Clear Lake is by far one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Houston, Texas. Here, you find people of all races and ethnicities from all stages of life. Immigrants come here for the vast job opportunities that are available, and their children mingle with the residents, bringing culture to the neighborhood. Since it is a suburb, the public schools here, namely those belonging to the Clear Creek Independent School District, far exceed the expectations of many parents. CCISD is one of the top public school districts in the state and nation, and it can be found here in Clear Lake.

Clear Lake is an amazing place to live. You have all kinds of stuff within a couple miles! You have endless types of ethnic restaurants, you have one of the best malls in Houston just a few miles down, it’s incredibly safe, it’s a very clean and respectful area, overall a wonderful place to live.
Clear Lake City has all of the amenities of a larger city, but is small & inviting, plus we have a large lake. We have the new Baybrook mall expansion that mimics the Houston Galleria. We have U of H Clear Lake Campus. Family friendly neighborhoods with an Excellent/Outstanding rated school district. One downfall is the freeway construction and traffic to get here, but once you're here, you have no reason to leave!
