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!
Kingwood is a safe, beautiful town. Awesome place to raise a family, and close to Houston. Kingwood has numerous diverse religious organizations, active town square, and beautiful parks. Kingwood was the very first master planned community. They call it "the bubble" it has everything you need in a suburb community, schools both public and private, restaurants, grocery stores, and it's own movie theater. There are numerous different sports teams and leagues. Each smaller subdivision has it's own pool/park and it has miles and miles of concrete trails throughout the different subdivisions connecting them together. Kingwood is a great place to live and raise a family.
