I used to drive from the Heights because I loved Rice Village so much. But it has become more and more corporate, and in the newer section they have driven out almost all my favorite stores, painted the lovely red brick gray AND put in parking meters so you can't even run in for a few minutes without forking over... 更多
There is a variety of shops in the Rice Village area! It's easy to walk to from Rice University, and the store employees are very friendly. It's a high traffic area, but worth the bustle.
Kind of different. Pretty upscale shops with a few unique ones thrown in. A nice variety of eateries. Take your pick. Inside to outside seating.

We enjoyed walking around rice village shops. This is near Rice University. Lots of shopping and food choices are available, go down some of the side streets you will see Thai, Vietnamese and Indian restaurants as well.
The Impeccable Pig meets Gap meets Kendra Scott Jewelry meets the Gaelic Gael meets the Chocolate Bar meets Buffalo Wild Wings. Something for everyone - in a delightful square of shopping blocks.

Rice Village has some of my favorite Houston restaurants and shops. There is a Half-Price Books and a Chocolate Bar on University which are great for all. Restaurants include Torchy's Tacos, Black Walnut, Brown Bag Deli, and many more. The only downside is you now have to pay to park, which sucks. Parking is free on the streets, though.
The village is a popular shopping area offering a variety of retail options. Everything from Half-Price Books to MAC to cookies to Kendra Scott jewelry, plus my personal favorite eatery, Prego. Parking's difficult but worth the effort. Park once and just stroll the neighborhood. A fun outing for sure.
