City Guide

Cinco Ranch
The YMCA in Cinco Ranch was once named after Enron executive Ken Lay, before he was later disgraced and his name was removed from the facility. Despite this possibly dubious connection to one of the biggest scandals of the Houston area, Cinco Ranch is a master-planned community that's actually a highly desirable place to live.

Despite this possibly dubious connection to one of the biggest scandals of the Houston area, Cinco Ranch is a master-planned community that's actually a highly desirable place to live.

Cinco Ranch was a real working ranch before Texas even existed as a republic. The original owners raised cattle and grew rice there. But today it's a master-planned community on the outskirts of Katy, a large suburb of Houston, which has attracted thousands. By the time the plans for the community are done, Cinco Ranch will have more than 14,000 homes - enough for a small city in itself in just over 8,000 acres.

What to Do in Cinco Ranch

Cinco Ranch is like a subdivision on steroids. Like most master-planned communities, it's a beautiful and clean place to live. Living in Cinco Ranch really does live up to the very definition of a "community," including shared evening activities for residents, like playing Bunco.

Most of all, Cinco Ranch is a place where you need a car. Although the community itself has bike trails and lots of places to enjoy on foot, the majority of Cinco Ranch residents need wheels to get around. The Houston metropolitan area is big and sprawling, and public transportation options are limited. But when you have such a beautiful, well-planned place to live, spending a little more time in the car to get home is a trade-off that thousands of residents are willing to make.
