I am amazed by the wealth of knowledge on this forum! We are the following:

married family with 3 kids very active in sports/music/schooling
both adults into health and fitness and sharing active/outdoor living with 3 kids
completing doctorate degrees in PT and have potential employer with skilled nursing/assisted living sites in the Houston market but also in the San Antonio belt
Got to stop through Austin on our way back to FL last summer and liked the marketing and what area has to offer BUT not going to town/sporting events on weekend types
will need top schools and quick commute access to our home to wrap up our busy nights with kids
live in a planned community now in FL and love what thye have to offer re: safety, sports, clubs, friendly like minded neighbors
somewhat concerned on weather since if too hot can't enjoy the weekends and outdoors
probably biased but is there a "bad" houston influence in the woodlands

I would really appreciate some guidance on many of my questions and concerns you may not I did not ask a whole lo on San Antonio and Austin but your feedback is welcome!

Thanks to all for your hard work on these forums!

Default "bad" as in anything bad about any of the places

told you I might be biased so just wrote in "bad" as in crime, traffic, vandalism etc etc. I also wrote my main concern is for my kids so I wanted feedback on safety etc. I am also suffering from this flu and running a fever so I may not have been thinkin straight so I apologize if I offended

Well, its not the city so you don't have murders everyday. So seldomly do "bad crimes" occur up there due to the city being near by. They poison their spouses and their kids blow up luxury cars all on there own, without Houston's influence. (Jokingly telling you these things have happened up there). No place is immune to "bad."

Default THANKS - comment noted

After posting my questions I found that my employer has places in tomball, conroe and huntsville. Are there Woodlands-type places in these areas? What is best community in Woodlands to have quick access to these cities?

You'll want to look in the back end of the Woodlands where the newer areas are. There is quick access to the areas you mentioned going out the back way. You will be going that way and everyone else will be going the opposite direction to the I45. I would never move to the back of the Woodlands if my commute included the I45. Potentially half your commute could be IN the Woodlands if that was the case.

LOL EA--We live in Sonoma County, about 40 miles No of San Francisco and Oakland, depending on the highway you take. As most of you know, Oakland does not have the *best* of reputations....a few years ago, could not help but come up with the conclusion...If the Oakland Raiders lose, they set their stuff on fire, if the Oakland Raiders win, well, they set their stuff on fire...
Go Raiders!.
I even read today on chron.com, that one neighborhood doctor, who discovered another doctor coming from his estranged wife's home in Bentwater, short story shot the *friend* in Bentwater, and consequently
himself in The Woodlands....
like EA says, no place is immune..stuff happens...just more of it in Oakland

The Woodlands is lovely in terms of family envrionment, community activities, lots of arts and culture if you look for it and plenty of sports and sporting activities.
There are homes in just about every price range.
While the people are kind and friendly, it can be very isolating if you have just moved here and don't have the opportunity to get out and get involved.
Like anywhere, life is what you make it but lots of people move the The Woodlands and never leave - they just upgrade and downsize in the same area but different neighborhoods.
Good luck.
