Being born and raised in Sugar Land is a blessing. I am surrounded by many cultures, races and religions. The weather may be bi polar at times but there's no where else I'd rather be. Sugar Land is always improving both economically and socially and I am sure it will continue to for a long time to come. New neighborhoods and businesses are always being opened and built. In Sugar Land we have so much diversity and a killer food scene. Even though there are multiple cities around the world like NYC or LA known for its beauty and uniqueness , Sugar Land is no less. Sugar Land is one of the top cities to live in Texas and is named one of the safest cities in America. Sugar Land has it all! Amazing people, food, safety as well as a great education system.

I've only lived in Sugar Land for a few months but so far, it's great. I hated living inside of Houston. The traffic was terrible, I generally didn't feel very safe, and the school in my neighborhood worried me. In Sugar Land, I have none of these problems! The libraries are close, Town Centre is filled with shops and restaurants, it's very clean, and the schools seem great. I would actually love to buy a house in this area.

I have grown up in Sugar Land my entire life. As a child growing up, I never once felt unsafe or worried about the safety of my neighborhood. The schools that I attended were great in multiple different ways. The parents were always involved, the teachers were always making sure that the students were getting their work done and made sure that each student was being taught the way they needed to be in order to be successful. The neighbors that I have had growing up have always been friendly, and are always willing to lend a helping hand.
