"Great place to raise a family"
Some friends of my family recently moved to this street from Illinois. We had lived next to them a long time ago and they invited us over to see their new house, have dinner, etc.... Getting there was a little bit of a hassle, as I-45 never seems to not have traffic. But, I guess that what happens when you're area is one of the fastest growing parts of Texas. Just off of a fairly major road, the neighborhood is quaint, with small-to-large homes varying in prices. The neighbors were friendly, waving at us as we passed despite not knowing us. The interesting thing about this street is that unlike many major neighborhoods that have houses on both sides of the street, this one departs from that and on the south side there are no houses-- just a walking path and trees. In the short time we were there, we saw kids playing on that side of the street the entire time, and it looked to be without parental supervision. Clear Lake is close to many great Houston hotspots. NASA is a short drive south. If you have visiting family, this is always something they want to do. It's almost a guarantee. You are close to I-45, so getting to downtown Houston is a breeze, and a short trip south will take you to Galveston, once the largest city in the state of Texas. There are also great shopping and dining experiences to be had, as well as entertainment. This neighborhood has truly got it all. But, once my family and I left from our friends, we got stuck in traffic again on I-45.
