What are some other cities in the USA that resemble The Woodland in Texas?

In terms of amenities, closeness to a large metro, sterility, safety, etc

Not nearly as large as The Woodlands and with not nearly the corporate/ commercial presence, but Peachtree City, a southwestern suburb of Atlanta in Georgia's Fayette County, would fit the bill of a suburban, low crime, high performing schooled planned community. The famous icon of Peachtree City, Georgia is all their golf cart paths that connect the city's many "villages" (neighborhoods) with shopping centers, and the city's municipal and library complex. Peachtree City is also known as the "Delta" suburb, since it is fairly close to the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport and has many airline employees among their citizenry.

Lots of suburbs in DFW fit this bill.

I live in Seattle and I am considering moving to The Woodlands. It's on my top 10 list of places to move to right now.

The mainline doesn't fit well, as they are old money cities that developed around commuter rail. The Woodlands is an upper middle class, new money, master planned exurb. Irvine, CA and Plano, TX are the cities that come to mind for me, though Irvine is more upscale. Santa Clarita, CA may be a closer comparison, but it isn't just one developer.
