Looking to live somewhere with abundant green space, cool events, and excellent shopping, dining and entertaining options? If you answered yes, then look no further than North Houston. A prime location just minutes from The Woodlands, Conroe and Magnolia areas, three of our communities — AudubonHarper’s Preserve and Venetian Pines — call it home. If you’re looking to make the move to North Houston, read on to discover our top three reasons why you’ll love living in the area.

It’s Home to The Woodlands

The Woodlands’ 28,000 tree-filled acres are one of the area’s most defining features, but that isn’t the only thing that sets it apart. Whether it’s visiting the array of charming shops at the Woodlands Mall, finding a moment of tranquility while kayaking along the Woodlands Waterway, braving heights at Texas Treeventures or rocking out at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, there’s no shortage of things for the whole family to do. Close to some of Texas’ most highly rated schools too, there’s no question why this sought-after area is named the best city to live in America.

It’s Perfect for Nature Lovers

Nature lovers will feel at home in Conroe, which is home to beautiful lakes, forests, trails and outdoor recreation opportunities. The 21,000-acre Lake Conroe is open to water-skiing, jet skiing, fishing and pleasure boating. Nearby W. Goodrich Jones State Forest is where you’ll find bird watchers; while campers can explore Huntsville State Park. Conroe is also home to some of the state’s most beautiful parks and trails, including Sam Houston National Forest and the 96-mile Lone Star Hiking Trail.

There’s Always Something Going On

No matter what type of event tickles your fancy, North Houston’s got something for everyone. The Texas Renaissance Festival in Magnolia brings the sixteenth century to life and is one of the nation’s largest, opening in the fall and running for eight weekends. Then there’s the Conroe Cajun Catfish Festival, a popular three-day music, food and entertainment event held in historical downtown Conroe.
