At Memorial Hills, luxury doesn’t end with the shimmering saltwater pool or alluring fireside lounge. Step outside your front door and find yourself in Houston’s thriving Memorial Heights neighborhood. Looking for things to do in Memorial Heights? Here’s a list of local attractions to get the fun started:

Wine and Dine
For some of the freshest and finest ingredients in Houston, look no further than Chatter’s Café and Bistro. This health-conscious eatery combines the best from Italy, Greece, America, and the Mediterranean for a pleasant dining experience. For lunch, try the tapas plate with hummus, kalamata olives, and grilled pita bread. At dinnertime, the Dijon chicken draws rave reviews.

Started as a grocery store in 1961, Stanton City Bites has since evolved into a sandwich shop worth visiting, with a wide variety of creative burgers and sandwiches. Stop into this unpretentious lunch spot for local favorites such as the decadent Miss Piggie burger (made from ground bacon), or the even more decadent Luke Skyburger (on this one, the bacon’s deep fried!). For those with a craving that can’t be satisfied, the Monster Burger—weighing in with more than a pound of meat—might just do the trick.

Hit the Road!
At the Art Car Museums, cars do more than just get you from point A to point B. Step into this privately owned collection of wacky and wonderful vehicles and see what the car can be beyond mere transportation. Visitors can expect to see oddities such as a bathtub with wheels and a motor, or a dragster in the shape of a high-heeled shoe. The museum also showcases non-car art from artists who are traditionally neglected by major institutions.

See the View!
Take in breathtaking views of the Houston skyline from Eleanor Tinsley Park, a stunning city park with much to offer the active Houstonian. This park goes beyond the standard park offerings, with novelties such as the Buffalo Bayou art park, a temporary public arts exhibition, and an informal dog park where dog lovers and their four-legged friends gather to chat and play. For an afternoon of fun, hit up the Jim Mozola Memorial Disc Golf Course, or shred it up in the skate park.

Get Fit!
A good municipal golf course is rare, but Houston’s Memorial Park Golf Course delivers. This 600-acre facility offers not only 18 holes of golf, but also a lighted driving range, putting and chipping greens, and a thoroughly modern clubhouse. Take advantage of the course’s wide variety of events, such as competitive tournaments and free golf clinics.

The White Oak Bayou Trail runs through Memorial Heights, only steps away from the Memorial Hills apartment community. This trail is an excellent place for all sorts of exercise, ranging from a rigorous run to a leisurely after-dinner walk. Depending on the season, visitors can expect to see all manner of stunning plant life blooming up from the banks of the nearby bayou.

Memorial Heights is a thriving, lively community with much to offer, much like the Memorial Hills apartment community itself. Click here to learn more about living at Memorial Hills!
