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...
Bellaire is in the heart of Houston and it is close to everything. I have lived here for over 15 years and it is very safe. It is cleaner than the rest of the city and there is a lot to do here in this small community. I love that there are parks, pools, and a recreational center for family activities. The police department is also amazing and they are so quick to respond. The elementary school was recently rebuilt and it looks very nice. Bellaire High School is also a wonderful school that is diverse and eccentric.
