Hi friend!

Oh my gosh! Guess who was named #2 by Niche.com as a "2019 Best [City] to Raise a Family in America"? Drumroll..

It is The Woodlands!!


They were given an overall niche grade of A+ broken down like this:

  • A+ Public Schools
  • A- Housing
  • A+ Good for Families
  • B+ Nightlife
  • A- Diversity
  • A+ Jobs
  • B+ Weather
  • B- Cost of Living
  • B+ Outdoor Activities (something must be wrong with their algorithm, lol)
  • B+ Health & Fitness (hummmm, lol)
  • B Commute (not sure what they are measuring this to, because The Woodlands employs 50,607 people)
