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.
