Friendswood, Texas has once again been recognized nationally as one of America’s best places to live. The new issue of Money magazine cites America’s top 100 best small towns, which were judged by readers in terms of a solid job base, affordable housing, great schools, and area attractions.

Friendswood, home of the new master-planned West Ranch community, was ranked No. 32 on the magazine‚Äôs list of the top 100 Best Small Towns. The magazine cites, ‚ÄúFriendswood was founded by Quakers and remains dry, but that doesn't mean its residents don't know how to have fun. The community hosts frequent parades, summer concerts in Stevenson Park, and an opening ceremony for the baseball season. Residents can travel north to Houston, south to the Galveston beaches, or east to the Kemah boardwalk; all are less than an hour away.‚ÄĚ

I didn't know Friendswood was dry because I've bought beer in that area several times, but based on this article they must be talking about a very small part of the area. Check this out:

liquor store - Google Maps

Actually I think this is the corporate city limits. The rest of ''Friendswood'' covers a very broad area but is actually unincorporated (and quite diverse).

But we looked for a house inside the corporate limits back in 2005... and it IS nice. However I think almost everyone who lives there is related.

The town voted just recently to allow alcohol sales. The unincorporated areas of Friendswood were never dry, just the incorporated area.
