Also to the south are three prominent golf courses: the Houston Country Club, Memorial Park Golf Course, and River Oaks Country Club.
A short jaunt down I-610 brings residents to Northwest Shopping Center. Slightly farther south, near the intersection of Post Oak Boulevard and Westheimer Road, is the Galleria, Houston’s most prominent retail center and the fourth largest shopping mall in the country. In addition to an indoor skating rink, the Galleria offers at least 375 fine dining establishments and retail stores, including many top designers like Tiffany & Co., Gucci, Cartier, and Louis Vuitton. For Spring Branch East residents that want to avoid the Galleria’s tourist crowd, the Great Uptown area also offers plenty of other dining and shopping options.
