This years home tour is guaranteed to be top notch. With some unbelievable homes open for tour, spectators will be in awe of the craftsmanship and detail. Saturday and Sunday, April 14-15 from noon to six, there will be six homes and gardens on tour. Five historic homes, and one newly constructed home will be featured, focusing on their unique character and architecture of the homes and highlighting the Heights neighborhood in general.
Tickets can be purchased at the Heights Fire Station on 107 W 12th Street and Comerica Bank on 414 W 19th Street, as well as each home. Enjoy a shuttle ride or consider alternate transportation by way of your bike. Tickets are $20 instead of $25, and what a time of year to be riding in Houston. The spring flowers in bloom and the weather is going to be perfect. A special route has been mapped out just for bicyclers and there will be bike racks with a “bike valet” at every stop. Take your time and stroll through each home, knowing your bike will be safe outside.
Then I recommend taking a stroll down 19th Street for some lunch and shopping. Merchants in the historic shopping area are very supportive of their neighborhoods and community events. You can’t go wrong with your restaurant of choice, no matter what you have the taste for. Plan to spend the entire afternoon in awe. Houston Heights neighborhood is one of Houston’s oldest but most desired neighborhoods. For more information on the homes on tour, as well as ticket information, click here.]>
