"Kingwood, Houston"

Kingwood is one of Houston’s must inviting neighborhoods to visit and to live in. This lush community has approximately 14,000 acres. Kingwood is one of the Master Planned Communities in this area. It is situated in northeast Houston. There are 25 distinct communities in this neighborhood location. Many of the communities in the Kingwood area are referred to as villages.

This area has long been one to host area events. Its proximity to many of the city’s major highways makes it a popular location. Kingwood has access to the Eastex Freeway.

"Clinton Park, Houston"

Clinton Park is a neighborhood nestled into east Houston. It is situated outside of the 610 Loop, which is one of the city’s major roadways. The history of this location is one of predominately African American residents. It is very near one of the area’s major tourist attractions, which is the Port of Houston. This attraction displays the path of international trade in Houston. There is a lot of historic relevance to the Clinton Park area. This locale is a part of the Houston Independent School District. The community center on Mississippi Drive is a staple in this neighborhood. Innis Center and the Skate Park are often visited by residents of the area. This is certainly one of the dated portions of the city. It is not as inviting as many of the other portions of Houston. You will find a number of apartment complexes in this portion of the city. Galena Park is another of the old offerings in this neighborhood. Tennis centers are found in Clinton Park and provide athletic outlets for the community. This area is most popular for its proximity to other Houston locations. Interstate 10 and State Highway 59 provide access to downtown Houston and other areas. Many residents in this area tend to visit the greater Houston area for shopping and entertainment.

"A Business Man's City"

This city is great for those who are career-oriented. The city offers a lot of fine dining, good medical care, and lots of fine art exhibits. The weather, polution, and traffic of the city make it less attractive for families.

"Quiet street, near EVERYTHING"

My sister and her family lives here. Other than the fact it is located extreme North, it is a great place to live if you work nearby. There is an elementary (Greenwood Forest Elementary), middle (Wunderlich Intermediate School), and high school (Klein Forest High School) all within walking distance. The street borders a beautiful residential neighborhood. There is no shortage of shopping, restaurants, drugstores, grocery, video stores--you name it, it can be found on FM 1960. It is near Beltway 8, Bush Intercontinental Airport, 249 Parkway, and I-45. I personally prefer to live within the 610 loop, but for those who don't mind being farther removed, I would definitely recommend it!
