Kingwood is a suburban community to the north-east of Houston. With the streets and buildings surrounded by trees, bayous, and golf courses, its nickname has become ‘the Livable Forest,’ although, ironically, Kingwood originated as a suburb for Houstonians working in the oil industry. For the most part, Kingwood is residential, but there is still plenty of commercial activity, and more and more businesses are springing up yearly.

Kingwood is a small town with two high schools. Although this small city has a close community feel, it also has many retail stores and eateries. Kingwood is the modern city-like spin on a country small-town environment. Living in Texas most cities, including ours, have a large amount of Texas Pride. As a sub-city of Houston, there is great availability for careers that are held downtown while being able to live around 30 minutes away by car. The elementary and middle schools are some of the best in Texas and are part of a ISD separate from Houston ISD.

Kingwood is part of Houston, which makes it a very hot and incredibly humid place to inhabit; you’ve been warned. That being said, it is also full of great restaurants and exciting attractions for people of all ages. The best time of year is from late November to early February. The weather is cool, but not cold, and there are fewer bugs.

Kingwood is a suburb northeast of Houston. It was built in the 70s for people working in the oil industry. Since then it has expanded and diversified, just as Houston has. Unfortunately, the suburb’s nickname, the livable forest, is becoming less accurate.
