Bellaire is located in southwest Harris County off of 610. Its proximity to major Houston sports arenas, family friendly activities, cultural events, and the Medical Center puts Bellaire in a perfect position on the map.

Bellaire has many great neighborhoods to consider, such as Marilyn Estates, Braeburn Country Club Estates, Tanglewood, Braesmont, and many more! is a great place to start to find out more about these neighborhoods and to begin searching for a house. 

Why Moms Love it

Bellaire is a favorite of moms for many reasons. To see why, look at the activities and fun things around Bellaire for kids and families. Bellaire and Meyerland are in the heart of the Jewish community, with Houston’s Jewish Community Center, Congregation Beth Israel, Congregation Beth Yeshurun, and several smaller synagogues in the area. A few of our contributors live and love there for many reasons. 

Local Family Favorites :: {Playgrounds, sports, activities, parks}

At HMB, we love family-friendly activities. If it’s hot outside {because, it’s HOUSTON}, we recommend these indoor play places and these awesome splash padsWe also love taking care of ourselves. We have compiled a list of mommy-favorite fitness classes around town that can help you with self care.

Childcare and Schools

We know finding great child care and schools is a daunting task.  There are hundreds of great day care options in this area, but finding the right one for your family takes work. For grades K-12, the area is zoned to HISD and parents should research carefully how to navigate the HISD schools. There are also many charter schools across Houston, like YES Prep and Harmony Schools.

Perfect Date Night/Staycation

 Mommy breaks like date nights, an occasional brunch, and staycations are an important part of self care. 

A few Bellaire restaurants are on our list of the 30 Most Family Friendly Houston Patios and our list of Family Friendly Restaurants around Houston. We even know the most kid friendly breweries in this area. Interested in bringing your own alcohol and saving a bit of money? Check out our list of BYOB restaurants around town! To top your evening off, check out one of the Top Ten Ice Cream Shops in Houston!

We feel comfortable “peacing-out” and leaving our kiddos in the trustworthy hands of Best Buds Babysitting, knowing they will be taken care of {especially after we pick up one of the best pizzas in the area for everyone to enjoy}. They are happy. We are happy. Everyone wins!

You are also deciding who your children will play with and who you might become friends with. So while many people search for their dream house, we believe you should look for your dream home.
