Cinco Ranch

Cinco Ranch is a master-planned community in Katy, Texas, that is so large it effectively serves as a self-contained town. Covering five square miles with a population of almost 17,000, Cinco Ranch has 11 pools, complete with splash pads, super slides, and lap swimming. There are also four Cinco Ranch swim teams, serving ages 6 to 18. You’ll also find sports courts for tennis, pickleball, volleyball, and basketball, as well as a cricket pitch, plus plenty of parks and playgrounds. The many smaller subdivisions within Cinco Ranch are connected by a network of greenbelt trails, allowing residents to walk, bike, or roller skate between the park, school, and home without ever having to get into a car. There’s also LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch, a dine-shop-play destination that has a Trader Joe’s, a twice-monthly farmers market, as well plenty of great restaurants and upscale shopping.

Living in Greater Houston

Like all of Texas, Greater Houston’s history is the story of oil, with suburban towns developed by and for gas and oil executives, with Houston’s Energy Corridor remaining a major employer today. The suburbs of Houston stretch in all directions, from Kingwood, technically inside the city limits, all the way up to and beyond The Woodlands, whose growth and prominence has earned it its own identity, separate from H-Town. These suburbs are young metropolises — towns that grew out of farmland and forest in the past 50 years, with houses, office parks, newly created lakes, and golf courses emerging from rural lands where only cows and feral pigs once roamed. As Houston’s economy has diversified and as the region has created more new jobs, Houston residents have looked farther and farther out for more space to settle. Greater Houston is booming and there’s no better place to call home.
