Conroe has a country atmosphere, but there are lots of places to go shopping. There are a couple breweries and a winery here too! It's also very close to the Woodlands Mall and a little further from Houston, but you can still drive there for the nightlife and other entertainment. We are also close to Huntsville. Housing is more affordable here, and we are close to several college campuses.

Conroe is a small town located on the outskirts of Houston, Texas. I have lived here practically my entire life! When my family and I first moved here in 2002, Conroe was more of a quiet, folksy town. Since then, it has grown so much. I love Conroe because there is a nice stasis of city and country vibes. It is not short of scenery. There are several weekends spent relaxing and fishing on our towns beautiful lake. Not to mention, if you are wanting to see some other cool attractions, you can visit the wonderful city of Houston anytime because it is only 45 minutes away! Conroe has room for improvement in the area of job opportunities. Although this is a great place to live, work here is limited. Most people have too commute a few minutes to surrounding cities for decent work. Overall if you are looking for a placatory place to live, Conroe is the place to be!
This review is coming from a long term resident; all in all Conroe is safe and I've lived in different parts of the country from the Midwest and East Coast. That being said there are some shady areas east of Interstate 45 around highway 105 (East Davis St.), It isn't a high crime area like certain parts of Houston but it does have its sketchy areas. The area around seventh street and tall timbers (Dugan area) mainly and a few other areas (Medley Quarters). Overall you will be safe and not really have to worry about getting robbed etc. There have been murders, robberies, drug bust, car thefts, etc. here so just like any other area you just have to stay on your P's & Q's but that's anywhere that you live.
