re: Best areas to live in?????? - 9/26/2007
You live in one of the best places in America to live. I moved here from Raleigh, and it took years for me to be comfortable with this city. The crime is really bad here and the traffic incredible. When I first came here, I was struck by the barrage of billboards (not permitted where you live) and commercial ticky tacky that is the thread that ties this city together. I was fortunate enough to live north of the main city, in The Woodlands, which is much preferred over Houston proper. Even better, was a move to Conroe, a more rural town on the northern edge of The Woodlands. The people here are great and you are in driving distance of the big city attractions (35 miles straight down I-45) There is also a beautiful 29 mile lake in west Conroe, Lake Conroe, bordering Montgomery. Another wonderful spot to live with one of the highest rated golf courses in the Houston area (Walden). Good luck in your move.
Conroe, TXBest of both worlds
With a population of about 45,000 people, Conroe has the amenities that you would want (shopping, medical services, education and entertainment) in a small town atmosphere. There is a wonderful fairgrounds with a county rodeo once a year, and so many nice aspects of the city, including a state of the art city pool with a covered lap swimming area. You are in driving distance of Houston for the really major performances, and close to The Woodlands for an upscale shopping/dining experience. I can't say enough nice things about this town.
