Houston Heights

One of Houston's most historic neighborhoods

Houston Heights (often referred to simply as “The Heights”) is a community located in northwest-central Houston, Texas, United States. “The Heights” is often referred to colloquially to describe a larger collection of neighborhoods adjacent to and including the actual Houston Heights. However, Houston Heights has its own history, distinct from Norhill and Woodland Heights. In 2013 CNN Money ranked the Houston Heights as no. 4 in its Top 10 big city neighborhoods ranking.

The Houston Heights, one of the earliest planned communities in Texas, is located 4 miles northwest of Downtown Houston. A National Geographic article says “stroll the area’s broad, tree-canopied esplanades and side streets dotted with homes dating from the early 1900s and you may think you’ve landed in a small town.” John Nova Lomax said that the Heights, which he describes as “Houston’s own mini-Austin,” had many “low-key” restaurants and beer gardens. A National Geographic Traveler article stated that the Houston Heights “maintains a quirky sense of individuality” and “flourishes as a destination for foodies, architecture buffs, and creative types.”

The City of Houston operates parks within and around the Houston Heights. The Heights is the locale of Houston’s White Linen Night, held annually in late July or early August. The Heights is served by Houston Independent School District (HISD). Houston Community College provides community college services.
