Spring, TX Is a Picture-Perfect Small Town

Spring, Texas is a thriving suburb of Houston. Located just 24 miles from downtown Houston, Spring is small enough and far enough away to retain that small town feel while still being convenient to the all Houston has to offer. As of 2010, Spring had a population of just over 54,000 occupying 18,050 housing units.

Oddly enough, many of Spring’s residents first discovered this wonderful community as tourists. Decades ago there was a rash of development occurring in Spring. It was decided that the older homes in the center of town would be converted to specialty shops and restaurants. This area is now known as Old Spring and has over 150 boutique shops and restaurants. People come from across the state and country to visit Spring, and inevitably, some choose to make Spring their permanent home. Old Town Spring is a powerful economic force in the town and drives the local retail and hospitality industries.

Old Spring is not just a tourist attraction; it is the center of the town. Much of town life revolves around events hosted at Old Spring, and man residents enjoy just walking through the area even If there is no event scheduled that day. The big events each year are the local Christmas Celebration where the whole of Old Spring is transformed into a winter wonder land, the Art and Wine Festival where wineries and artists from across Texas descend on the town to sell their wares, and the Texas Crawfish and Music festival where over 50,000 pounds of crawfish are consumed each year.

While the beauty of the surrounding landscape and the quaintness of the town definitely draw people in, it’s the affordability and variety of the housing that encourages them to stay. Spring has some of the most affordable housing in the Houston area. In Spring, there are still homes available for around $100,000. That is unheard of around Houston, and don’t think that there aren’t luxury homes in the area. There are more than a few luxury estates available in the area.

Spring is one of the friendliest towns you will ever find, and there is a place in Spring for everyone.
