What started out as an unassuming, master-planned bedroom community has exploded into one of the most popular towns in Texas – The Woodlands. This community has experienced amazing growth in recent years with the population up nearly 94 percent over the last 15 years. Apartments in The Woodlands are snapped up quickly – find yours today and become a part of this dynamic community.
The Woodlands is part of the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land metro area. The Woodlands was developed in 1974 by an oil tycoon who thought some residents of Houston might prefer a quieter, suburban location – a respite from the big city. The community was designed to include both large mansions and affordable housing, golf courses, malls, a conference center, and schools.
While it may have started out as a suburban retreat, The Woodlands attracted businesses along with those residents, and soon corporate campuses began popping up. Soon, Chevron Phillips, McKesson Corporation, Maersk Line, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, Baker Hughes, and more moved into the Woodlands. The Town Center contains a variety of shops and restaurants, and water taxis cruise along the water carrying visitors to the downtown area. Paved walking trails and plenty of green space make The Woodlands the ideal live-work-play community.
Once you’ve found the perfect apartment to rent in The Woodlands, be sure to catch a performance at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, one of the most-used amphitheaters in the world. This amphitheater holds about 16,500 people and hosts a wide variety of performances, ranging from the Houston Symphony to the Houston Grand Opera to Depeche Mode to Clint Black.
Other great locations to explore from your The Woodlands apartment include the Riva Row Boat House, a park with kayak rentals; the Koi Garden, built on two islands in The Waterway that are linked by pedestrian bridges; and Rob Fleming Park, home to the Rob Fleming Aquatic Center. The Woodlands also offers 205 miles of hiking and biking trails, spray parks, dog parks, BMX tracks, and more.
