The Neighborhoods of South Houston

Over 7 million people call Houston and Greater Houston home. Over 2 million people call "Houston" home. It is the fourth most populated city in the United States, trailing only New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. According to Forbes, Houston ranks first among U.S. cities where paychecks stretch the furthest. Houston is home to the second largest concentration of Fortune 1000 companies in the country, 49, behind New York, 72. Houston ranks first in total park acreage among U.S. cities with more than one million residents. I really could go on and on, but to sum it all up, Houston is the land of opportunity. Houston is the land of growth. But where to live?

The Neighborhoods of South Houston

Today I will be sharing with you the neighborhoods and suburbs of South Houston. These communities have something for everyone. From quaint suburban atmospheres to bustling town centers. Favorites of mine include those found in Fortbend County: Richmond, Rosenberg, and Sugar Land.

Alvin

Alvin—the hometown of baseball legend Nolan Ryan—is a community proud of its history and committed to preserving its heritage. The community embraces its past through historic structures, like the Alvin Depot, original neighborhoods, and a traditional downtown area. Alvin delivers value in transportation via two state highways, the BNSF and UP rail lines, and two airports. Alvin Community College and Alvin ISD provide value in education, too—Alvin ISD boasts an exemplary rating from the Texas Education Agency. The second-largest school district in Brazoria County covers 250 square miles and serves Alvin, Manvel, Iowa Colony, Liverpool, Amsterdam, and parts of Rosharon, Arcola, and Pearland.  

Missouri City

Missouri City’s location minutes from downtown, The Galleria, the Texas Medical Center, both major airports, and the Port of Houston keeps residents close to Houston and all it has to offer. The city council has adopted a strategic plan that focuses on continuing inclusive, beautiful, and safe community growth. Fort Bend ISD and Houston ISD serve students here.

Pearland

Pearland was recently named one of the fastest-growing cities in the Houston region and the fifth-safest city in Texas. A 20-minute drive to downtown Houston allows residents to enjoy short commutes and all the big city has to offer while taking advantage of the area’s lower-than-average cost of living. The 1.1-million-square-foot Pearland Town Center features more than 140 shops. Students attend schools in Pearland ISD and Alvin ISD.

Richmond

Richmond is located about 15 miles southwest of downtown Houston on the Brazos River. Anticipating a growing population, the city’s Richmond Trail Master Plan will create trails for recreation and commuting. Students attend Lamar Consolidated ISD, an award-winning district.

Rosenberg

Rosenberg was founded in the late 1800s, when the Gulf, Colorado, and Santa Fe railroads chose the area as a railway stop. Today, the city offers unique leisure activities, family friendly festivals and events, and a growing list of recreational activities that contribute to the area’s friendly, laid-back quality of life. Rosenberg is located 35 miles southwest of Houston in Fort Bend County. Lamar Consolidated ISD (lcisd.org) serves students here. 

Sugar Land

Sugar Land, located approximately 20 miles southwest of downtown Houston, is both one of the fastest-growing cities in Texas and one of the most economically strong suburbs of Houston. Master-planned communities featuring golf courses, country clubs, and lakes contribute to home values. The community offers exceptional schools, libraries, and civic organizations, and residents enjoy dining, shopping, and nightlife at Sugar Land Town Square. Sugar Land won the title of “Fittest City in Texas” four times in the state-run Texas Round-Up fi tness initiative. Sugar Land students attend schools in Fort Bend ISD.
