Memorial is a neighborhood on Houston's west side. The northern border is made up by the Katy Freeway and the Sam Houston Tollway​, which cuts through the center of Memorial, running north-south. Residents in the area rely on personal vehicles to get around, as pubic transportation is quite limited.

The Memorial City Mall is in the northeast corner of the area and has variety of stores, an ice skating rink, movie theater and orchestral rehearsal space. Shoppers will hear the sounds of a symphony as they peruse their favorite clothing racks.

The Nottingham Shopping Center is another option for those hunting for clothes, food and more. It's located just south of the Katy Freeway on North Kirkwood Road.
