We are debating on these two areas. Can't decide which one would be the better move. I would love to hear from those that live in these two areas.

Anyone live in Spring Trails? What is your commute to downtown and are there any good childcare centers nearby? What about crime rates and the schools?

We've also considered the Cypress 249 area but we are terrified of the commute to downtown.

As well you should be.

Anything to the NW is going to be a long,painful haul. Due north isn't a cake walk either. I'd look at Kingwood as well, it's really not a bad drive.

Default Spring Trails commute would use the Hardy...

We close this week on a house in Imperial Lakes, which is very close to Spring Trails, so I know a little about the area. As far as commute, you drive on Riley Fuzzel for about a mile until you pick up the Hardy (or visa versa). Even the Hardy is crowded at peak times, but nothing like the expressways in the NW. Spring Trails is in Conroe ISD. We have grown children so I know nothing about childcare facilities, BUT I have seen at least two in the area (one where Hardy and Riley Fuzzel connect and one at Rayford Rd and Aldine Westfield).

Our son recently bought a house in Atascocita Shores, just on the border with Kingwood. While he's in the Humble ISD, he's zoned to Atascocita HS. There are some good buys on homes in that area too. It's my opinion, after driving to his house and back a number of times, that the commute is more difficult. While 59 isn't a problem, getting TO 59 can be. You either come across 1960 (OMG), or go down Lakeshore Drive and pick up Beltway 8 that's being extended just South of Summerwood.
