Kingwood, specifically, will remind you more of something you'd see in Georgia or even Alabama, instead of Texas. The only difference is the flatness.
Awesome! Alabama ain't ugly! LOL!

I might be wrong, but I think Kingwood quite possibly has the tallest trees you'll see in the Houston area. I'm comparing them to The Woodlands, and I think they even have them beat.

The suburbs (and master-planned communities like Cinco Ranch) look planned and sterile. Go to 7:40 in this video and you can easily tell when you leave Houston and enter the SW Houston suburbs.

Some do and some don't. The Woodlands is the most attractive imo.
