“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
This eclectic neighborhood offers five-star restaurants and local dives, ethnic eateries and gay bars, coffee shops and tattoo parlors. Enjoy the surrealist collection at The Menil, then cross the broad, breezy park to find serenity at the Rothko Chapel. Check out local art galleries, antique shops and offbeat boutiques along the Westheimer Curve. This sleepy historic area dating back to 1911 became Houston's gay culture hub and boomed with arty urban renewal in the 1990s. Along tree-lined streets, picturesque bungalows and modern townhouses are now interspersed with bed & breakfast establishments.
