The Woodlands ranks as the #1 “Best City to Live” and #1 “Best City to Raise a Family” in Texas and #2 for both in America in 2020 by Niche.

“Naturally, we are very pleased that The Woodlands has been recognized as one of the top communities in the nation,” said Jim Carman, President – Central Region for The Howard Hughes Corporation®. “The community has an unprecedented 28% of open/green space, alongside first-class business and entertainment amenities. making the community the perfect live, work and discover lifestyle for you and your business to relocate.”

The Niche study factors in quality of life, cost of living, commute times, and school quality in developing the criteria.

Perhaps it’s the 28,000 forested acres. Or could it be the short distance to work with nearly 2,200 employers in the community? Maybe it’s the 148 parks or the 220 miles of nature trails. Could it be the 200+ restaurants or upscale shopping experiences? Three highly regarded school districts for our children’s education? Regardless of the live, work or discover reasoning, we are proud of The Woodlands!
