While the luxury amenities of Reverie at River Hollow apartments make it easy to fill your free time at home, we know it's also fun to go outside our community and do something different. If you are looking for things to do in Uptown Houston, you'll find a few ideas here.
Watch a Movie at Rooftop Cinema Club
With the Rooftop Cinema Club Uptown reopening and tickets now on sale, we will add it first on the list of fun things to do. Located on the rooftop of BLVD Place at 1700 Post Oak Blvd., minutes from Reverie apartments, this popular open-air rooftop movie venue, which temporarily closed last year, provides a cinematic experience under the stars with food, drinks, and amazing views. If you’re a movie fan and appreciate being outdoors, you will love it!
Shopping at The Galleria & Uptown Park
If you recently relocated to Houston and haven't had a chance to check out The Galleria, make plans to do so. An international shopping and tourist destination, The Galleria houses hundreds of upscale stores, about 60 eateries ranging from fine dining to casual favorites, a children's play area that would get any kid excited, a full-sized ice rink, and more. You could easily spend days exploring all The Galleria's offerings.
While The Galleria is only 1.5 miles from our apartments, the trendy Uptown Park is even closer. Strolling through the high-end, open-air shopping center you'll find distinctive boutiques, eateries, wine bars and more. You can also catch events including trunk shows and live music at Uptown Park.
Experience the Waterwall
Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park in Uptown, one of the city's most visited attractions, features a mesmerizing multi-story sculptural fountain you must see, if you haven't already. The serene sound of the water falling is a calming experience, especially at times when the park is not crowded, and the Waterwall makes a beautiful background for photos. While you're not allowed to get in the water, if you stand close enough you can feel the mist and could even get soaked.
Visit Memorial Park
For outdoor recreation, the nearby Memorial Park, the state's largest urban park, offers a variety of activities ranging from walking, running, hiking, and biking to playing tennis, volleyball, and croquet. There's an 18-hole golf course, considered one of the country's best municipal courses, and an indoor fitness center with swimming pool. If you want to go for a picnic, you'll find tables throughout the park. Before visiting, view helpful information about things to do at Memorial Park, including any updates and closures, provided by the Memorial Park Conservancy.
