Washington Ave Memorial Park Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Washington Ave./Memorial Park area of Houston, known for its bars, restaurants and nightclubs, is a wonderful place to visit during the daytime, too. Memorial Park and Washington Avenue will keep you busy all day and entertained all night.
During the day, you can take a stroll or bike ride through Memorial Park. This park offers miles of biking and walking trails. When you’re in Memorial Park, you wouldn’t think that you were only a few minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown Houston. It also offers a nature center on the southwest side of the park, and on the north side is a beautiful, 18-hole golf course. A little further south, just outside the park, is the River Oaks Country Club golf course. Filled with lush trees and wildlife, Memorial Park is a place in Houston where you can go and feel miles away from the big city.
Southeast of Washington Ave./Memorial Park is the Beer Can House. Yes, this is a house that has been strategically decorated entirely with flattened beer cans. This unconventional decorating scheme began in 1968, when John Milkovisch, a retired upholsterer, decided to make a few minor patch repairs to his house using beer cans. Over time, this small project has turned into a cult favorite for many Houstonians to drive by and gawk at.
Washington Avenue is lined with dining and entertainment options. You’ll find every type of eatery here, from small, quaint Mexican restaurants to trendy, upscale Sushi bars. When you’re finished eating, head either east or west for a place to spend the rest of the evening. This area offers bars and night clubs, ranging from the simple sports bar to the young and hip dance club. When you want good food, good drinks, and an overall fun time, then head to Washington Avenue.
