Welcome to the hustle and bustle! Best known as Houston’s heart of retail – The Galleria, Post Oak Boulevard, Uptown Park, and just across 610 from the posh Highland Village – it’s a hotspot for tourists and local shoppers alike. It’s also booming with business of all sorts (comparable to the downtowns of Atlanta and Pittsburgh), and home to the Consulates for 14 different countries, making it a melting pot of industries and cultures – and almost always full of activity!
PERFECT FOR: Anyone with a passion for fashion, a love for multicultural people-watching, or anyone who offices in the area, as it can be a chore to get in and out of at peak hours.
PERKS & QUIRKS: The Williams Waterwall, giant chrome rings above Uptown intersections, the best H-E-B in the city.
FUN FACT: The Becks Prime patio at Westheimer and Augusta is home to the largest Live Oak in Harris County. (Incidentally, also the largest BLT.)
