The Houston Texas area has SO many incredible communities and neighborhoods, choosing the best Houston suburbs in 2022 is harder than you might think.
Typically, when you think “suburb” you think family, as this is where most families end up settling as they grow. With that in mind, the factors I took into consideration were schools, outdoor activities, shopping and dining, and overall “vibe” or feel of these suburbs. *Note: I also compiled a list of my picks for the best Mater Planned Communities in the North Houston area, in case you wanted to check that out as well! So without further ado…
Best North Houston Suburbs in 2022
The suburbs listed below are not ranked in any particular order, but are my top picks for the best Houston Suburbs for families in 2022.
1. The Woodlands
This community topped Niche.com’s list of BEST place to live in the entire country in 2021, and it’s small wonder why. The canopy of trees
Conroe Texas is located about 40 minuted from Downtown Houston, and perfectly situated between the shopping and dining of The Woodlands and the laid back lake like of Lake Conroe. It is forecasted to be the number one top boomtown in Texas in 2022, and the top 3 boomtown nationwide!
3. Cinco Ranch
Cinco Ranch is in Fort Bend County and has a dense suburban feel. Most residents own their homes, and most families tend to have moderate political views. The public schools in Cinco Ranch are highly rated
4. Sugar Land
Besides having the sweetest name in all of Texas, this suburb of Houston is also ranked the #5 suburb in all of Texas! It has a newer feel to the streets and neighborhoods, plenty of parks and hike and bike trails.
5. Nassau Bay
Nassau Bay is right on the Gulf and offers a truly laid back coastal vibe. There are plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, parks, and of course the beach! Many young professionals and families live in Nassau Bay and the public schools are rated great.
