My husband and I are moving from Alabama to Houston with our 3 children (ages 6, 4, and 7 months). I am a stay-at-home, and my husband can choose where his office will be (so work commute is not an issue). We have narrowed down our search to Cinco Ranch and Sienna Plantation. Can anyone offer their opinion of the pros and cons of each of these? Also, is Sienna Plantation considered less desirable because it is in Missouri City? Thanks for the advice!

Eh... they're essentially the same. Pick the one with the best home for you, if commute isn't an issue.

Spend some time calculating how far you are from your errands, and other things that matter. For example, I live in Cinco SW and I am 10 minutes from Mason Rd. On Mason I have church, preschool, bank, dance classes, gymnastics, all the chain grocers, etc... Whatever your life activities, where are they? Are they close enough to either neighborhood?

Cinco Ranch has a better commute and better location, but Sienna Plantation is the better community. This is my opinion.

I see nothing negative about Cinco Ranch. I live there. I am sure Sienna Plan. is very nice too. I am so happy in our new home in Cinco Ranch. SO pretty, lots to do, nice people. We walk to the lake with our little dog. Our son is grown, but so much for the kids there too.

The only thing Sienna Plantation has over Cinco Ranch is diversity.

Missouri City is very nice, so I don't think living there would be a problem. Still, I say Cinco Ranch is a lot better than Sienna Plantation. It's larger, more amenities, and is located on the western side of Houston's metro, which is easily the most connected side. I'd say Katy ISD is better than Fort Bend ISD. Don't think the high schools that Sienna Plantation is zoned to can compare to Cinco Ranch or Seven Lakes High School. This is my opinion though.

I agree with this. The only reason why I say Sienna Plantation is the better community is because I like the layout more and the diversity. I know SP just built a new high school though.

Both are great places.

I just moved to SP and checked out both CR and SP before deciding. I think both communities are great but its the magical feel and look of SP (reminds me of a storybook town) that I loved most. The people are amazingly nice and the schools here are great. We have a ton of SP community activities. In fact last fourth of July they have a fireworks event that blew me away. It has live music, food, etc. I was soo glad this way my community. They are also doing alot of building around SP and it is very close to Sugar Land which has tons of restaurants, shopping, etc. You should take a look at both communities but I wouldn't be shocked if you decided on SP.

I live in Cinco Ranch, but m highly frustrated with their "modification" approval process which is slow when you want to improve the appearance and efficiency of you home right away. Modifications that are obvious improvements should be allowed without having to go through a month long process to get approval, especially when you want to improve the efficiency of your home right away. The HOA is the most negative thing about living in CR. I also have come to think it is too big and has lost the neighborly type feel of most suburbs.
