River Oaks Travel Guide

River Oaks

Houston's moneyed set has long called the tony River Oaks neighborhood home. As you stroll (or drive) down River Oaks Boulevard, you'll be able to see just how they live; be sure to turn left or right on Inwood to check out some the gorgeous mansions clustered around River Oaks Country Club. The area is a must-see during the holidays, when fantastic light displays go up. This leafy enclave, just minutes from downtown, is bordered by Montrose on the east and Uptown on the west.
