We are halfway through Summer and all of the beautiful bougainvillea is in bloom right now. I was heading over to a friend’s house the other night and stopped dead in my tracks when I saw these beautiful flowers. They were so vibrant and bright, I literally pulled the car over and had to get a few shots with them. Finding little flashes of delight around Houston is a favorite pastime. Whether it be a delicious food truck or simply taking a stroll down the streets of the Historic Heights area, I’m on a mission to find the most beautiful places in the city.
In the past I’ve highlighted several of my favorite little spots like North Boulevard and the Heights Library to name a few. I’ve also created a hashtag for all things Houston that you can search on social media as #houstonheelclicks. It’s an easy way to find some of my favorite places, restaurants and just little snaps of the city.
If you are looking for a nice afternoon in that part of the city, trying grabbing a glass of fresh lemonade at Onion Creek. You can also visit Juiceland for some delish fresh squeezed juices next door. It’s a lovely neighborhood to walk around and B-cycle has bikes you can rent over on White Oak. Also, if you prefer coffee or loose-leaf tea check out EQ Heights. They are located in a converted house and have a lovely patio you can sit on at dusk or into the evening.
