West University/Rice Village

Sandwiched between Highway 59 and the 610 Loop, the tree-lined West University area is one of the most sought after districts in the city. Home to Rice University and the pedestrian-friendly Rice Village Shopping Center, the neighborhood appeals to families and young professionals alike. Swing by the Village for fashion-forward finds at local and nationally-owned boutiques, bites at one of the many restaurants and happy hour sips at the night life hot spots along Morningside Boulevard
