Bellaire is a decently connected area with some excellent schools near Houston. In Bellaire, there are amazing schools like Condit Elem. and Challenge Early College HS.

As with all places, the roads could use some work, but overall, Bellaire is a great place to live, work, and educate! It's nearness to Houston makes is easy to work in the city, while still living in a relatively calm suburban area.

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!
There are many Vietnamese and Chinese restaurants. I love the food over there and the price is not expensive. There are many famous coffeehouses, milk tea houses, cakes, noodles there such as Kong Fu, 85 Degree, Zero Degree, Tofu Village, Pho, Bun. I am Vietnamese, so that is perfect for me to live in Houston. Weather is warm like Viet Nam and it is very convenient to but any Vietnamese food. Just a work- Awesome...
