In addition to the city of Bellaire I also recommend the city of West University Place or " West U" as many of us Texans like call it. This area really gives the the small town feel as you enter the center of the city. I mostly recommend the area for families and older adults because the towns not flooded with cars and the community likes to keep it that way. If you are fond of restored homes you can also find some of the most beautiful and expensive ones located in the Pemberton area. Real estate is hot here and the prices are high.
