Houston Heights Video Tour

[Music]

the Houston Heights is the earliest plan

community in Texas it's made up of

tree-lined streets eclectic shops and

boutiques eateries bars and beer gardens

parks walking trails and of course

historic homes located northwest of

downtown Houston

the heights as it's commonly referred to

has a rich history and a strong

community although new structures and

custom-built homes are popping up in

some places many people who live here

choose to live in a historic home that's

been restored but what makes it truly

unique from all other Houston

communities is its small-town feel along

Heights Boulevard is a walking path

lined with big trees gazebos shops and a

quaint B&B the paths are frequented by

residents jogging riding bikes or just

taking a leisurely stroll the heights is

proud of its history and the history of

the nation on heights Boulevard is the

world war ii memorial plaza which

features a symmetrical wall covered with

names of Houston Heights soldiers who

served in World War two

there are also 23 bollards surrounding

the memorial each tells a story of World

War two
