Houston is the fourth largest city in the U.S. The Katy/ Energy Corridor is west of Houston along I-10 heading towards San Antonio. You will find a mix of existing and beautiful new communities popping up everywhere as the area is growing. There are lovely parks, shopping and restaurants, and lots of small town feel meets new state of the art schools and athletics.
South and Southwest of Houston has popular areas such as Sugar Land, Pearland, and Missouri City. Here you can find golf course communities, loft living, and new developments popping up as well. Lots of local restaurants and shops dot HWY 59, and an old sugar factory still sits in it’s name sake Sugar Land, as well as a minor league baseball team, called the Skeeters.
Southeast of Houston is near the Gulf Coast, so it is dotted with communities on or by water, such as Kemah, Clear Lake, and League City. Many of these communities have inlets or lakes/waterways with homes, golf courses and restaurants enjoying water views. Galveston is about an hour south of Houston, and offers plenty of beaches, beautiful hotels, and lots of places to eat and shop.
Northeast of Houston are communities such as Kingwood, Humble, and Atascocita. Beautiful Lake Houston is a focal point up that way, with plenty of boating, fishing, and enjoyment.
Lake Conroe, North of The Woodlands is another wonderful area to not only live on, but boat, jet ski, fish, or enjoy dinner at your favorite local restaurant.
And last but not least is the famed inner loop area with great areas such as the revitalized Heights, historic River Oaks, well known Bellaire, West U or Rice University area. Here, real estate is prime and hard to come by. You can find anything from a small early century bungalow to a sprawling multi million dollar compound and everything in between.
Houston has plenty of areas to look at, live in and enjoy. You just have to find the right one for you.
