Some okay stores, but we were expecting more. Pretty much like a standard, not very large, mall. There were some boutiques, but these were mostly for younger, slimmer women.

Yes, there are chain stores. But there are cool independent ones as well. Nothing better on a nice Houston fall day but to park and walk around and see the Rice U and museum area later. Right off 59. Shopping is shopping but this is a nice area to visit. About 5 by 4 blocks to walk. Check out the... More

I was disappointed in the Rice Village Shops. I was led to believe they were trendy and unique. That's not what we found. The main area was all the same stores you find in any mall (Ann Taylor, Claire's, etc.). Some of the outer stores were more boutique-like, but those were upscale clothes. Nothing unique or trendy to me.

The Rice Village has lots of shops from small boutiques to stores like Banana Republic, Gap, Urban Outfitters, etc. What I like most of all are all the great places to eat around the Village. Parking is tight on the street and in the parking lots, but there is a garage you can park in and get your ticket validated... More

Parking tends to be tight and limited but if you like boutique shopping and nice food, it's worth the effort of finding a space. There is a great variety of places to shop including a nice Native American jewelry store, a great rustic furniture store, a few hair salons and an incredible watch shop that handles high end time pieces...

Rice Village is close to Rice University and in a very beautiful area of Houston. There is a selection of stores, restaurants and services. I can only recommend to visit when you are in the area.

This is one of Houston’s best places for having a good time. Its 16 blocks offer an eclectic mix of more than 360 shops – all located only a half-mile (0.8 km) or so northwest of several METRO light rail stops and as far west of the Rice University campus. It’s a good area for walking, bad for parking. One... More
