Webster isn't just the place where the NASA Space Station is, but also where one can come across friendly faces and opportunities for advancement in the medical field, technology and engineering!

Crime is practically nonexistent here. Housing and rent may be a little on the pricey side, but still affordable compared to other areas of Houston. If anyone is looking for sugar daddies, good times, and a little bit of excitement, there's The Hop on Highway 3.

The Bay Area Park & Ride--an extension of Houston Metro to the outskirts of the city--doesn't operate on weekends, so if there's a need to travel to downtown Houston on a Saturday or Sunday, have a car or be prepared to request an Uber or Lyft.

Otherwise, being in Webster, TX is a peaceful, thoroughly enjoyable experience!

I've lived in webster my entire life, and I'm about to graduate high school and leave it behind. Thinking back theres a lot to do here, even if it involves some travel. Kemah Boardwalk is so much fun and I road my first roller coaster there. The best food is just around the corner like Taco Bell, Texas Roadhouse, and Szechuan. The Baybrook mall is right around the corner and I even work there, there's a ton of stores there for everyone to have a place to shop and spend money lol. Highly recommend visiting or even living here yourself!
I have been living in Webster, TX for about a year now. We moved here from the Virgin Islands months after hurricane Irma and Maria destroyed our islands. Since living in the Webster area, I truly enjoyed it. There is so much that I can do when home from college break. I'm close to the mall, movie theatre, several grocery stores, a variety of restaurants, and many other places that I and many others can enjoy and just have fun. There is not much that I would change other than having more public transportation. As of now there no public transportation in my area other than utilizing one of Houston’s many park and ride locations. More access to public transportation in my area would assist so many families especially if your family has only one vehicle within the household like mines do.
