Greater Third Ward

One of Houston's Six Historic Wards
One of Houston's Six Historic Wards, this is a neighborhood full of culture and hosts both The University of Houston and Texas Southern University. Popular spots include This Is It, The Original Frenchy's, and The Doshi House. It's in the perfect location as it's very close to downtown and an assortment of other neighborhoods so commuting anywhere shouldn't be a problem.

FYI, it was once home to Beyoncé and is still home to the Emancipation Park, which is a 10-acre park commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. If you're looking to live in an area full of history that's close to both major universities, this is the spot for you.
