estate, a large portion of single-family homes are clustered around West 20th Street and North Shepherd Drive.
Where to Eat
The Greater Heights has many local non-chain restaurants, both established and new. You can find a lot of unique restaurants on White Oak Drive. There are also many popular eateries in the area that serve everything from hot dogs to tacos to gastropub fare, especially along Studewood Street.
What You'll See
Colorful murals decorating the exteriors of unique local restaurants. Home hunters will also see a variety of architectural styles that reflects the neighborhood’s evolution over the decades: gorgeous early-20th century bungalows sit quietly on West 21st Street, while post-modern duplex homes on the next block grab your attention. On weekends, you can spot bicyclists and joggers on White Oak Bayou trail.
Friday Night Fun
The Greater Heights used to be a sleepy bedroom community, but it has developed a vibrant restaurant scene over the last decade. Just south of the Heights, Washington Avenue has become one of the most popular nightlife spots in the city. For a unique live show experience, check out Dan Electro’s Guitar Bar. Big Star Bar on West 19th Street is a neighborhood favorite that has a beer garden setting.
The Perfect Sunday
The Greater Heights has a large bicycling community and also has many avid runners. Locals take advantage of the trails at T.C. Jester Park when the weather is nice and warm. Buffalo Bayou Park is one of the most popular and largest parks in the city. Being located next to Allen Parkway and Downtown, this park is a great starting point for those looking to explore the city.
