Where to Live
Houstonians looking for a relatively low cost of living will find what they're looking for in Independence Heights. Mostly filled with single-family homes, there are plenty of fixer uppers just waiting to get renovated as Independence Heights continues to build up. This neighborhood is bordered by two major highways so those seeking a quieter home life will want to consider a home closer to the middle of the Independence Heights.
Where to Eat
If you're looking for delicious soul food, Independence Heights should be your first stop. There are plenty of hole-in-the wall businesses with some of the best southern-inspired food Houston has to offer - and are at very affordable prices too. Conveniently located close to the Houston Loop, you're never too far away from chain options or fast food stops. However, hidden gems can be found if you're looking for Cajun grub or delicious Tex-Mex fare.
What You'll See
Currently up-and-coming, Independence Heights is a relatively quieter area. You won't see many people out and about, so having a car in the area is a must. People have put down roots in Independence Heights, so don't be surprised to meet people who have been living and working in the area for generations. The population of the area is relatively small for Houston with only about 14,000 residents, so you will find it less busy than other sections of the city.
Friday Night Fun
Independence Heights isn't far from the 610 loop, which means you're never far from areas of the city with a more booming nightlife. However, if you're not in the mood to go all out, Independence Heights has Bingo halls that are perfect for family outings. The neighborhood also has a full-service brewery that offers music and classic arcade games.
The Perfect Sunday
The perfect Sunday is most likely spent tending to your community garden, Beauty's Garden, offering cooking and nutritional classes. This community project is a great way to meet neighbors and enrich the people living and working in Independence Heights. This quiet section of the city is undergoing a major renovation, so you might find yourself involved with other community development projects. You could also visit the community center and park, which offers a full playground for the little ones.
