Houston-Rice (not many) and Boulevard Oaks Area-the area I live in

Not many of Rice, more of the walk between Rice and up to my neck of the woods about 1 mile north:

Very nice area especially with the Oak trees. Except for the housing style it reminds me a lot of the Coral Gables & Coconut Grove areas in Miami.

One of my favorite areas of Houston. I especially liked spending time in the area in the winter months when visually it still looks like summer due to all of the greenery.

I like that area of Houston. Reminds me A LOT of where I grew up, minus the water. Definitely the best area of that metro, in my opinion. Can't beat the sculpted live oaks, the nice old homes, the sidewalks, the grid, the public transit, the medical center, Rice, Hermann Park, the zoo, and general upkeep and appearance. I'd take that area over Galleria/Post Oaks/River Oaks any day.

I think River Oaks is the ultimate in appearance (almost unreal looking) but definitely for the super rich and the famous. Doesn't have the character of Montrose or the Museum District.

Those are great photos, and welcome to Houston. But God I can see the effects of this historic drought and record breaking heat even in those photos. Houston's beautiful tree canopy is under serious threat. Even with that however, the Rice area and your neighborhood Chicago3rd seem to be holding it's own.
