I think the Kingwood area is great! There are many companies that are growing and causing a very increasing liking within the economy because the people enjoy shopping, getting groceries, dining out, entertainment, art, activities, sport, etc. Also, it is clean, safe, and a constantly growing environment. The people are very nice and friendly and there is a lot of nice shopping centers near and around the area. Everything is convenient and worth the little bit of traffic on business hours. Kingwood is the perfect area for you because the neighborhoods are private and the community is friendly! Don't wait, move now!

Kingwood is a great community that is clean, friendly, and peaceful. The schools prepare students for a college education and the teachers are all willing to do whatever they can to make sure the students understand and learn the material being taught. The community as a whole is a safe environment for everyone and there is constant support for all school activities and sports. This is a incredible place to live where everyone knows everyone. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!
The Kingwood Area is a friendly environment that has nurtured me for about 15 years. When I moved to Kingwood, TX I felt welcomed the neighbors were very friendly. In Kingwood we are recognized for our public schools and the 98% graduation rate at Kingwood High School. The neighborhoods in Kingwood are very safe. The police take good care of patrolling the neighborhoods therefore no wrongdoing would take place. Since most of my years have been spent in the Kingwood Area I would not want to live anywhere else because it brings a since of home to me. No matter what I can always call Kingwood my home and recommend people moving from out of state that Kingwood is a great place to settle down.
