The Woodlands is a master-planned community located in North Houston.  Look at listings in the woodlands homes for sale map search. The community boasts upscale shopping centers, nightlife venues, a water park, hotels, BMX bike trails, golf courses and the largest outdoor performance venue in the Houston area. The Woodlands was founded in 1974 and is an appealing area of Houston for Veterans to take advantage of their VA home loan.

Located in Montgomery County (and a small area in Harris County), The Woodlands runs along I-45 just 30 minutes north of downtown Houston. The community spans roughly 43.27 miles bordered by I-45, FM 2978, FM 1488 and HWY 242. The Woodlands is divided into “villages” that contain smaller neighborhoods. The original village is the Village of Grogan’s Mill, which is located in close proximity to Town Center.

There are myriad ways for Veteran homeowners to spend a paycheck in The Woodlands. The two main shopping areas are The Woodlands Mall and Market Street. Other spots include the Grogan’s Mill Village and Portofino shopping centers.

The Woodlands Mall is an indoor shopping space anchored by Dillard’s, Macy’s, JCPenney, Sears and Forever 21. A 1.4-mile waterway (complete with water taxi) and a digital shopping experience courtesy of NearbyNow are just a couple of things that place the mall light-years ahead of the nearby competition.

Just beyond The Woodlands Mall sits the Market Street shopping center. This open-air mall houses both upscale and moderately-priced boutiques including Langford Market, The Madison Boutique, SOHO, Michael Kors and J. Crew. In addition to meeting multiple clothing and accessory needs, Market Street packs quite a punch in the dining arena as well.

Veterans purchasing homes in the Woodlands have over 20 dining options in the Market Street shopping center alone, creating an extensive list of each Woodlands-area restaurant is a bit unreasonable. However, there are a few spots that cannot go unmentioned. P.F. Chang’s China Bistro (1201 Lake Woodlands Drive) is a dining staple amongst both city and suburban folks alike. But the chain’s little sister Pei Wei (19075 I-45 in Shenandoah) is a lesser-known eatery that offers a smaller menu of deliciousness for a smaller budget. It’s a great option for families with small children.

For the Tex-Mex lovers, there are Chuy’s 18035 I-45 in Shenandoah), Lupe Tortilla (19437 I-45 in Shenandoah) and Guadalajara Hacienda (27885 I-45 in The Woodlands). Pappadeaux (18165 I-45 in Shenandoah) and Crabdaddy’s (25186 I-45 in Spring) satisfy creole cravings. And if it’s a hearty steak you’re looking for, look no further than Perry’s Grille and Steakhouse (6700 Woodlands Parkway).

Military Veterans relocating to the Woodlands interested in the nightlife scene, look no further than the Market Street Waterway. The Goose’s Acre (21 Waterway Ave. #140), the pioneer of the Waterway nightlife movement, is an Irish pub drawing everything from college coeds to 50-something businessmen. Not just a place to sit and drink, they offer something in the way of entertainment nearly every night of the week: acoustic Wednesdays, bingo Thursdays and monthly theme parties to name a few.

The Exchange (24 Waterway Ave.) is a fun concept bar and one that’s very unique to the Houston nightlife scene. Beer prices fluctuate as the current consumer demands rise and lower. Every 20 minutes, these prices are displayed on big screen TV’s planted throughout the bar. To make things easier for servers and patrons, each table comes equipped with a call button to summon the wait staff when needed.

As of 2011, the median cost of a home in The Woodlands is $274,100. Veterans moving to Texas can qualify for up to $417,000 with no down payment when utilizing their VA loan. Housing options range from single-family homes with a price tag under $200,000 to million-dollar high rises. If the thought of finding that one gem among thousands of potential dream homes is just too overwhelming, the “Homefinder Center” is something worth exploring. It is located just inside the main entrance to The Woodlands neighborhood.
