Moving to Memorial
Memorial may be outside of the Loop in Houston, as in outside the 610 Loop, but it is a neighborhood that is as well-established as any in the Houston area. From the CityCentre area to Town and Country, there are blossoming areas for young professionals to call home. Additionally, the neighborhoods within Memorial are treelined and leafy- it can feel like you are in a quintessential American suburb even though you are in the middle of a large city like Houston.
Memorial is an area that extends from Uptown near the Houston Galleria to the Barker Reservoir to the west. If you find yourself in this area and are north of Buffalo Bayou and south of Interstate 10 then you are in Memorial. Many of the people who find themselves moving to Memorial these days are families. The homes in Memorial are zoned to Spring Branch ISD- some of the best public schools, including Memorial High School, are in this school district.
Moving right along, you can find yourself in Memorial and almost forget you are in the fourth largest city of Houston due to the canopy and tree cover in much of the area. Protected parks and natural areas around Buffalo Bayou are some of the most beautiful and peaceful areas in all of Houston. There are not many neighborhoods in Memorial that do not have easy access to Interstate 10 or Memorial Drive.
From shopping, to dining out at restaurants to its proximity to downtown Houston, recreational activities abound in Memorial. CityCentre is a relatively new development that has an open green space for events, get-togethers, and other social activities. Being located west of downtown Houston, Memorial residents have lots of options on where to work and where to live. Look for yourself by coming for a visit!
