What It's Known For
Living in The Woodlands
If you’ve ever thought about exchanging the concrete jungle for nature trails, lakeside hangs, live music, and sophisticated living, The Woodlands may be for you! Located about 30 miles north of Downtown Houston, the town has been called the region’s best kept secret.
You can’t talk about The Woodlands without talking about the woods. One of the most notable aspects of the cozy, master-planned community is the densely wooded areas that give it a totally unique feel. For those looking to be one with nature, it’s a dream. When combined with Lake Woodlands, the Waterway, and George Mitchell Nature Preserve, it’s clear to see that enjoying some of Texas’ best urban outdoor living (summer heat included) is a way of life here. To dive right in, check out the great eats and bars in Waterway Square, rent a kayak and hit the water at Riva Row Boat House, make your way through over 160 miles of hike and bike trails, or catch a summer concert at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.
Want to head inside? Retail is a safe bet here. Southern Living calls The Woodlands “One of America’s Best Shopping Destinations”, probably due to the eleven million square feet of shopping in the area. Check out Market Street, The Woodlands Mall, or any of the countless local boutiques to see it for yourself. Or stop by the Game Preserve, where a day pass gets you unlimited access to over six thousand square feet of classic games and machines that will take you way back!
If you’re ready to grab a bite, The Woodlands knows no shortage of options from classic favs to new hotspots. In the Market Street shopping center, Sweet Paris serves up signature crêpes while Popbar offers totally unique popsicles. Or check out unique eats like Fielding’s Wood Grill, Chick’n’Cone in Waterway Square, or The Brooklyn Cafe.
Finding an Apartment in The Woodlands
Of course, everyone is different, but we find that most residents of The Woodlands consider it a place of its own. With countless major employers and it’s location a bit up I-45, renters may find it less suitable for commuting to Houston and more of a perfect place to enjoy a more suburban lifestyle.
The area boasts tons of new construction and many updated units for prices generally higher than you would find in similar areas like Katy, but much lower than you would find inside the loop. But with 1 bedroom units starting at $1.1k, great-value options are abundant!
