The Spring area is quite a nice environment to grow up in. I moved here when I was 6 and at first glance, it just seemed very ordinary, but I think that is what really makes it stand out. It just happens to be a well populated, safe, diverse, and overall very calm area. Its nothing like the packed city nightlife with glamorous restaurants and hotels, or the country side and its isolation, but just a common middle ground that you can call home. I am extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to grow up here!

I absolutely love it here! There is so much to do and the area is very family oriented. Not too far from the city and very close to The Woodlands Mall and Water Way. Spring is also very affordable, my boyfriend and I have a luxury apartment that doesn't break the bank! There is also many job opportunities. I definitely recommend moving here.
I've lived here for a month, and Spring is beautiful. The area seems to be developing pretty quickly. The people here are incredibly friendly. Everything I need is close by and easily accessible. I also love visiting Old Town Spring! Not many towns have such rich historical beauty still standing!
