For all the praise and raving about The Woodlands over the past decades, it seems that the trends lately (home selling, change in demographics, decline in overall income of residents) is making The Woodlands less desirable, and it is moving in a direction that's not positive. I've also spoken to several long-time residents, and they admitted that the place is changing slowly, for the worse.

Not trying to be negative, just pointing out that looking at the "present" is only part of the equation. The future and trends are very important too, and a "proper" aspect to consider (wink wink)

The Woodlands continues to grow, and not all of it is positive. In balance, still a great suburb - - and more and more, a great live/work combo.

I always think of Spring/The Woodlands/Conroe as the same general area. I feel the same way about Humble/Atascocita/Kingwood. And - I think of those two areas as the greater Houston area. We were in Las Vegas about a year ago and met a couple who said they were from Houston and my husband said, "oh, we used to live in Houston, what part are you from?" and they said "The Woodlands" ha ha!

As the crow flies, The Woodlands is approximately 1.25 miles from River Plantation. Unless now the OP thinks Harper's Landing is not part of The Woodlands "proper". Obviously it is the OP who has a problem, because the OP seems to think that The Woodlands is some sort of exclusive club not just anybody can join. FYI - parts of TW are MUCH less desirable that parts of RP. Both very nice overall, but important to note that the people who chose to live in RP made a conscious decision to live there and not TW. Honestly it is people like the OP, someone who doesn't even live in TW yet, who give TW a reputation of being snobby. Nobody I've met from TW seems snobby in real life.

Regardless Woodlands, Sugarland, Conroe, Humble, etc all these places are in Texas, which doesn't say much. All of you are arguing about nothing.

That is what I would say if I were them, most people know where Houston is, but how many Las Vegas natives know where The Woodlands is?? They didn't know you were from Houston, if they did I'm sure theyd have said the Woodlands. I tell people from out of state that I live in Seattle. I dont.
