Bellaire Reviews

Bellaire is such a great place to live. Everyone is super friendly and it is a very family-oriented neighborhood. The houses are really nice, and range from small and affordable to large and more on the expensive side. Each house is unique and do not all look the same as if they would in the suburbs. There are many good schools in the neighborhood such as Horn Elementary, Pin Oak middle school, Bellaire High school, Episcopal, etc. There are also tons of parks and places to walk your dogs if you have any. Bellaire is a very safe neighborhood with a great police department. I have lived in bellaire for 14 years and have always felt like I've lived in a safe neighborhood. If you're trying to find a place in Houston to live, definitely consider Bellaire!
Review Bellaire
Very nice neighborhood! I live walking distance from three parks and a pool, yet it feels closed off enough to feel like a small community. Wide bike lanes and active community involvement.
Bellaire is a great area to raise a family! Good neighborhoods, great restaurants, and lots of shopping within half an hour of driving.
