Moving to The Woodlands
Probably the single, most popular suburban area in and around Houston is The Woodlands. The Woodlands is a master planned series of smaller communities in Montgomery County, just north of Houston on Interstate 45. The Woodlands combines the sort of small town feel with all of the amenities of big city life that families and single people alike crave. Whether you are relocating due to a divorce or to accommodate a need in your family, The Woodlands is a great place to begin your search for a new home if southeast Texas interests you.
For starters, The Woodlands is not just a bedroom community where everyone lives here but travels elsewhere to work or attend school. Many large companies, small firms and other employers call The Woodlands home. Finance jobs, energy sector jobs, health care and a range of other employment areas mean that The Woodlands is a great place to live and work. A high standard of living combines well with a high degree of nearby employment opportunities.
The Cynthia Woods-Mitchell Pavilion is a well-known concert destination that hosts shows from a broad range of musical acts each year. This outdoor theater is ideal for temperate southeast Texas fall, winter and even spring evenings. When summer comes around why not take advantage of the parks system that The Woodlands has to offer? Village of Alden Bridge, Village of College Park, and Town Center Parks are just a handful of the nine township parks available to you and your family in The Woodlands.
While The Woodlands boasts a tremendous number of single-family homes, do not let concerns over the availability of other home types dissuade you from considering a move here. Condominiums, townhomes, patio homes and water-front properties are all available in this community. Given its proximity to George H.W. Bush Intercontinental Airport (25 minutes), downtown Houston (thirty minutes) and all points north of Houston, The Woodlands provides the best of what southeast Texas has to offer.
