Only Kingwood and Clear Lake are "Houston" in that list.

^^Picky, picky. lol

There's not "a" good area. There are quite a few, depends on what you're looking for.

The Houston metro area is huge. There are many "good" areas. To give you a better idea, it would be good if you could say where you will be working.

When I move to Houston I will be a semi-retire , so job location is not an importance factor.

Many would probably agree that The Woodlands and Kingwood are the best out of that list; however, I find that the extremely low minority population count in these areas is disappointing. Almost discouraging.

They don't represent Houston's diversity well at all.

And why wouldn't you? Both Kingwood and The Woodlands are very white.

Are you trying to steer this to a race-based discussion?

As for 'best' out of that list, I would absolutely disagree that those are the best out of that list. I'm sure you've done no scientific polling on the issue to make that kind of claim. If you go by people voting with their feet, those would be some of the least populated areas on that list and it's not because they are exclusive, Kingwood has some of the lowest cost per sq. ft of any of these.
