Review Sugar Land
I moved to Sugar Land with my parents in 1972 - at that time it had 5,000 residents. It was a great place to grow up in. Since then my parents have continued to live here (45 years) and I have moved back with my family to live close by. Sugar Land has grown considerably (up to about 85,000 now) but the growth has been beautifully managed. The city is bustling but quite navigable. There is incredible diversity in the population bringing all types of opportunities for personal growth and cultural awareness. It is a very safe place to live and a location with a lot of conveniences - available shopping, entertainment and great parks. Commuting into Houston brings challenges, depending on your destination and times - but all major cities have traffic issues. Coming home to Sugar Land is always a great relief! The school district (Fort Bend ISD) served me well when I was a participant and continues its excellence to this day.
Sugar Land used to be considered a small town. We were a community built around the Imperial Sugar Factory. Even though it has turned into it's own little metropolis, you really don't need to travel to Houston for anything anymore, it still holds it's small town feel and charm! Shopping, dining, medical care can all be found in Sugar Land. The schools are exceptional and overall it is a safe place to live. Taxes are low and cost of living is lower than the national average. I've lived here my entire life and can not imagine living anywhere else.
I love Sugar Land! There's so much here and not to mention it is beautiful. We've got our own mall, town square, many restaurants, large neighborhoods. There's always something new to discover and great spots to hang out with friends. The stores and restaurants look high quality and it's one of the safest towns within Houston. I have lived there for 11 years, starting from when I was 11 and the place just felt like home ever since.
