I heard that The Woodlands is becoming a popular vacation spot for tourists. Not to mention, the tourists tend to stay and make a living here because the city is extraordinarily beautiful, with nature trails and parks, a diverse culture and so much to do close to home, from shopping, theatres, and clubs to arcades, water parks and even sky diving! For the same reason, The Woodlands it’s vastly growing, with all the new bridges, homes and buildings and continuous amplifying construction being the proof of that. Neighborhoods are peaceful and one can find a home from a wide price range. Plus, job opportunities are never lacking.

The Golf in and around the Woodlands is one of the best in Texas if not the country. Compliment that with both first class hotels, restaurants and music venues such as Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion and it's a great getaway destination from most anywhere! The people we have met in the area are very inviting and hospitable and we are envious that they live in such a beautiful and harmonic location.
On the surface, it's great! Clean, safe. Lots of parks, pools, places to shop and eat...and not much else. Barely any culture (museums, performing arts not done by schools) or 'eclectic' places (family-owned shops, etc.). Not uncommon to see teenagers walking around with nothing to do--besides the Mall or the movies, there's not much else to do!

It's called "the Bubble" for a reason: nouveau riche McMansions, lots of Republicans. Donald Trump stopped here on his campaign. Little diversity, and too many cookie-cutter houses.
