“A place called “The Woodlands”

Called “America’s Hometown,” since it opened in 1974, The Woodlands, a 28,000-acre master-planned real estate community, has all the elements of a complete city, with full commercial, industrial and residential real estate development supported by a highly acclaimed school district. Its diversified employment base supports its residential community. Just 27 miles north of downtown and 16 miles from Houston Intercontinental Airport, with accessibility to Interstate 45 and the Hardy Toll Road, The Woodlands provides commuters with direct access to the Houston metropolis.

Its driving philosophy was and is to preserve the natural forest while carving out places to live, work, play and learn. The Woodlands consists of multiple villages and districts including: Creekside, East Shore, Town Center/The Waterway, Sterling Ridge, Carlton Woods, Alden Bridge, Cochran’s Crossing, Indian Springs, College Park, Panther Creek and Grogan’s Mill. Each is like its own small town, complete with shopping centers, community organizations, schools, recreational facilities, and healthcare. Within the villages are individual neighborhoods, each with its own charm and identity.

The Village of College Park gives The Woodlands the added distinction of being a “college town” and is centered around the University Center and Lone Star College. Lone Star College not only offers Associate’s and Bachelor’s Degrees but allows residents to continue their education by partnering with other Universities to provide opportunities for Masters, PhDs and additional certifications.

The Woodlands business districts include Town Center, The Waterway and Hughes Landing. These business districts are similar to a downtown and are host to more than 500 businesses as well as shops including Market Street and The Woodlands Mall, a variety of restaurants and entertainment.
In addition, The Woodlands offers community pools, forested parks, the 200-acre Lake Woodlands, three country clubs with seven championship and Signature golf courses, Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, hospitals, hotels, a four-star resort and the fitness advantage of over 100 miles of hike and bike trails.

Here you find not just a place to live but a place to call home!
