Energy and diversity typify the world-class city of Houston, Texas. Innovation and imagination attract an optimistic population that supports the city’s robust economy. As the fifth largest metropolitan area in the country, the compact downtown area includes the Houston Convention Center, the Texas Museum of Natural History, and the University of Texas at Houston. Citizens of Houston are invited to share in the role of improving government. Transparency is facilitated by the innovative Open Data program that encourages cooperative relationships between Houston government and its citizens.
Clear Lake is an affluent southeast Harris county waterfront region, that is a master-planned segment of Greater Houston’s Bay Area. The aerospace industry, recreation, and tourism support the city’s growing economy. It’s not only home to the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, but Clear Lake also has one of the largest concentrations of recreational boats and marinas in the nation.
League City, the third largest boating anchorage in the United Staes, is also Galveston County’s largest city. Rich historical tradition can be experienced in local attractions like the 1898 schoolhouse at West Bay Common School Children’s Museum, and the Butler Longhorn Museum. Over 100,000 Texans call this vibrant city “home,” and the culture complements family values and proactive community growth.
Less than half an hour south of Houston is Pearland, one of the safest and fastest-growing cities in Texas. Pearland’s 1893 name was inspired by the abundance of pear trees. Over eighty percent of the city is residential so it boasts a population that surpasses 150,000. The city’s cost of living is below the national average, and it’s close to Houston’s world-class cultural amenities, professional sports, and family attractions.
In the northwest corner of Galveston County is a city that had its beginnings as an 1895 Quaker colony. With a sparse suburban feel, the city still revolves around family, schools, and church. The Quakers, who are also called Friends, established farms that later became the idyllic setting for new Friendswood subdivisions. Within fifty miles, residents can experience Gulf Coast recreation and attractions.
Boating, biking, hiking, and fishing—the small town of Seabrook has it all! Crime rate is low, schools are ranked high, and household income is way above the Texas state average. Shopping, dining, and entertainment enliven the Harris County coastal community, while a 30-mile northwest drive brings you into the cultural destination of Houston.The 15,000 Seabrook residents experience the best of both worlds.
