Default Best places to live in the Houston, TX area, w/teenagers?

We are moving to the Houston, TX area, working downtown. Please provide us with areas/neighborhoods near Houston that may best fit our life-style: two children, middle and high school, gifted and strong AP/IB program, a must. Activities important to us: strong adult and junior tennis community, girls and boys lacrosse program, rec. soccer, biking & jogging trails, and dog friendly.

You might want to look into Kingwood...very nice quiet area. I am not sure if they have boys and girls lacrosse but teen sports are a major part of the community. Schools are good & there are paths for walking/ jogging and biking throught the community. Housing typically ranges from the mid (for a fixer) 100's to over a million.

You could also consider The Woodlands which is a bit further out and a bit more pricey but there is more upscale shopping in that area.

Cinco seems to be a good area for teens, also.

The best place to live in Houston will be where your family is happiest. What area of town will you work in -- getting a close commute would be good and give you more time with your family. We have good neighborhoods on every side of town that offer the amenities and schools you are looking for. Where is your employer and what are things that are important for you to be near in terms of a home? Schools, sports, parks - those can be found in all the good areas on each side of town which are the things you mentioned - so proximity to work might be the next key factor for people to use to advise you of actual neighborhoods you might be interested in.
