The Uptown neighborhood of Houston brings together the glam of the suburbs with the thrill of the city. Known for its retail outlets, Uptown is great for anyone who loves to shop. The most famous spot to hunt for a bargain in the area is the Galleria Shopping Mall. The building's recent expansion has made it the fifth largest mall in the country. No matter what you're looking for, you're sure to find it there.

There are plenty of places to eat and drink in Uptown as well. In a five-minute walk, you will find at least two restaurants, bars or coffee shops. From tapas to artisanal chocolate, there is no shortage of dining experience to please foodies in this neighborhood. 

The Uptown neighborhood of Houston has a variety of residential buildings. Apartments are close to single-family homes and both types of living spaces are near enough to grocery stores and attractions to be able to walk. Rather than taking your car out on the town, you can walk to your destination. 

The Houston Country Club golf course is located within the boundaries of Uptown. This is the perfect neighborhood for those who love their tee time. If you love being outside but don't golf, head east to the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center, located just outside the neighborhood lines.
