League City Reviews

I was born and raised in League City, TX for twenty one years! It is a small surburban city located in Galveston county. It gives residents the choice of a twenty minute commute to either the city of Houston or the beaches in Galveston! League city has around 80,000 residents and it has everything you could possibly want nearby.
Restaurants, fast food, movies, bowling, trails and many more activities! The neighborhoods offer a wide variety of homes with any kind of budget. The crime rate is very low, so you never have to worry about your family's safety. Everyone is friendly and the school district is absolutely phenomenal! The community is very active in highschool/ college sports!
League city offers absolutely everything you would want in a place to call home. It is the classic suburban area, but it has so many activities for all age groups. If my husband weren't in the Army, I may have never left League City!

League City is booming suburb. It's located approximately thirty minutes south of the bustling Houston, and about thirty minutes north of the relaxing Galveston. League City is quickly becoming a medical hubbub, with plenty of things to do at night time and day time for people of all ages, with or without children. This city is apart of Clear Creek Independent School District, which ensures you a top of the line education. Housing is beautiful and plentiful, just like the people and their diversity inside League City. I was fortunate to grow up in League City. I moved away for a few years, but I came back again! There is no place that is more safe, or has more to do than League City, Texas.
I love that League City offers some of the same things as a big city, yet still has that small town feel. I would, however, like to see more family based activities available outside and Farmers Markets. We could implement more walking and biking trails, pet parks and anything that has water!
