Rice Village

Taking shape in 1937 with the construction of Rice Food Market, and situated next to Rice University and the Texas Medical Center, Rice Village is one of Houston's most affluent yet diverse neighborhoods, attracting a hodgepodge of upper class professionals, college students, and the Bohemian/artsy sorts who inevitably land near major university centers. Perhaps due to the diversity of its populace and its eclectic demographic, more than 450 retailers reside in this shopping center near the Museum District. One of the oldest and most beloved shopping centers in Houston, Rice Village features such standards as the Banana Republic and Urban Outfitters, as well as the Main Street Theater, where shoppers can take in a live performance, and Ovations, with an ongoing schedule of live music.

Address: University Blvd., Houston, TX 77005
