"Great place to raise a family."

Kingwood Texas is a great place to raise a family. I moved there when I was thirteen and lived there until I was nineteen. Coming from a small town, the thing that attracted my family to Kingwood is the fact that no major road runs through it. Unlike other parts of Houston where you might have to get on an interstate or highway, you can travel all around Kingwood without getting on either. To the west of Kingwood is Highway 59 and if you ever visit you may never find yourself using it because everything you need is located in Kingwood. One thing that stands out about Kingwood is the greenbelts. The greenbelts are sidewalks that run though Kingwood and the woods that surround it. You can get anywhere in Kingwood by using the greenbelts if you know your way. At any time you will find children with their parents riding bikes or walking through the beautiful surrounding on the greenbelts. Kingwood is divided into to “villages”. Each village has its own parks and pool. During the hot summer the pool is free to use to village residents and is popular location for teens. Kingwood is also known for their great schools. I attended Kingwood High School and the teachers are second to none. Kingwood High school offers a host of classes that you could not find at other schools. I remember the top ten percent of my graduating class going to schools such at the Naval Academy, Yale, Duke and other top schools. If you are ever in Kingwood for the fourth of July, you must head to town centre. The roads around town centre are closed the entire day of the fourth and local bands play. You day is then finished with fireworks once the sun goes down. Kingwood is also home to many different churches so regardless you religious affiliation you can find something for your family. Kingwood is truly a great place to raise a family.
