Many Reasons to Love Living in Katy, TX
There are numerous reasons why numerous folks love to live in Katy, TX. Katy is made up of old or historic Katy which is a old city dating back to the 1890’s and a very large unincorporated geographic area made up of numerous neighborhoods. As a generality Katy and the surrounding areas are approximately 25-35 miles west of Downtown Houston depending on where exactly you live.
Katy is close enough to Houston to allow residents the ability to enjoy all the things there are to do in a large and spread out major US City. George Bush airport is about 45 miles from our home in Katy and depending on the time of day a very doable drive. There is also Hobby airport and several other local airports to choose from. Leaving the Houston area is usually not a difficult task. Plus driving to San Antonio and or Austin is not difficult and both of these cities are wonderful to visit.
There are so many other things Houston has to offer such great restaurants, professional sports, wonderful medical care facilities, entertainment of any type, shopping, museums, employment opportunities, affordable housing ( compared to other major cities housing is a bargain here) etc. I think everyone gets the picture.
Katy and the surrounding areas has something to offer virtually everyone and covers all age brackets and range of interests. There are sports activities for folks of all ages. Katy is interesting as it has essentially all the attributes Houston has other than professional sports but we do have the Katy Tigers High School Football team! If you have interests in stamp collecting, coin collecting, sports cars, you name it there is a group that exists in the Katy area. There are numerous restaurants, movie theaters, entertainment facilities, medical facilities plus hospitals, Doctors, a water park, shopping strip malls and Katy Mills Mall, and this list just goes on and on. There are way too many to list.
One of the key reasons why folks want to move to Katy or relocate to the Katy area are the schools. Katy ISD is a highly rated and acclimated school district with 7 High Schools, 14 Jr, High Schools, 39 Elementary and around 70,000 students and a School staff of about 9,000. Obviously Katy ISD has grown into a huge school district and it continues to grow every year.
The Katy and surrounding areas have numerous neighborhoods to choose from with many being classified as Master Planned Communities. These neighborhoods extend north of Interstate I-10 and south of I-10 and encompass a very large geographical area. The vast majority of these neighborhoods have a large array of amenities including depending on the neighborhood swimming pools, tennis courts, dog parks, walking, biking hiking trails, parks, playgrounds, splash pads, putting greens, etc. The list goes on and on depending on the specific neighborhood and area. Katy is a family and pet friendly area made up of a very diverse population base.
Home prices have gone up in the last several years but are still less expensive than most areas in Houston and outside Houston suc as the Woodlands.
One last item to mention is that there are several routes one can take when commuting from Katy to other areas around Houston and inside the city limits. Houston without question had bad traffic but at least by living in Katy there are alternatives while in some areas that is not the case.
I will stop here as I could write numerous additional lines. If you want to know more about this great area contact me and I will arrange to take you and your family on a tour and explain why folks love to live here.
