Champions is nice but would be a shorter drive to Cypress than it would be to Kingwood which is not what you are looking for. The other drawback is, depending on the neighborhood, the drive to get to a freeway may take you 10 to 15 minutes.

Checkout CrimeReports to get crime information for an area over the past 30 days. I checked out Fall Creek. Essentially no crime but there was some crime in some of the less expensive neighborhoods across the beltway.

Eagle Springs and Summerwood are the other newer, master planned communities in the Humble area. The commute from either of these would probably be about the same to Kingwood (depending on where in Kingwood your wife will be working) but would be longer to Cypress.

If you go on www.har.com (best consumer real estate site in the nation - has won awards every year) and punch in area 13 - you can see for yourself.
Thanks, Cheryjohns. I also agree with you agreeing with me.LOL!!! You are right about www.har.com. That is an excellent website. Also, the Champions area does have some great homes. Jack, I hope you use these sights we have posted.

The Woodlands, hands down. It's right between Cypress and Kingwood. Quality of life is great there, because it's a really well designed development, with stores, entertainment, etc.

Edit: Just noticed the fastest route between The Woodlands and Kingwood is going all the way down to the beltway. 51 minutes... pretty long and longer with traffic. According to Google, you could also take the country roads which takes 52 minutes.
