The Westchase District is a great area for any family type. Beautiful parks around the area, plenty of shipping from Memorial City mall to Town and Country Village. There is also a fun, upscale night life in CityCentre. Come for a visit! You won't regret it!
Easy access to all the necessary things in life! Easy to navigate. Friendly neighborhoods, great schools. Lots of restaurants and bars.
