Dickinson seems to be slowly moving in the direction from small time, blue-collar 'burb to typical middle-class suburbia. It's up to city officials to determine how they're going to handle growth and the spill over from League City to the north.

You can say the same for Alvin, too.

If passionately opinionated = ''riled up'' then count me in! My blood pressure is still 115/75!

I have a friend who lives in the Greenway apartments, but I've only seen pictures of River Oaks. Houses seemed similar to the $2M+ homes in Clear Lake. By that I mean excessive, but even bigger and fancier.

I live in League City and really like it. We've been here for 7 years now. I have also lived in Dickinson and Santa Fe. In the 20 years I've lived in this area, I believe League City is the better place to be (out of the three). If you have children or plan on it, then the schools here in Clear Creek ISD are also superior. Since your wife is a nurse, there is also UTMB in Galveston.

Don't forget the Clear Lake Medical Center. 10 minutes away from some parts of League City.

to tstone: I've lived in Dickinson 2 yrs now and honestly, it really depends. The town looks like it used to be a haven for problems in certain neighborhoods but has worked hard to improve, and actually has some nicer neighborhoods on the side closer to the Gulf freeway that are cheaper and w/out m.u.d. taxes than League City. I got a really nice 3000+sq ft home near the h.s. which use to be an executive's home, next to the Weeks' (electrical company) on 3/4 acre for only $145K! You'd never get that in League city.
Also, the schools (esp. the h.s.) have gotten better over the years I'm told and my son's gotten alot of help at the h.s. which I can't complain about. It's LaMarque you need to stay away from and parts of Tx City. That's the crime zone around here these days. The Dickinson police are always present
and the drug problem (mostly around Deats rd at Hwy 3 btw) is under control. I lived off Oak near Gill Road, and basically that whole area over there used to be NASA execs back in the day, so the homes are really nice and you can get into one over in Colonial Estates (for ex) for about $150K or less.
