I am a resident of The Woodlands and have been for a number of years. There is ZERO to do in this burg. If you are not a cranberry farmer or horse owner you will be ostracized. Don't even consider moving here if you don't own a car as there are neither buses, trains nor taxi's available.
On the opposite side of town is the Town House, police and fire stations as well as the tiny post office, town's only traffic light, the only church in town (outsiders are not welcome), a breakfast and lunch cafe (ruled by the farmers), a gas station and a convenience/liquor store. The closest supermarkets and pharmacies are Shaw's in neighboring Carver or Stop & Shop and Hannaford's in Kingston.
The Kingston Collection mall (where there is a Regal Cinema multiplex) is a ways away and is close to the Commerce Place Mall in Plymouth. As to the Services in Plympton--forget-about-it! There is a Council On Aging in name only. They do have a driver who will take you to doctors appointments but that's it. There is NO senior center.
The Woodlands has neither a backup generator nor a flagpole to raise Old Glory. As a veteran I consider this an insult. And remember that this a HUD 202 facility for low-income seniors 62 and over. This means it's US Government facility. Due to a convoluted water system that originates in Kingston there are many fire alarms. During Blizzard Nemo we were without heat or electricity for three days. Most of us lost hundreds of dollars of food each. One frigid, snowy, icy night we each had to leave our apartments and stand in the frigid conditions until the call fire department arrived 20-30 minutes later.
At this point you may be wondering why I don't move. The answer is simple. There is no available affordable housing in this entire region. I've checked. Now, with inoperable cancer in both lungs it's not worth the effort. It may take death to do it but, within a year my years of suffering in this matriarchal, male bashing environment, I will get out.
I hope that I have answered your questions. In short, DO NOT CONSIDER MOVING INTO THE WOODLANDS!

When you see /sold/ as part of the URL the property is no longer for sale and is instead being used to gather names and emails to sell as leads.
I would contact a local real estate professional to help with this answer and to save time and money.
(Not me, I'm on the Cape, but I can help you choose a local pro if you want help doing so.)
