Bellaire, Houston, TX: A Tranquil Community in a Big City

I lived in Bellaire for about four years, from 2007 to 2011. I enjoyed my time there and found it to be an excellent place to live, but of course it depends what you're looking for. Considering the fairly upscale community feel of the area, real estate can be surprisingly affordable; however, for the more extravagant types there are plenty of multimillion dollar homes as well. The city does provide a lot of services to its residents, such as excellent schools, an advanced recycling program, a local library and cutting-edge recreational facilities.

Bellaire is a family-oriented community, so night life is pretty lacking. That never really bothered me, because all the excitement of Houston is easily accessible, and there are a lot of great (but mostly casual) restaurants nearby for a quiet evening out on the town. However, this does not mean that the culinary offerings of Bellaire are scant; in fact, tons of local restaurants, such as my personal favorite, the Union Kitchen, offer up some really innovative fare at accessible prices. Aside from food, Bellaire has a really great parks system, and when that Texas heat really gets going, nothing beats the extensive new aquatics center!

I personally think that strip-mall-type suburban communities are a bit depressing to live in, but Bellaire has a lot of character. Many of the local shops are unique to the area, and of course there is no shortage of retail elsewhere in Houston. Overall, I would say that Bellaire has a certain charm to it that is really quite appealing. Those familiar with the Houston area will find that it has some similarities with the West University neighborhood, but is much more of a community on its own. There really is quite a lot going on year-round. It's not really the type of place that would attract visitors, but it's definitely a great place for families or anyone who just wants to live in a nice, quiet area where all of their needs are comfortably met.
