Pearland is not near the water and you would have to drive to get to some. There are no beaches (w/sand) except at Galveston or along the coast, though there are nice parks where you can wade and fish in LaPorte, Shoracres, Seabrook, etc. "Port" areas are confined to the Ship Channel, Bayport, Clear Lake channel (pleasure vessels), and the intercoastal in Galveston.

Depends on the time of day. I guess in rush hour it could take quite a while; 288 gets backed up. But I drive it often in the middle of the day and on weekends, and it takes me 15 -20 minutes (med center area to Silverlake area).

Thanks. That is what I was telling my wife, but since I actually have never been to that part of Houston, she wanted to make sure that those areas were actually considered part of the Port. Thanks again for confirming what I thought.

The drive to Katy from downtown is a major drag out I-10. For that reason alone, I would not pick Katy if it were me. Katy itself is very nice - where you live really depends on where you commute to and what you desire or don't care about in your commute.

Pearland seems to be the hottest area in town. Thats what I gather.

Katy and Sugar Land are both VERY crowded, both with traffic and undisciplined kids. When you go shopping or to a restaurant, there are too many spoiled, screaming, undisciplined kids around. Katy schools have bullying and drug problems just like any other school. Too many people are moving to both Katy and Sugar Land because there are rumors of great schools. Do parents really know what goes on at their child's school during the day when the parents aren't around? The schools tell the kids to keep it quiet when drugs are found in the lockers. They "address" bullying issues, but nothing is really ever done about it.

WoW... Now let me google this and see if I can decypher / translate your post. That is quite some intense message you got there mate... No intent to insult but after a post like this, you either don't have any kids or if you do, you already lost the train as far as parenthood goes.... How can you make so many inaccurate and idiotic statements in very few words?

texas... I was just wondering the same thing. This is the third one tonight I've noticed. Posts should be deleted after 3-4 months of no activity.. IMO.
