The woodlands is abundant with nature, shopping centers, entertainment, business structure and new state of the art medical center on 45. It's continuously growing,expanding and improving. Bring a native Houstonian and experienced living in different parts of Houston has brought me here and I'm very happy with the decision. Real Estate market has always been good for its residents along with a new HP center under way! Connecting 2 counties, 3 school districts, accessiabities to nature trails, lakes, golf courses, and countless recreational community activities. It's one of its kind.
Review The Woodlands
The Woodlands really is a wonderful place to live! I love that everything is surrounded by trees. I have to wake up early, so going outside on crisp mornings always gives me a sense of freshness. The people here are really friendly, and you can feel like a part of the community just by going on a walk. I also like the fact that we have Trader Joe's and HEB for fresh produce whenever we want, which is incredibly useful. Furthermore, The Woodlands Mall and Waterway are great places to hang out and have fun. All in all, I love The Woodlands
The Woodlands is an amazing area for family enjoyment/entertaining, dining, shopping and concert's. The schools are highly rated. There are miles of hiking, biking trails, dog parks, skate parks, golf courses, area swimming pools and playground parks through out the area for families to enjoy daily. Families even enjoy picnics, community event's held through out the year put on by The Woodland's township. People come from all around to enjoy diversity of restaurant's, they also stroll along the water way or enjoy a boat ride on the water way. You can have a fun filled date night as well, as they have pubs, 2 movie theaters, many concert's, several hotel's and bar's near by as well. Some people enjoy fishing or kayaking on Lake Woodland's. The Woodland has several communities for 55+, apartments, town homes, median homes all the way to custom homes in gated communities. The Woodland takes pride in all of these with many more amenities offered. The only negative is traffic congestion.
