Where to Live
Westbury is primarily made up of single family homes. The area has one of the largest subdivisions in the city, giving the neighborhood a quiet, suburban vibe. Most of these homes are great for small families with children, and are one-story, post-war builds. While there are a few condominium options in the area, most of the section is covered by single-family subdivisions that make it an attractive area for new or existing buyers.
Where to Eat
When it comes to food in the area, you're most likely going to find big brand names or chain restaurants. Westbury has several shopping centers that host many of the country's biggest names. If you are looking for something quick and easy, there are always options, especially around the neighborhood's schools. With much of the area being suburban-like, there are quite a few big name grocery stores which means you can always stock your pantry and have a home cooked meal any night of the week.
What You'll See
If you move into the area, you will most likely see families out in the neighborhood with their children. The multiple schools in Westbury lend the neighborhood a very family-friendly atmosphere. While civic agencies and homeowners' associations plan community events that bring people out, for the most part this is a driving-centric part of town. There aren't many places that are in safe walking distance from the subdivisions, so most travel is accomplished via car.
Friday Night Fun
Friday nights in the community are a little quieter than some other areas of Houston. Westbury is an area rebuilding, so you won't find popular nightclubs or hot spots like in the areas closer to downtown. There are a few dive bars in the area, which are known for being laidback and having an active karaoke scene. These neighborhood bars are brimming with character and charm. There are also plenty of jazz, cabaret, and theatre options in the area. If you're a fan of discovering local talent, you will find plenty of it on a Friday night out in Westbury.
The Perfect Sunday
Many locals spend their Sundays in one of the green spaces in the area. Westbury Park offers play areas for the children as well as a swimming pool to cool off during the hot summer months. The Willow Waterhole Greenspace is a 280-acre park that comes complete with a manmade lake. This space hosts many events throughout the year and is a great place to spend Sunday surrounded by some of the best natural spaces Houston has to offer. The local YMCA is also perfect for those looking to improve their fitness or participate in a fun activity with the entire family.
