What locals are saying

Not a sport: Tomball is named after its founder, Thomas Ball. (Tom Ball, get it?) This little town was originally called Peck, but it was renamed when Congressman Thomas Henry Ball basically did a whole bunch of awesome stuff in developing the Port of Houston.

Tomball is part of the metropolitan Houston area, about 35 miles northwest of the city of Houston

Not a sport: Tomball is named after its founder, Thomas Ball. (Tom Ball, get it?) This little town was originally called Peck, but it was renamed when Congressman Thomas Henry Ball basically did a whole bunch of awesome stuff in developing the Port of Houston.

Tomball is part of the metropolitan Houston area, about 35 miles northwest of the city of Houston. Most people think of dry deserts and tumbleweeds when they think about Texas, but they must have never seen Tomball! The northern suburbs of Houston, including Tomball, are near the piney woods region of east Texas and are lush and green, with lots of trees everywhere. Houston is one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S., but because it's Texas, there's a lot of sprawl. A lot of people here work in the city of Houston but would rather live in a nice, quiet suburb -- like Tomball.

Moving to Tomball

Tomball is growing like crazy! The population doubled between the 1990 Census and the 2010 Census. It's still a small town, relatively speaking -- only 10,964 people lived here as of 2010. But those people are packed into just 11.9 square miles, which gives you some idea of how many people are flocking to this popular area. Once they extended Highway 249 to Tomball and beyond, modern settlers fleeing the city had a clear route to a great new place to live. This is a hot place to be, at least by standards of the suburbs.

If you want to find a one-bedroom apartment in Tomball, you should have no trouble at all. You can find apartment complexes right in the middle of town, along Tomball Parkway or Baker Drive. But you don't have to worry that being close to town means you'll be kept awake all night. Even though you have all the stores and restaurants you need access to, this little town shuts down for the night pretty early. Ahh, peace and quiet!

Just as with any other location, you need the usual qualifications before you move here. Make sure you have a current job that pays at around three times the monthly rent, an accurate credit report and previous landlords that can vouch for the fact that you're not going to destroy the place.

Neighborhoods

Tomball only has a few neighborhoods, but they all offer their own distinct amenities.

Boudreaux Estates: This community of newer homes has easy access to Highway 249/Tomball Pkwy, making commuting a lot more convenient.

Saddlebrook Ranch: This neighborhood in the far northeast corner of Tomball is located by beautiful Burroughs Park.

Rosewood Hill: Located on the far western edge of Tomball, this neighborhood features lots of new homes.

Life in Tomball

Texas is known for a few things: warm weather, lots of jobs and cheap housing, and all of these are certainly true here. But one thing it's definitely not known for is having a ton of public transportation options. If you want to live in Tomball, you need to be prepared to drive and drive a lot, especially if you work in the city of Houston. Hour-long commutes are not unheard of here, but the positive trade-off is that you get to live in one of the prettiest and greenest parts of Texas.

You can have fun on your weekends here, too, at one of the many fun festivals in the area. Maybe you'd like The Tomball Honky Tonk Music Festival or Bugs, Brew and Barbecue. Pick your own berries at the Matt Family Orchard or visit the wineries along the Bluebonnet Wine Trail.

Escape from the big city to a simpler, quieter way of life in Tomball!
