About Us



Houston boasts an expansive, fashionable style scene. If you love shopping malls, you can’t beat the Galleria, the fourth largest shopping mall, an upscale shopping experience, which attracts guests from all over the world.

The city offers ample shopping options and styles for all tastes and budgets. Rice Village, with its eclectic mix of shops and coffee houses, is located within walking distance of the Texas Medical Center, and other favorite shopping districts such as Highland Village, River Oaks, Uptown Park or the Montrose neighborhood are easily accessible by car, bus or taxi.


"I try to keep plugged into arts community in Houston. I am a big classical music nerd. Houston has been really great."
